Using Big Data to Examine the Relationship Between Facebook Engagement and Local Newscast Ratings: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
Local TV news stations regularly post to social media, on Facebook in particular, in an effort to engage audiences, but little is known about the effect of this practice on newscast ratings. We examine the relationship between engagement on Facebook and newscast ratings using data from Shareablee and Nielsen respectively in regression analyses. We find that Facebook engagement does not cannibalize TV ratings, rather there is a clear positive relationship between the two. However, further analyses suggest that this relationship may be driven by interest in news events or other market-wide factors that result in both Facebook engagement and viewership increasing or decreasing simultaneously.

If there is one thing that generates feverish excitement in the insurance world, it is the huge potential for new sources of data to revolutionise the way the industry works ... Insurance has traditionally been based on the concept of risk pooling, in which groups of people share risks. But by using more data and segmenting risks more finely, those pools break down. Prices are more tailored to each customer.
