PlusRated – Peer Rating, Skills Appraisal, Self Improvement, Personal Development and Social Reviews
http://www.plusrated.com/

PlusRated is NOT just another business networking site. With an eye toward self-improvement, the platform integrates professional & personal reviews with social space. Through peer review, PlusRated identifies your real strengths and weaknesses, by specific skill, so you can quickly see where you excel and what needs improvement. Most people realize that it isn’t what you know but whom you know that makes the difference in career and personal development. Of course the PlusRated platform allows you to make valuable business connections, but it also enables those connections to help you become a better professional. You collaborate with peers to access, monitor and grow specific skills. No other platform allows you to be reviewed on specific skills and then monitor your improvement. Feedback in LinkedIn is never bad; feedback in PlusRated is always helpful. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Media Patterns – Detecting Patterns in the Global Media Content

Media Patterns – Detecting Patterns in the Global Media Content
http://mediapatterns.enm.bris.ac.uk/

Every day hundreds of millions of people read millions of news items, in dozens of languages. These news, coming from newswires, newspapers, broadcast or social media, play a crucial role in shaping public opinion and informing the democratic process, as well as influencing markets and industry. Each item forming this enormous stream of information has been written, or chosen, by an editor, with the purpose of satisfying the information need of the intended audience (as well as a variety of other constraints). The contents of the news mediasphere form a dynamic and complex landscape, but not one without patterns and regularities. Social scientists have been interested in understanding them, as they both reflect and influence patterns in public opinion and society. This study has the purpose of automating the analysis of news content, by deploying state of the art methodologies from Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining and Web Technologies. We analyse millions of articles from hundreds of outlets and tens of languages, to understand what laws influence the contents of the media system. They have already detected several strong such patterns. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
