57% of Super Bowl Ads Feature Hashtags; Facebook Tops with 5 Mnetions

The rate had reached 50% last year. But this year it has climbed to a record-breaking 57%. Hashtags have climbed a monumental ladder to become the major clip-on article of cyberspace for Super Bowl ads. With Twitter and Facebook vying with each other for the top spot, hashtags are the name of the game. 

This year most of the social sites all featured hashtags. Therefore, Twitter no longer has a monopoly on these special affixations. And whereas Facebook was ahead of Twitter; YouTube and Shazam were behind it. 

Hyundai and Subway both were way up there on the top in this regard. T-Mobile and RadioShack were two other examples of hashtag-heavy advertisers. But the overall winners were the URLs. They beat the rest hands down. As for the running order of the ads…they ranged from the numero unos to those left for the end. 

Bud Light, Doritos and Chevy were among the first few champion advertisers. M&M, Coke and Jeep figured somewhere in the middle of the competition. And as for the back benchers, they consisted of Butterfinger, Microsoft and Jaguar. 

Hashtags are the best means of drumming up support for a product or service. The popularity ratings just skyrocket when hashtags are mentioned in accompaniment with the ads. They are a social media tool par excellence. In fact, they may be compared to the discovery of hyperspace within the labyrinthine folds of the Internet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
