Changes to Facebook Data

As of April 30, 2015, Facebook will be turning off access that allows companies like ours to extract public posts to their network (Details here). With 1.39 billion monthly users, Facebook has become the world’s largest record of human thought, but, in reality, Facebook’s Privacy and Sharing model means that less than 5% of all posts published to Facebook are publicly available and accessible for analysis.

Now, the only way to access data from Facebook will be to go through DataSift’s new Pylon program, which will offer anonymized and aggregated Facebook data analysis. As this program is available through DataSift, a current data supplier to our platform, we are evaluating the value and costs associated with offering this to our customer base.
In the meanwhile, the option to create a Facebook search project will be removed from the dropdown menu on NexaMaster. In response, we will be adding access to comments and wall posts from Facebook Pages to our platform – stay tuned for more information. Nexalogy is committed to ensuring that our customers have reliable and uninterrupted access to social media data sources. Join as we move ahead into the next chapter of this fast paced industry!

NexaLove: find partners according to tweet compatibility

Twitter Love
Montreal – Nexalogy Environics announces today the official launch of NexaLove, a website devoted to bringing individuals of high tweet compatibility together to form life-long relationships. NexaLove used fellow Montreal-based Mate1‘s matching questions* in conjunction with NxAPI to develop search queries and build semantic filters in order to match tweeters based on the content they tweet. Company officials are expected to find love themselves within 1 year of signing up.

Environics Research officials expect this product to improve investor confidence and widen its customer base. In addition to analyzing social data, NexaLove will permit Nexalogy to join the reigns of  “social good” enterprises, as well as diversify its current offerings. This is following the success of Tinder and OkCupid, with online dating startups  boasting an average valuation of $3.5M, according to Angel List.

More information is expected to be released following a shareholders meeting on April 2, 2015.
