Using Social Web Experience

After you’ve installed Social Web Experience and started Internet Explorer, you’ll notice that Web pages you visit thereafter will have text marked up with a rectangle. When you mouse over the rectangle, a Social Web Experience social popup will appear, like the following example:

In the above example, my friend was shopping on a Facebook virtual store named Bodega Shop and purchased 100 credits to use to buy other merchandise. His action was published to his newsfeed by Bodega, and Social Web Experience matched the key topic “virtual” in virtual item here to match the “virtual” in virtual currency on the web page. It then diplayed the relevant social data to me.
