Despite its dropped calls it's the best phone out there," would count as a positive post with one negative and two positive references.

Not surprisingly, the technology brands score highly overall, partially based on the volume of posts they receive -- people love to use technology to talk about technology. High volume isn't enough to put you on top. There is such a thing as bad online publicity as BP, Toyota and Visa demonstrate.
Consumer-technology brands such as Canon lead in article positivity -- they often get dinged in reference scores because even positive reviews tend to include some negative comments. Pharmaceuticals, banks and BP lag at the bottom of both scores.

When you drill deeper into the reference positivity, cosmetic and personal-care brands dominate the top 10. There are brands that people talk about, but don't usually have negative comments about.
