Super Bowl Viewers 3X More Likely to Engage via 2nd Screen [Infographic]

When we began laying the groundwork for our new monthly research efforts where we survey and release findings on timely, [hopefully] relevant topics each month, our home-town team has had such an amazing season we just couldn’t resist looking to the Big Game for our first project.

  • 40% of viewers plan to also use a 2nd device to follow the game – 23% plan to check stats; 17% plan to follow on social media.

Without further ado, it is indeed our great pleasure to introduce the findings of our ‘2014 Super Bowl Survey on technology, social media and consumer spending plans for the Big Game – an Infographic.’
