Lok Sabha elections 2014

The battle of titans at Varanasi

As Indian political scenario is hotting up, and there is lots of buzz on social media. A TV channel was saying that as per a study, about 160 LS seats will have influence of Social Media this election. This is natural to know how our leaders are faring on social media. So far, we only hear terms about how active someone is or how many conversations are being done.


But there has not been a single holistic view which could truly measure the popularity. There is a free android application “Pulse” available which provides exactly this information. No more and no less. It gives the one single view of Leader’s popularity. You can download this app on any android device and monitor the social media activity for yourself.

Who tops the chart

This app provides a single view of popularity scores, and it also tells how much a leader’s popularity has gone up or down from the previous period. This app has really captured the sentiments as I noticed the day Arvind Kejriwal and Punya Prasoon Vajpayee video went viral, there was a sharp drop in the popularity of Arvind Kejriwal.

This app shows that Arvind Kejriwal and Narendra Modi are the leaders on social media, while Rahul Gandhi is not necessarily at third place.  This also shows some not so obvious names such as Rajnath Singh well ahead of other national figures, telling that their social media campaign is managed well.
