Wagoon launches Groupon-model site, Toku-ten, selecting restaurants based on WOM analysis

Toku-ten basically adopts the same business model as other Groupon-model services such as Piku and KAUPON. The main characteristics of the service is that it uses its original word-of-mouth analyzing tool to select restaurants offering coupons. Wagoon uses the tool to crawl and analyze word-of-mouth information on Twitter, mixi, Ameba blog, and livedoor blog and do sales activity targeting for restaurants with more than 80% of positive comments.
