Shark Week ’13- Taking a Bite Out of Social MediaAugust 09, 2013
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Living rooms packed with viewing parties and DVR’s at capacity filled with gruesome yet jaws-dropping (pun intended) episodes and movies. As the Discovery Channel reminds us, it’s a bad week to be seal! You know what I’m talking about, Shark week.
Fun Fact: Shark Week has been the longest-running cable TV programming event in history, first showing in 1987.
Not only is Shark Week the longest-running TV program, but the #SharkWeek trend has taken over social media worldwide. Using ZPoints, our Zoomph Analytics feature, we have been monitoring the #SharkWeek trend on Twitter to find the top influential authors and content.
