LifeRaft has the ability to crawl all major social media websites (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and more) and based upon a combination of keywords, terms and other user defined settings, as well as sentiment and geofencing, it will identify conversations of interest. The uniqueness of the system includes, but is not limited to, the ability of the user to drill into conversations, relationships and history to better understand the specific context and nature of the individual’s comments and their social community.


LifeRaft will allow the user to identify persons of interest, follow them closely, and then flag any conversations and sentiments that enter into areas of concern. For example, in schools it might identify a discussion involving cyberbullying, bringing a weapon to school, truancy, etc.

The system will also allow the user to understand relationships, location patterns, and proactively allow situations, themes and people to be flagged and/or investigated.

Not only does LifeRaft assist Schools with bullying and threats, it is also an important tool for higher education to identify depression and possible self-harm where individual views are far more relevant than a consolidation of conversations.

LifeRaft greatly differs from the majority of the social listening solutions in that it allows for a very specific view of identified individuals, or themes tied to specific locations. Additionally, LifeRaft has the added functionality to follow these persons of interest and to geo-locate posts on a map when meta data is available.

LifeRaft will also uncover sentiment that can be used as a leading indicator of *self-harm in the educational system. In the public sector for younger students, cyberbulling sentiment using LifeRaft can be monitored, uncovered and managed with an ability to identify and address issues quickly and effectively.

*1-2% of students enrolled in higher educational institutions attempt suicide in any given year with as many as 7% considering this course of action
