CES Days 0 & 1 By the Numbers

CES Days 0 & 1 By the Numbers Adam Schoenfeld Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

Good news data junkies, we’re tracking the social-side of CES and have some interesting data to share!

With some strong engagement after Steve Ballmer’s Keynote address, Microsoft is leading the way in terms of interactions. But Qualcomm was the big gainer in Day 1 as excitement spread during their keynote.

Unsurprisingly, the most popular topics are OLEDs and Ultrabooks. As more announcements are made, we will be watching this closely to see if the trend changes.

When we look at the top links from the #CES stream we see that most of the sharing is centered around news and photos/videos. CNET, Mashable and Engadget lead the charge in terms of news, and Instragram, yfrog, twitpic, and twitter.com lead the way in the photo and video category.

Overall, Twitter volume is slightly higher in 2012 than 2011. This could be reflective of a variety of things (Twitter’s growth, penetration within the tech crowd) and is something we will monitor through the event.
