According to various estimates, today more than 80% of images and videos on the network are posted without any text at all and even without hashtags. This means that entrepreneurs do not see more than ⅘ of all references to their brand and, actually, are not aware of the real attitude of consumers for the company. To know which of the printed visual posts tend to be related to your services and products, logo recognition technology is used.
