Trendrr lands Nielsen exec to grow social TV metrics

Trendrr lands Nielsen exec to grow social TV metrics | second screen | Scoop.it
One of the great opportunities of social TV is establishing an “engagement rating,” but coming up with trusted metrics is more than a math problem. While most television networks, producers, showrunners and distributors understand the value of listening to the social “return loop” of television, there’s no consensus on how measure engagement and incremental tune-in — and how it translates into real dollars. Over the last few decades, Nielsen has created widely-accepted metrics around assigning value to TV, and Elrhoul’s hire should bring more industry credibility to Trendrr’s efforts on the social TV front. Of course, Nielsen is hard at work on its own social metrics, joining the list of competitors like Bluefin Labs, Networked Insights and SocialGuide.

Noticeably absent from BBC coverage is any promotion of hashtags. We’ve become used to seeing the BBC promote their own hashtags, such as #bbcqt, during their broadcasts. Ted Littledale from SecondSync notes it is surprising that they didn’t push #bbc2012 which is the hashtag being used by official BBC twitter accounts.
