mrmilesweaver:

80% of Facebook TV chatter from mobiles | Advanced Television

mrmilesweaver:

"Key findings from the analysis of real-time patterns and types of engagement include:

- Real-time interactions: TV-related Facebook interactions happen during the show airing.

- Widespread reach: The scale of TV-related chatter seen on Facebook corresponds to the broad reach of the social network. Shows such as the Sound of Music Live and Breaking Bad generate 7.34 million and 4.47 million audience interactions respectively.

- Mobile engagement: 80 per cent of TV-related chatter on Facebook is generated from mobile devices.

- Multiple interaction opportunities. Posts are most closely aligned to real-time TV ‘events’; the bulk of TV conversations are contained in Comments; Likes have a long tail of engagement.”
