Is There A Decline In Social Mentions?

No, just because advertisers used slightly less the hashtags this year, doesn’t mean that social media are still not a huge part of their campaigns. On the contrary, they know that users are becoming more social savvy year-by-year, which means that they are spreading the news on their own, talking about what captures their attention anyway on their social networks.

Even if you didn’t watch the Superbowl or the ads, you must have noticed a trending topic, or a hashtag right?
