Graph Your Inbox – The new Xobni?

When I use to use Microsoft Outlook for Email, I couldn’t live without the Xobni (Inbox spelt backwards).

At Datarati, we use Google Apps for Email so this new Chrome extention really got my attention.

Graph Your Inbox is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to graph Gmail activity over time. You can use it to visualise your communication with friends, your Facebook activity, when you purchased items on Amazon or how often you use certain words or phrases.

They provide the same search functionality used by Gmail, but instead of a list of messages they show you a graph of your email trends over time.

World Cup Keywords in Status Updates

Filed under: Data, Datarati, Visualisation | Tags:

Graphs displaying the prevalence of World Cup-related keywords in status updates have been posted by Facebook’s own Page to a photo album calledHeartbeat of the World Cup.

While the charts are entertaining, the lack of a Y-axis detailing the actual volume of status messages featuring a keyword limits interpretation of the data.

Facebook announced a big overhaul of its Insights analytics tool earlier this week at its f8 developer conference.

The new version is live now, and provides much improved analysis for Page, application and web site owners.

Upgrades include a new dashboard, visualization tools, a lot of new data to look at, and an API so developers can extract and analyse data on their own.

Here’s a detailed look at all the changes; you can also watch a video of Facebook engineers discussing the changes, here.

The evolution of customer data

The diagram above was created by Jill Dyche at SmartData Collective and  starts from the inside out.

It paints the picture for executives that customer data is evolution and not revolution and that—as with most successful business accomplishments—it involves a deliberate approach.

A customer who doesn’t exist can’t buy a product.

You can’t mail the customer an offer if you don’t know where he lives.

A customer can’t abandon a shopping cart if she isn’t in the store.
