Viacom and Mass Relevance Partner to Launch EchoGraph, Exclusive Social Media Measurement Platform for Advertisers
|By Business Wire

Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA) and Mass Relevance today announced a
partnership to launch EchoGraph, a social media measurement platform
that will track and analyze social activity for advertisers. Throughout
the 2014 Upfront season, Mass Relevance, which recently merged with
Spredfast, will work exclusively with Viacom to measure earned media
generated by Viacom client campaigns across Twitter, Facebook,
Instagram, Tumblr, Vine, Google+ and YouTube in real time. With
EchoGraph, Viacom will provide clients with comprehensive data and
analysis regarding reach, social activity, types of engagement, hashtag
popularity, influencers and more.
The EchoGraph social analytics platform will support Viacom Echo, a
client-service offering through which Viacom
Velocity creates custom content to deliver measured earned media for
advertisers. Echo extends an advertiser’s message beyond Viacom’s owned
and operated linear, digital and mobile screens and into the social
ecosystem, including the company’s Twitter Amplify and Tumblr
“We’ve cracked the code on how to connect advertisers to the enormous
social activity around our networks but, until now, the missing piece
was comprehensive measurement,” said Jeff Lucas, Head of Sales, Music
and Entertainment, Viacom Media Networks. “Through EchoGraph, we can
offer clients true accountability and tell the full story of how our
custom campaigns carry their brand messages across the social sphere.”
"We have a long history of working alongside this innovative company to
help them push the boundaries of the TV and entertainment industry,”
said Jesse Redniss, Chief Strategy Officer, Mass Relevance. “Viacom has
always taken a lean forward strategy to define the marketplace, not just
move it. The EchoGraph project is a groundbreaking approach in
identifying the core value of social TV for their brand partners."
Viacom and Mass Relevance have partnered previously to track and measure
social integrations for programming and advertiser campaigns including
MTV’s MTV Video Music Awards, MTV Movie Awards and Catfish:
The TV Show. Mass Relevance is the only certified partner for both
Twitter and Facebook and the company has the ability to curate content
streams from a broad range of social platforms.
Viacom is home to premier global media brands that create compelling
television programs, motion pictures, short-form video, apps, games,
consumer products, social media and other entertainment content for
audiences in more than 160 countries and territories. Viacom's media
networks, including MTV, VH1, CMT, Logo, BET, CENTRIC, Nickelodeon, Nick
Jr., TeenNick, Nicktoons, Nick at Nite, Comedy Central, TV Land, SPIKE,
Tr3s, Paramount Channel and VIVA, reach approximately 700 million

is a major global producer and distributor of filmed entertainment.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
