Never heard about clusters? Don’t worry – just try them out! You will definitely love them!
Clusters are about finding a group of people, who think the same way as you about a certain topic. Such group of people is characterized by certain traits (e.g. age, profession, education, region, etc.). An example of a social group is "IT-engineers from Berlin (Germany) at the age of 30-45".
Much more than this, clustering tells you how your opinion corresponds to opinions of your friends from social networks (Facebook, Google+, Twitter) and to people, who are similar to you (who have similar age, profession, education, etc.).
