On the slidedeck, The State of Social TV and the Second Screen shared by Shayna Blumenthal, Marketing and Social Media Consultant, she offers some insights in the current evolution of the Broadcast and Media industry:
For example, 95% of all public chatter about TV happens on Twitter – Social can drive up to 50% of the conversation centered around sports, and speculates on what’s to come in the future.
TV has become the new catalyst causing people to engage in social media. As viewers watch their favorite shows, they chat online with friends and family. Which shows are drawing the most commenters and the largest share of conversation? Bluefin Labs has developed a measurement system to measure engagement during shows and the connections between shows ‘ ‘cross-show engagement.’
In a world of paid, owned and earned media, this information enables networks to collect social media response at the scale that advertisers need.
The Audience Measurement Event is pleased to welcome keynote Deb Roy, Co-Founder & CEO of Bluefin Labs when he presents ‘Closing the Gap between Social Media & Mass Communication’ this May.
