Trends Stats 2.0 in Politics

By | March 5, 2007

A graph comparing book sales on computer languages between January 2006 and January 2007 revealed that ActionAcript book represented less than 5% of the market [via O’Reilly Radar].
Let’s compare this stats with a blog analyses, just to see how much blogging and buzz can be taken seriously for a new way of making statistics. I used blogpulse to make a graph comparing the buzz about javascript, actionscript and Java.


Flash Trends

Obviously in this case we can tust blog to see how people react in the real world.
And what if we do politic stat with blog analyses? For example in the French presidential election I compared the big 3 names in no particular order: François Bayrou, Nicolas Sarkozy, Ségolène Royal (sorry for the others …)

French presidential election Stats
Well what can we see? According to the latest statistic made by ipsos for lepoint the stats extracted from the buzz trends seems correct. These tools are great for ego-surfing but even greater for social statistics.
This year it’s really the beging of presidential election 2.0, the candidates in France and as far as I know also in US are using the web very more agresivly. A funny example, try the website, you’ll be surprised 😉
