net sentiment scoreSocial listening tools are designed to help brands understand what their customers are saying about them online. In today’s digital era, many consumers turn to social media and review sites to comment on their experiences with brands, especially restaurants. White Box Social Intelligence™ is a guest satisfaction performance tool designed specifically for restaurant companies to help them understand what their guests are saying about their food, service, ambiance and more, as well as how it impacts their operational performance.

Many brands currently use Net Promoter Scores to measure guest satisfaction and online feedback. Now, White Box has released its newest feature to take this measurement to the next level. Net Sentiment Score is a brand new, comprehensive metric that analyzes guest satisfaction through both social and survey data.

What is Net Sentiment Score?

Net Sentiment Score is calculated by subtracting the percentage of negative online mentions from the percentage of positive online mentions for a brand. These mentions are pulled from major social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and also include feedback gathered from online surveys.

While this information is useful by itself, TDn2K™ research has also shown that Net Sentiment Score has a very strong correlation to comp sales growth and turnover rates for restaurant brands.

Check out the video below for more details on how Net Sentiment Score is calculated and why it is an indispensable tool for your restaurant brand.


All members of White Box Social Intelligence now have the flexibility to view their brand’s Net Sentiment Score in the online White Box dashboard as well as the PDF reporting. Additionally, Net Sentiment Score will also be available in the new TDn2K Scorecard.
