Experts: Social Data Is Key to Measuring Television Success - 0 views

  • Seevibes created its own “Seevibes Score” — a composite score that consolidates data on market share, social impressions, loyalty levels, engagement rate, frequency, and level of response — to gauge how a show is performing socially. “The level of audience engagement with TV via social networks with television has surged by 500% year-after-year. This can make it difficult to compare broadcast numbers over time,” explains Maisonnave
  • “These social data points are giving us a new barometer for success or failure when we’re talking about engaging TV audiences,” says Youngling. “Content, both programmatic and advertorial, is now subject to an entirely new set of consumer-driven metrics. We talked about must-see TV back in the Seinfeld days, and now it’s evolving into the idea of must-comment TV.”
  • “Twitter didn’t have to train or persuade people to change their behavior,” says Bugbee of the network’s television chatter. “It just had to capitalize on what people were already doing. I think that’s why Twitter’s so powerful: it’s easy, it’s obvious, and it’s open.”

  • “There are calls to action in all sorts of programming that are encouraging people to get involved and continue the dialog with that programming,” says Youngling. “For brands, the data is really showing that it’s incredibly impactful and meaningful. When you give audiences the opportunity to interact, they will.”
  • “If shows don’t get good ratings they don’t stay on the air,” says Bugbee. “You see television encouraging social activity with hashtags on shows. Ostensibly, if I’m not watching Dancing with the Stars and I see a lot of posts from my friends who are talking about it, maybe I should tune in.”

Three reasons why Facebook can't beat Twitter for social TV | Econsultancy - 0 views

  • The branded nature of the most prominent Facebook posts when searching for terms means I’m really looking at mini PR statements. But in the heat of my favourite TV show, I’m not looking for PR, I’m looking for reactions, things I can agree and disagree with.
  • not only do the hashtags create no additional exposure; they have a negative effect on virality.

Why Facebook and Twitter Are Fighting Over Your Television - Claire Peracchio - The Atl... - 0 views

  • TV is still the biggest, commanding roughly $70 billion in annual advertising.
  • Nielsen reports that online video accounts for a small portion of time spent watching TV, just over 2%, even after including YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu.  
  • Facebook and Twitter have the same grand strategy to cut a slice of that $70 billion. Unike Netflix and Hulu, their plan isn’t to take attention away from TV, but rather to attract more attention to TV advertising.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • In the lead-up to its IPO this fall, Twitter launched Amplify, which partners with TV channels to pump promoted tweets and short video clips (co-branded by an advertiser and network) into feeds where users are likely to be tuned into the channel. Nielsen has reported that these doubled-up ads translated to a 58-percent-higher purchase intent for consumers.
  • In 29 percent of episodes surveyed, Twitter activity boosted live television viewership in a “statistically significant” way, and 48 percent of the time, higher TV viewership led to a higher tweet volume.

Nielsen and Twitter Unveil Social TV Metrics, Showing How Little Tweets Line Up with Ra... - 0 views

  • ne thing is immediately clear: There is practically no overlap between the most-tweeted shows on TV and the highest-rated shows.
  • Seen through a Twitter lens, the No. 1 television show for the week of Sept. 23 to 29 was AMC’s “Breaking Bad” by a mile, with 9.28 million people seeing tweets about the show’s finale — but the episode wasn’t even among the top 20 in total viewership for the period, according to Nielsen primetime ratings.
  • But the divergence between the top shows Americans actually watch on TV and what they talk about on Twitter illustrates that there is not a strong correlation, today, between the two mediums. Only one show, two airings of NBC’s “The Voice,” appear in both top 10 rankings.

  • the data shows the Twitter TV audience for an episode is, on average, 50 times larger than the authors who are generating tweets.
  • In its IPO filing, Twitter said the Nielsen Twitter TV Rating will “not directly generate revenue” but said, “we believe (it) will enhance our attractiveness to users and advertisers.”
  • Facebook, which has a total user base more than five times the size of Twitter’s, is playing catch-up to Twitter in trying to provide a similar guide for how social activity on its service relates to TV. Last week, Facebook began sharing weekly data about interactions among U.S. users for about 45 broadcast shows in primetime with ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC and a few other partners.

MediaPost Publications Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings Deliver Profile, Reach Of Viewers 10/... - 0 views

  • Nielsen says what is new here is determining “reach," the unique audience/impressions.
  • the entire Twitter TV audience for per episode is, on average, 50 times larger than the authors. If, for example, 2,000 people are tweeting about a program, 100,000 people are seeing those Tweets. Those 100,000 aren’t necessarily viewers of that particular TV episode.
  • Nielsen Twitter TV Ratings are a separate set of metrics to traditional National TV Ratings. They do not change traditional National TV Ratings. But many believe they will complement each other.

Twitter Spoiler Block: Netflix Has Spoiler Foiler for 'Breaking Bad' | Variety - 0 views

  • The app takes an aggressive approach, blocking any tweet with the words “breaking” or “bad,” even if they may have nothing to do with the show, or are merely innocent comments on the show’s Emmy win. However, for those who have to wait to watch the finale, it may be better to be safe than sorry.
  • “Bad” fans can log into the website through Twitter and view a relatively normal version of their timeline, the only change being that tweets that could contain spoilers are blacked out with a spoiler warning. They have the option of clicking on the tweet to view it, if they so dare.

Nielsen: Commercial Breaks Aren't Twitter Breaks | Adweek - 0 views

  • ccording to Nielsen’s SocialGuide service, the heaviest Twitter activity appears to be happening during real-time programming minutes and not commercial breaks. After analyzing data culled from 59 broadcast and cable programs, SocialGuide concluded that nearly three-quarters (70 percent) of all airtime tweets were sent during the actual content.
  • when the spot load is light, the share of tweets issued during the breaks is also light. By the same token, when the programming is weighed down by multiple spots, the volume of tweets sent in commercial time rises proportionately.   
  • in some of the more compelling programs there are spikes in Twitter activity that coincide with significant plot moments

  • Last month, Nielsen released a study suggesting that the volume of tweets related to a given broadcast “caused significant changes in live TV ratings” 29 percent of the time.

Twitter Acquires Trendrr in Quest to Own Real-Time Conversation - Digits - WSJ - 0 views

  • Trendrr calls itself a real-time company that processes and tries to make sense out of the data surrounding television, media and brands. Trendrr’s products — Curatorr and Trendrr.TV
  • Having sat at this intersection of TV and social media for years, we’ve analyzed data from lots of platforms. What makes Twitter uniquely compelling among these platforms is its connection to the live moment — people sharing what’s happening, when it’s happening, to the world. We think we can help amplify even stronger the power of that connection to the moment inside of Twitter.
  • Twitter in May rolled out new products that let advertisers target people on Twitter who had just seen their ads on TV. The update was born out of Twitter’s acquisition of Bluefin Labs, another social TV tracker. The move wasn’t so much a boon for media companies as much as a display of how Twitter can work on a second screen alongside TV.

  • 87% of consumers are splitting their attention between the TV and their laptops, smartphones and tablet computers. Here's the kicker: Although such distracted viewing is common, fewer people are using these second screens to interact with the applications designed specifically for the TV programs they're watching.
  • Although these so-called "companion" applications are popular with some viewers, they don't resonate with most consumers,
  • 47% of viewers have used their portable devices to learn more about the TV shows or movies they're watching, or the actors appearing on screen. But they are turning to established sources, including IMDb, Wikipedia and social networks, for such information, NPD found.
