Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and other social web properties generate a wealth of valuable social data, but how can you tap into this data and discover who’s connecting with whom, which insights are lurking just beneath the surface, and what people are talking about? This book shows you how to answer these questions and many more. Each chapter combines popular and useful social web data with analysis techniques and visualization to help you find the needles in the social haystack that you've been looking for—as well as many you probably didn't even know existed.

Suppose you were in the process of creating a product, but at the same time you are curious as to which niche it would fit into. You may also be curious as to which niche is the most financially beneficial for your product, as well as perhaps you should tweak it to maximize your particular niche after mining the web for this data.
