Ever wanted to know which words pop up a lot in your LinkedIn posts? Or, what tone you write in?
MonkeyLearn provides two free tools for this: a word cloud generator and a sentiment analyser.
A word cloud is a visual representation of data that depicts the frequency of words by giving greater prominence to those that appear more often.
Sentiment analysis uses natural language processing (NLP) to determine whether data is positive, negative or neutral.
I exported my LinkedIn archive and dug up my historical post data (only main posts between 2018–2022). I then ran this through the Word Cloud Generator and Sentiment Analyzer.
Go to Settings & Privacy > Data Privacy > Get a copy of your data and request a full archive. Once it arrives, extract the file and locate Shares.csv to obtain your historical post data.
For the word cloud, predictably, all the words I expected were up there, with ‘excel’ the runaway leader (have I really said that 243 times?).
As for the sentiment analysis, it gave me a ‘Neutral’ with 58.4% confidence. Probably about right.
