Crimson Hexagon Illuminate’s the Response to Bin Laden’s Death

This Is How The World Reacted To Osama Bin Laden’s Death

Social Media Reaction

Crowd sourcing is absolutely fascinating to me! I enjoy seeing everything Crimson Hexagon does in terms of social media analysis, what an amazing tool for gauging the mood of the masses. Too, I am drawn to the large distinction between the myths and stereotypes that the media portrays and reinforces and the reality of the multifaceted reaction to such a complex event as expressed in through various social media.

Separating truth from myth is an important part of what we do as political scientists, and I love to see a tool such as Crimson Hexagon that can do just that!
