New topics are formed and/or recalculated every 5 to 60 minutes and with every 333 messages (default). As new tweets or messages are published, Compass will automatically be classified into a new or existing topic.
The New Topic Share of Voice graph shows the share of voice for each new topic out of the total conversation related to the seed and related keywords. The share of voice percentage for a new topic represents the volume of that topic as a percentage of all new topics.
There are three actions you can take with a new topic. You can access these actions by hovering your mouse over the top right-hand corner of a topic. The following menu will appear:
The Save Topic will save the selected topic to the Saved Topics panel. In some cases, you may see a topic appear in the New Topics panel that you find particularly interesting or want to follow over a period of time. The best way to do this is to save the topic, which will move it to the Saved Topics panel and prevent it from dropping out of the project if the conversation in this topic begins to decline.
The Block Topic option enables you to block a topic. See the article on "Blocking Topics" for more information.
The More Information option will open a new panel displaying additional information about the topic, including the tweets or messages that are included in the topic.
