Sprout Social Index: the entertainment industry’s rapid growth continues

Sprout-Social-620x364Social monitoring company Sprout recently released the Sprout Social Index, which “looks at channel growth, brand responsiveness, and consumer behavior across more than 160 million inbound messages across 20,000 brand profiles and fan pages” with the goal to better equip brands with actionable insight about people’s social habits and o­ffer opportunities to create stronger, longer-lasting customer relationships.” The index notes the impressive growth of both Facebook and Twitter, and more, how brands are using social media to engage with consumers. What’s impressive to us at Lost Remote, is just how much users interact with entertainment brands.

Here are some highlights that apply to the social TV industry:
