• The rankings by mentions and by their impact are dominated by the US, EU, Great Britain, and Germany. The rankings are influenced by developments in the coronavirus crisis, although in the case of the United States, Joe Biden’s inauguration as president has a major role to play.
  • Compared to the previous month, the only actors for which the number of mentions has increased were the US and Israel. The rest of the monitored items have registered decreasing scores.
  • In terms of views (impact of mentions), compared to the previous month, the US, Russia, and Israel have registered increases, while the rest of the actors were declining.
  • There were more mentions and a higher impact in the online press, as compared to social networks, for all analyzed actors.
  • Although specific topics also generate discussions, a vast majority of mentions, both in online media and on social networks in Romania, appear in connection to the coronavirus pandemic (with a special focus on vaccination) and to Joe Biden’s inauguration as President of the United States, in the case of the US.
