ABOUT THE AWARDS:
The awards are based on the Company’s proprietary TotalSocial® data and analytics, which continuously measures the online and offline social metrics that are proven drivers of business performance. These metrics, including both online and offline conversations against the following major conversation dimensions: net sentiment (the difference in the percent positive conversations minus negative), brand sharing (the extent to which people are sharing or talking about a brand’s marketing or advertising), volume (a measure of how many conversations mention a brand) and influence (the extent to which an influential audience is talking about a brand). Over the next several months, Engagement Labs will announce awards for the highest scoring brands in each TotalSocial category. Our technology platform, TotalSocial, and the propriety analytical scoring system that drives it, are the basis for these awards.
