Last week started with the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, going up against Downton Abbey on PBS. During the week, we launched our exclusive coverage of the Social TV Thought Leadership Roadshow in New York as Viacom and Zeebox announced a deal and Viggle announced earnings.
So, what were our readers enjoying? We had another great week in views, up 22 percent over the previous week.
Three stories were our most popular for the week:
The daily round of must-read articles followed Tuesday night’s State of the Union address and the news that Comcast had accelerated its purchase of the remaining portion of NBCUniversal from GE, and the Twitter and Amex Sync deal.
Monday’s must-reads followed the weekend blizzard at socked the northeast U.S. with record snowfalls and the Weather Channel reaped the social media benefits of #Nemo.
We highlighted the afternoon session of the second day of the Social TV roadshow at the BBDO agency in midtown Manhattan.
For the week, the most popular link on our site was to our @socialtvdaily Twitter feed. Two links to stories from California also grabbed our reader’s attention :
- App makers see gold mine in TV, an article from San Jose about a TV hackathon in San Francisco
- and an opinion piece from LA Weekly about how live tweeting is ruining food shows on TV.
