By Ed Keller The relationship between social media and TV is of considerable interest to media owners, agencies, and brands. Twitter is investing heavily to buy social media monitoring companies, and Facebook too is seeking to bolster its claim on social engagement with TV. There’s no doubt that ‘Social TV’ has become the subject of much speculation. But just how significant is the television viewer’s engagement with social media while they are watching prime time TV? Are certain demographic groups more engaged socially than others when it comes to TV, and are they the ones we generally associated with social media? What about genres – which capture the greatest degree of social engagement? These and other questions are answered by a major new study that was recently released study by
by Ed Keller Keller Fay and other commentators have noted the link between emotion and brand word of mouth (WOM) on a number of occasions. In particular, a major academic study (On Brands and Word of Mouth) notes that emotion is a key trigger of brand buzz: “the motive to share positive or negative feelings about brands in order to express these emotions or balance emotional arousal.” A similar point is made by Wharton professor Jonah Berger in his bestselling book Contagious: Why Things Catch On, noting that emotion is one of the major ingredients that causes things to be talked about or shared: “When we care, we share.” Some emotion-driven buzz is a reaction to a brand experience or event – a great product or service experience, an ad,

The reality is that most of us don’t tweet or post at all while we’re plopped in front of the tube. When we do, half the time we’re talking about something other than TV. And social media conversation is far weaker than traditional factors, like TV commercials for new shows or our sheer laziness in changing channels, in prompting us to tune into each season’s new offerings. Those are among the crucial findings of a new study released Thursday by the Council for Research
A major new study also find that half of all social media activity while watching TV relates to TV, according to Council for Research Excellence By George Winslow March 24, 2014 on B&C website at: http://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/technology/research-tv-promos-still-more-effective-social-media/129992 A new study into the relationship of social media and television finds that social media is an increasingly important component of TV viewing, with about one in six viewers using social media during primetime and that half of that social media usage was related to TV, according to a new study from the Council for Research Excellence (CRE). But the study also found that traditional TV promos remain more effective than social media and that promos and commercials were the number one drive of the decision to view new shows.

by Ed Keller Samsung was the sponsor behind Ellen DeGeneres’s headline grabbing, record breaking, Twitter busting “selfie” at the Oscars. For Samsung, it was part of a much larger, longer-term march to become one of the most talked about brands in America. For quite a number of years running, Coke was the most talked about brand in America. Beginning in 2010 Apple started a sharp ascendancy and by Q4 of 2012 it had overtaken Coke. Samsung’s WOM is rising rapidly, as well, breaking into the top 10 in 2012 and into the top 5 in 2013. Samsung’s WOM not only grew sharply during the past two years, but especially during the all-important holiday shopping season. Samsung’s WOM increased by 150 million word of mouth impressions during the 2013 holidays versus
