NEW YORK -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- At the Pivot Conference in New York today, Bottlenose announced immediate availability of Sonar Solo, the free real-time visualization of trending people, topics and content emerging at any moment in the global conversational stream. Sonar Solo is the first of a planned series of free tools and experimental releases direct from Bottlenose R&D, under the banner Bottlenose Labs.
The new Sonar Solo – a free and simplified version of Sonar, the premier feature in Nerve Center, the Bottlenose enterprise product — allows anyone to search any topic to find trends and influencers about any subject, in real time. Click on any name or topic in Sonar Solo's visual array of trends to see the messages and people fueling any given trend in real time. It's simple, fast, fun and free.
Sonar Solo consumes the global Twitter firehose, applying advanced techniques for distilling trends from overwhelmingly vast data streams of hundreds of millions of messages, for real-time display and exploration. Enter anything in the search box, watch the real-time movement of associated trends explode in the Sonar field, and then click on anything for a content view. You can share any Sonar Solo search result, to keep others absolutely current about a trend, so that anyone can see what’s trending right now.
"We wanted everyone to experience the power of Sonar's real-time trend intelligence visualization, without restricting it to our large enterprise customers," said Nova Spivack, co-founder and CEO of Bottlenose, Inc. "Now, anyone with internet access can search for anything from their favorite celebrities to breaking news and current events, and everything in between, for a real-time view of what's trending in the collective consciousness."
Sonar Solo is available, free, now at sonar.bottlenose.com.
