  • 35. The Unmetric Score has two components - the Audience Strength and the Engagement Score. The Audience strength represents the size (share of market, presence) of the brand within the social network, and the Engagement score represents the brand’s engagement with customers (interaction, velocity). These components are built from a number of underlying metrics including (but not limited to) Total Fans, People Talking About, Engagement of brand, Sentiment of posts, Number of Admin Posts, Fan Growth rate for Facebook. These metrics are run through a number of statistical filters (normalizing across the sector, normalizing variances between metrics, outlier filtering, weighted averaging etc) to produce a single benchmarkable score. The number is normalized to give brands a score between 0 and 100. Hypothetically, the best performing brand within the sector is assigned a score of 100. All other brands within the sector are scored relative to this. The scores are unique to each sector and cannot be compared. A score of 80 in the Aviation industry is different from a score of 80 in the Banking industry. Unmetric Score
