The Oscars have become a major advertising event for television advertisers, so Alterian took the opportunity to monitor 19 Oscar Network TV advertisers to measure the ‘buzz’ generated within social media. In total Alterian collected 506,986 conversations from February 1, 2010 through March 7, 2010 using the Alterian SM2 social media monitoring application, relating to the Oscars. To help further understand these results Alterian developed a ‘Social Engagement Index’ and a ‘Sentiment Weighted Social Engagement Index’ to measure the volume and potential reach of conversations about each advertiser in order to understand their preliminary effectiveness in the social media universe.
