Nielsen hopes to get social with Facebook, Twitter ‘conversation’ data
Jan 20 2016

There’s not a lot of love lost between media research firm Nielsen and TV and advertising executives who bemoan the rating company’s sampling approach to measuring the viewership of homes.

For years those execs have challenged the accuracy of basing a TV show’s popularity on the viewing habits of 25,000 Nielsen homes and even when the company recently bumped that sample to 40,000 homes – out of 116.4 million potential TV households – critics scoffed at the move.

YouTube to be included in German TV ratings measurement
Apr 28 2015

YouTube has made it into the mainstream… at least in Germany where television research working group AGF says it will begin including data from YouTube in its figures.

AGF said it will be able to provide convergent TV and online video usage figures – which it will publish later this year -- through the integration of YouTube and other video platforms.

The move shows just how important – and how common – consumption of media on multiple screens has become.
