Vocativ's New Social Map Gives Users a Taste of Its Data Mining Technology

Digital media startup Vocativ has launched with ambitions to use data mining techniques for journalistic ends. On Thursday, Vocativ is launching Social Map, a public tool that lets users search for location-specific information such as tweets, Instagram posts or YouTube videos. Vocativ began publishing in October 2013 with a focus on using data to find stories and perspectives that would form the basis for news stories.
