What? What's that? What's that noise in the air? Oh, it's your college, being talked about on the internet.
According to media analytics company Global Language Monitor, good old Harvard is the most buzzed about university online, followed by Northwestern University.
Global Language Monitor used its Narrative Tracking technology to synthesize how frequently colleges appeared on blogs, Twitter and in online media.
"The TrendTopper MediaBuzz Rankings measure an institution's perceived value using the same methodologies used to compare any other products of value, such as BMW vs. Mercedes," said Paul JJ Payack, the president of Global Language Monitor. "GLM's TrendTopper MediaBuzz Rankings removes all bias inherent in each of the other published rankings, since they actually reflect what is being said and stated on the billions of web pages that we measure."
