Their research team compared the number of fans (Facebook likes and Twitter followers) for six highly promoted shows, and examined the volume of social media mentions for each show across all social media channels. The analysis uses Viralheat’s powerful sentiment analysis technology to determine whether the social media chatter for each show is positive or negative.
