Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) and trueAnthem announced today a research and technology partnership focused on tracking the social sharing of FOX’s digital television content and measuring its social influence. Using its patent-pending technology, trueAnthem will provide FOX social measurement capabilities that will enable the network to assess deeper audience, content and engagement intelligence and to more effectively tailor its marketing campaigns. This partnership marks the first time a broadcast network has invested significant resources in capturing the value of earned media.
“Social TV is a key priority for FOX, and in order to drive social conversation with our viewers, it’s critical that we understand the way they interact with our content,” said Melva Benoit, SVP Audience Intelligence and Research Strategy for FOX. “By teaming with trueAnthem, we will not only gain a more detailed profile of our audience in the social space, but can also provide our brand partners with deeper insight into the performance and quality of our digital content.”
“We are thrilled to partner and track real-time social viewing and content sharing with such a top-tier content company as FOX. Our technology will help FOX reach new social audiences and acquire insight based on reach, relevancy and advocacy,” added Chris Hart, trueAnthem’s CEO. “With these insights, FOX will be able to advance their digital content, optimize distribution and quantify the value of their Earned Media.”
trueAnthem measures audience awareness, engagement, viral distribution and influencer metrics in real time to assess the performance and quality of digital content across multiple social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus and LinkedIn. Implementing the trueInsights Share Plug-in to FOX’s digital video player, FOX and trueAnthem will capture the social sharing of the network’s paid and owned short-form video content. As that content is shared, the companies will measure the shared content’s viral spread, including the various social platforms it is shared to and the types of users who are sharing it.
