Social data represents an important aspect of human communication. More and more services rely on stream analysis but analyzing the content of those streams is difficult since most of the resources available for text analysis are not a good fit for social data. In addition, the amount of data requires a level of scalability that brings particular challenges In this talk I will give an overview of new techniques for social data analysis and current efforts for scaling analysis pipelines. Finally I will describe some of the practical applications of these technologies and how the technology is being applied in the market on a daily basis.
