    • This is how TV engaged audiences in the 1960s. This doesn’t work today doesn t today.
    • We’ve tried to measure audience engagement with Nielsen data. This doesn’t work today either.
    • Modern viewers are consuming TV differently.
    • SOCIALLY, SOCIALLY During President Obama’s inauguration, CNN.com provided a social viewing experience to over 13M online viewers who, using Facebook, watched, debated, and EXPERIENCED the inauguration together. Source: CNN, January, 2009

Just as important in 2009, they can’t measure how the audience is interacting with what they watch. watch New audience measurement systems are needed. measuring social engagement index is a critical piece of the solution. LiveHive’s tvClickr community measures TV audiences which often exceed the size of what Nielsen can measure via their panel of 18,000 homes.
