Black Friday and Cyber Monday stats are rolling in and while “chaos” might be the best keyword to describe the weekend shopping event, television brands are driving the conversation. According to The Drum, Sony and Samsung were big winners in terms of social mentions:
During this time Sony took centre stage, closely followed by Samsung (23 per cent) with the most popular product purchased being the Samsung Galaxy. Making up the rest of the top six brands were; Panasonic (18 per cent); Amazon (14 per cent); Michael Kors (13 per cent); with Apple earning 8 per cent of the brand conversation.

Apart from that iPhone 6, which I could live without, I’m copying that Christmas list this year. Who wouldn’t want affordable healthcare and an affordable way to stream Netflix 55 inches wide?
