Enter the Matrix...Week 34
For those of us that are time poor, and simply want a quick and easy way to get familiarised with the current news in the media this week, we have created a word cloud matrix. This graphic is really designed to get a high level overview of the main trends and stories in the media this week. In many ways it is simply the main talking points for the week and purely gives a quick recap of the significant events in a very visual way. The word cloud matrix gives a fresh perspective of the speed and momentum of a story in terms of time, frequency & country. Depending on where the story comes from significantly impacts the coverage and longevity of the story. If you want to know more about the main talking points why not use the Tricklar interactive word clouds to trace back to the relevant stories or simply search for the word directly via the Tricklar search menu.
