Maple Ridge, BC (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Christmas.com, the Official Site of Christmas™, has released the results of its 2012 Best of Brands analysis. This high-tech, Naughty or Nice List uses consumer sentiment mined from public Twitter comments to determine which brands are nice and which are naughty. The report has been released one-week in advance of US Black Friday sales when many consumers are shopping for Christmas gifts and are doing gift-buying research.
“Christmas.com makes Christmas easier for consumers,” said John Lyotier of Christmas.com. “We make it easier to find gifts, make it easier to plan for the holidays, and we make it easier to share with family and friends. This insight into consumer sentiment for many of the world’s leading brands reflects the real life comments of Americans and allows their feelings to be heard.”
Heading up the 2012 list of ‘nicest’ brands were Mercedes-Benz, IKEA, IBM, and Budweiser. Meanwhile Comcast, T-Mobile, Verizon, and American Airlines brought up the rear and were considered the ‘naughtiest’. Data for the list was gathered in the first two weeks of November 2012 and analyzed using a technology called Sentiment Analysis applied against the Twitter big pipe of data. For the 2012 analysis, 68 brands were studied.
Among the findings of this year’s list: Coca-Cola was nicer than Pepsi (81% vs. 65%); Samsung was nicer than Apple (66% vs. 57%); Google was nicer than Microsoft (70% vs. 53%); and UPS was nicer than FedEx (71% to 47%).
