Looking beyond just social media listening admin

One of the biggest challenge faced by brands implementing social media listening is that there is too much unstructured information and data. It is like what some of the folks in the industry call it, information puke. Absence of data is a worry and too much data is also a concern.
As written in one of our presentations earlier on Big data, One of the biggest challenge with so much data on social media is; deriving a meaningful contextual information.
Social media data is highly unstructured. Unlike other customer data from retail, banking etc. which is structured, data on social media is very unstructured.
