Are stock prices affected by social media? - FTSE Global Markets According to a survey of 360 UK financial professionals carried out by Colt Technology Services, social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook are affecting share price volatility. The research found that 63% of respondents, including brokers and heads of trading desks, believe the valuation of individual stocks can be directly linked to public sentiment contained in social media channels.

Firms such as hedge funds and proprietary trading houses are now able to scan social media data at random and then categorise messages into one of a range of public mood states. The firms then use algorithmic or high frequency trading strategies to place trade orders, enabling them to potentially steal a march on competitors who trade using more traditional forms of data.

HummingBird Pro Marketing Software for Twitter Which is the best mindmapping software? I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves.
