Name: Data Sift

DataSift offers services to businesses that aim to build business by utilizing social data. With his desire to help various organizations to improve their understanding and use of Social Media, Nick Halstead started DataSift as an offshoot from the popular Twitter news feed service, TweetMeme.

But after realizing Social Media’s huge effect on businesses, Halstead created a platform that will help these businesses deal with Social Media by gathering social data.

Companies use DataSift to identify Pulse of Public Opinion in real time, uncover trends from Twitter’s history, build a complete target Audience Profile, and connect news with social conversation.
