Do You Know How the Social Media World Reacted to the Super Bowl Ads? Want to?

Last updated 7 years ago

Did you make sure to Tweet about your favorite Super Bowl ad? If you didn't, plenty of others did this year. In fact, while most of the discussion on social media focused around the actual game, commercial discussions came in second.

According to Lauren Indvik and data released after the "big game," it was a good year for Super Bowl commercials. Discussions were more favorable regarding the ads this year but could that be because of the relatively low expectations people had regarding the game.

"According to the social media analytics tool Trendrr, Chrysler’s “Detroit/Eminem” was the most buzzed-about spot, at least on Twitter, where users cited the commercial 19,781 times during the hour it premiered. Disney’s teaser for Transformers 3 was the second most popular ad, with 18,215 tweets in the first hour. Doritos’s fan-created commercials garnered 15,800 tweets in the first hour of the game and 15,050 in the second collectively." (Mashable).
