The server service that hosted Beansight is shutting down. Therefore will have to switch to another service. This means that Beansight will be down for some long hours (about a day or so).
Sorry for the disturbance. We’ll be back asap!
Beansight just changed its layout. The new one will be more user-friendly and efficient.
Vote buttons are always on the right of the prediction in order to match with our reading direction (First the prediction is read, then it is voted). Probability to happen has been emphasized thanks to a gauge just under the vote buttons.
But our core improvement is our predictions feed. Beansight has so many predictions that it used to be very hard to find content you might be interested in. Now you just have to follow your friends and topics in order to see all predictions that match your interests:
We hope that this new feature will enhance the experience on Beansight. In order to benefit from it, make sure you follow your favorite topics:
Beansight opened in 2011. Let’s see what happened during those 9 months of existence. What was the main topics of discussion?
Sure, Beansight users like to talk about technologies (Apple, Google, Facebook…). Then comes sports with predictions on NBA and Football. There’s also politics with 2012 presidential elections (both in the US and in France).
So… who did well this year? Here is the general ranking of Beansight:
Congratulation to Guillaume Rosaz (grz73)! You’re the most reliable crystal ball!
As you can see, JeromeRuskin and mvaloatto succeeded in having a good ranking with very few predictions.
It seems that Apple inspired our top 3 as they scored about a third of their points with predictions concerning Cupertino.
That’s probably how Guillaume achieved to become Mr Beansight 2011!
As always, there are a lot of blogs that announce a bunch of predictions for new year. 2012 is no different. Here are the most popular one:
On this pages we can see some common topics, recorded on Beansight:
What do you think will happen in 2012? Please tell us on Beansight!
Until now, we refused to moderate content on Beansight. We first wanted to know how people would use our platform.
It’s quite clear now that some predictions damage the overall quality of Beansight. We have to do something.
Predictions will be moderated. But we’ll have to come with clear rules:
We hope that this work will give enhance the experience on Beansight.
Do you like it? Do you think this move is the right direction for Beansight? Please make sure to share your opinion on this prediction: “Beansight will be more strict in the moderation of predictions.”
Yes, Steve Jobs left his position as Apple CEO. He’s been replaced by Tim Cook. That’s a huge loss for Apple, as the success of the company was often linked to the charisma of its CEO.
The whole tech industry is shaking… What will happen to Apple, now that Jobs left? Well, that’s what we want to learn on Beansight. If you want to share your opinion or follow the trends for Apple, you can follow the topic Apple.
If you want to try a different voting experience, we decided to launch a dedicated website on Jobs’ resignation.
As you may know, Beansight is a French start-up. Does that mean we focus only on the French market? HELL NO! Our goal is to become mainstream. This means that we want to be a worldwide company.
And actually we already are! There are people from everywhere on Beansight. Obviously we have a large proportion of people from the United-States (about a third)… but there are also people from India, Turkey, Russia and so on. Just look at our stats from Google Analytics:
There also people who share Beansight all over the world. Our latest share went from Russia. Now… shall proceed to a multi-languages translation? It might be a little early for us. Let’s begin to people our community in English first!
We had the opportunity to show our platform to journalists and then there were conferences with about 400 attendees. Finally we had a bbq with a rock band playing in the parisian night. It was great!
It’s time for us to take some hindsight on our progress during these 6 month. Beansight grew up. Thanks to advice from mentors at Le Camping we succeed to build a great platform. It still needs improvement and we know we can do better, but it already secured almost 5,000 members which is great! Furthermore, the community is international with users from the US, France, Spain, Turkey and many other countries!
We know our milestones to go on this good track. This summer, we’re going to spread Beansight everywhere. If you’re a developer you can help us do so thanks to our API.

Our latest feature allows you to follow topics you like. If you’re on a prediction page, you can see tags on the top right corner. Here is an example with screen shots.
If you click on the tag ‘Google’, you’ll see all predictions about Google. That’s great! But it’s not over…
You can also follow the topic Google by clicking on the star on the top left corner. We are aware that it’s not easy to understand that we can follow a topic by clicking on the star. If you have any idea on how to present it, we’ll be more than happy to listen to you!
