From the Sency founder, Evan Britton:
“As you know Sency makes it easy for anyone to search the real time web to see what’s being said right now. We have launched the capability to let users find out what people are saying right now from 13 major US Cities.
In addition to letting the user search for what’s being said inside an actual city for a given keyword, Sency for Cities will also show the 10 most talked about topics right now in a given city.
The 13 cities included in this launch are: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC.
There are many potential uses for Sency for Cities, here are a few of them:
-Sports fans can now see, in real time, what people in their city, and rival cities, are saying about a given team or player.
-When a new movie, commercial, or product launches; businesses can now see how the sentiment from the public differs in each of the major cities.
-When there is an important event or breaking news inside a major city – anyone can see how people inside the city, whom are directly affected, are reacting. This can be compared with what outsiders are saying from cities not directly involved with the breaking news or event.
-The current hot topics for a given city can show what is happening and being most talked about in a city right now. This can introduce new events to users while highlighting the topics that a city is buzzing about right now.
