Samsung, Engadget and Yahoo! Named Top Talked-About Brands at CES 2014, According to New Gorkana Report

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gorkana Group today released the findings of its Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 Social Insight Report, noting the top influencers, most buzzed-about organizations, most popular media outlets, and key trends and talking points from this closely watched tech event. Samsung took top billing as the most-discussed organization. As the official show website, Engadget was also the top media outlet for CES conversations, and Engadget's Executive Editor, Marc Perton, was the top influencer for CES 2014. Rounding out the group as the top keynote speaker was Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.

"One of the things this report shows is that not being there does ultimately impact a brand's place as part of the CES conversations," said Jeni Chapman, Managing Director, Gorkana Group US. "Apple, for example, dropped from being the second most-talked-about brand in 2013 to ranking #5 this year, and the same three-point drop happened to Microsoft. New entrants like Audi, which leaped into becoming part of the 10 most-talked-about brands during CES, demonstrated another trend we saw this year: the larger presence of new sectors like automobile and healthcare," she added.
