Sysomos is celebrating the indexing of 100,000,000,000 social posts. This milestone of collecting social media data in real time from various sources (such as blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and news sources) is the equivalent of 14 times the population of the Earth. Now we know why they say perspective is everything.

This interesting news was found on Melodika in their post titled, “Social Media Monitoring Leader Sysomos Indexes 100,000,000,000th Post.” Not only does Sysomos index this massive amount of data, it is available for query and analyzing in real time.

This is an amazing milestone, but considering the amount of data created each and every minute, it will be important to index it against a solid taxonomy to enable comprehensive findability. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
