WashingtonPost.com has an article illustrating how Blog Buzz Helps Catch Trends in the Making. Tracking the blog buzz has helped companies understand the customers’ thought process and has revealed emergence of trends early on.

Following online conversations is the latest attempt by companies to grapple with the growing clout of their customers.

But measuring sentiment expressed in cyberspace — whether provoked or not — has always been difficult. The high-powered new technologies aim to fill in the missing pieces by searching, tabulating and assessing Internet postings.

Cyberspace has become a powerful source of information about what customers think, what they want and what they will pay for. The online word of mouth not only helps in analyzing the current situation but also becomes a factor in composing the future strategy. As mentioned in the article, various companies are looking at blogs, forums, Internet social networks for feedback from customers. It helps them prepare better for doubts or skepticism that customers have or their wishlist resulting in better and better marketing.
