Q1. In you opinion, why is social sentiment important to marketing?

 A1. Not everyone is happy with your product; sentiment allows to identify negative (&positive) and treat them unique #MetricsChat @macroneus

 A1. pt2: also, as things progress to real-time it's humanly impossible to comprehend the volume of emotions #MetricsChat @macroneus

 A1. Additionally, everything you do should aim to change sentiment (for the better) or reinforce where it is already strong. #MetricsChat @greggweiss

 A1. Sentiment IS emotion - positive or negative - core to any relationship - online and offline. #MetricsChat @cbarrows

Q2. How can sentiment be collected to understand and use it effectively?

 A2. Behind facts there's emotional ways to tell a story&look someone digitally in the eye&connect. Focus on what it means to them! #MetricsChat @greggweis

 A2. @viralheat as @greggweiss mentioned social is a 2-way street, understand it and build a trust-worthy relationship #MetricsChat @macroneus

 A2. Sentiment doesn't need to be organized in a "numbers" fashion to be effectively used. More of a sliding scale #MetricsChat @lisakwiese

Q4. What are key metrics which indicate sentiment?

 A4. On the surface it's polarized: negative, neutral & positive #MetricsChat @macroneus

Q5. Have you seen a trend in more brands interested in their online sentiment?

 A5.  That's why we have brand managers. Brands care about their sentiment and want the first reaction to be good! #MetricsChat @lisakwiese

 A5. Definitely, especially as social integrates with other media such as TV #MetricsChat @macroneus

 A5. def seeing more of a 'voice' behind the brand and some biz have initials of those who are posting under the brand. #MetricsChat @SocialMarion

Q6: How do you segment mentions of your brand not related to your campaign?

 A6. this gets a bit more advanced: but 3 letters: NLP (Natural Language Processing) #MetricsChat @macroneus

 A6. By using @viralheat? ;-) #MetricsChat @kervinmarketing

 A6. You shouldn't segment- campaign is PART OF A WHOLE brand. Can't look at them as separate entities. They work 2gether #MetricsChat @lisakwiese
