Problem Statement

During the last political election, things got really heated up online. People on various social media platforms --- friends, family, the media, etc --- were throwing insults left and right. As a result, going online just sucked. Not only were people not getting reliable, useful information, but they were also being smothered with negativity.  

So our goal with this project was to create an ambient device that would notify users about the current climate on their social media platform(s). Our hope was that ultimately we would give users more control over their social media experience (so that they could avoid going on or actively post a positive message to help change the mood).
