Fizziology Analyzing Social Media to Provide Advertising Insights to the Television Industry

Social media research firm is joining Cognizant at the NAB Show to demonstrate how television viewer social media conversations can provide new insights to advertising and media partners

2012 NAB Show

HOLLYWOOD--()--Social media research company Fizziology is joining Cognizant, a leading provider of information technology, consulting, and business process outsourcing services, at the NAB Show to demonstrate its television social media sentiment research and the insight it provides for key advertising and business decisions. A leader in theatrical tracking of social media conversation since late 2009, Fizziology is now providing analysis and insights to television studios, networks, media agencies and brands.

“Lots of social media companies can run rankings and ratings. We’re listening for something deeper – turning all of this conversation and opinion into meaningful business intelligence”

With Fizziology’s research and consultation, brands and media agencies will now be able to make informed advertising decisions based on what viewers are saying in social media. Brands can understand if viewers are discussing their product category or brand in relation to a particular television show, the sentiment and exact topics surrounding the conversations and, with Fizziology’s research-based advice, how they can apply these findings to make intelligent advertising, product integration and brand partnership decisions. Networks and studios can also utilize Fizziology’s social media sentiment analysis to determine which brands to approach for partnerships on certain television shows.

“Lots of social media companies can run rankings and ratings. We’re listening for something deeper – turning all of this conversation and opinion into meaningful business intelligence,” said Ben Carlson, co-creator and president of Fizziology. “Television shows are great at creating social conversations, but what does that mean for advertisers? How can brands take advantage of this information and how can the people who make, air and sell television use this information? With deeper insights and analysis based in the realities of the television industry, we take social media from a ‘nice to know’ to a ‘need to know.’”

Building on its proven track record of analyzing social media sentiment to provide advertising advice, casting guidance, and even box office predictions to the movie industry, Fizziology is now providing the same research and consulting to the television industry. Unlike thin social listening dashboards, Fizziology uses real people in the analytics process to ensure an extremely high level of accuracy in the analysis and to unearth deeper insights. Fizziology’s highly trained team of analysts can detect sarcasm, misspellings and slang better than a software program, which means social media conservations are properly graded for sentiment – not to mention trends and conversation drivers that would otherwise be missed by an automated keyword search are spotted.
