Mashup: GetSentiment Restaurant Reviews

GetSentiment Restaurant Reviews is a web application that collects and analyzes people's mentions of visits to restaurants, on various social media sites, discussion forums, and travel sites. The application uses two API services: Webhose to collect relevant restaurant mentions, and GetSentiment to analyze them in terms of sentiment and topical categories. The system calls Webhose API several times a day, to retrieve freshly indexed mentions of restaurants, cafes, bars, bistros and pubs. Relevant text snippets are then extracted and submitted to GetSentiment API, which returns a list of domain topics found in a snippet as well as the sentiment score associated with each topic.
