QuestionPro, Inc., an online survey software provider, announced the results of its 2014 Super Bowl survey. The company surveyed Americans about their technology and social media plans for viewing the upcoming game. The results showed that 20% of respondents plan to stream the Super Bowl live via their computers, tablets or smartphones. This indicates a growth of over 1,000% from last year, when only 1.8% of viewers live-streamed.1
Another emerging trend is the use of the ‘2nd screen,’ such as a tablet or smartphone, to supplement viewing. Results show that viewers who plan to use a 2nd screen while watching the game are significantly more likely to engage with an advertiser’s brand. Those viewers planning to use a 2nd screen report being 3 times more likely to engage with an advertiser’s brand on social media and are more than twice as likely to visit an advertiser’s website and purchase a product.
