Populr is both a public facing API and web application used to visualize the social capital ranking of celebrities based on a combination of social media and news analytics.
* Architected and assembled the database model and API interface of the Populr API
* Designed and implemented the algorithms used to calculate each person's populr "score" based on a number of variables
