    Datasift has released a new Historic Preview filter for running searches on its social data platform. The new feature offers five stock reports: Basic, Natural Language Processing Preview, Twitter Preview, Links Preview and Twitter Demographics.

    The idea behind Historic Preview is that it offers a quick snapshot of the type of data that customers will receive when running a full search. Custom reports can be generated through Datasift’s API.
