Shareablee Releases Inaugural U.S. Media 100 Index™ for Q1 2017
Disney leads consumer engagement at 937M social interactions, owning 10% share of all activity; WWE & Comcast/NBC lead in video engagement
New York, New York, April 24, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Today, Shareablee announces the industry-first U.S. Media 100 IndexTM, a ranking of the Top U.S. media companies based on video impact and audience engagement. The index’s foundation is Shareablee PowerRankings™, the all-new social media cross-platform rankings product available within the Shareablee platform.
The U.S. Media 100 IndexTM accounts for 70% of all consumer engagement and 76% of all video viewing in Q1 2017 across brand content on social media. Shareablee’s U.S. Media 100 IndexTM represents the most influential and powerful U.S. media organizations and the share of consumer attention, time and overall enthusiasm each company owns when it comes to entertaining, informative and valuable video experiences.
“Social media has reached a tipping point that requires performance measurement to get beyond simply counting if real dollars are going to continue to flow to native, branded and new yet-to-be-determined ad formats,” said Tania Yuki, Founder & CEO of Shareablee. “As video continues to explode, the consumer is more receptive than ever to powerful content, provided there is relevancy and a fair exchange of value. We believe the U.S. Media 100 IndexTM and our new Shareablee PowerRankings™ are a critical next step in shedding light on who is truly winning when it comes to the battle for consumer attention and loyalty.”
