Seevibes, a Canadian website which measures the social TV audience, gave some insight into the experience of viewers through Facebook and Twitter. We thought this might be interesting to some, and most especially to those who take part in fan interaction(s) with True Blood on Facebook and Twitter.
Which show (True Blood or The Vampire Diaries) is more popular with their audience – either by engaging with their fans and/or the fans talking about the show and their characters in a social setting?
The infographic shows The Vampire Diaries on social media (especially on Facebook), beats True Blood by a landslide with over 61%, while True Blood does better on Twitter with 89%, but when stacked up against each other True Blood falls far behind The Vampire Diaries overall in social media.
Based from those results, they took posts and tweets where fans call one of these vampires “sexy” or “hot” and shared those results in the infograhic below. (Eric has 32%, while Bill has only 7%! Hehe)
These results were taken during the first 5 episodes of their most recent seasons.
Check out the infographic below.
What all of this boils down to is this…True Blood and Truebies are running far behind The Vampire Diaries and their fans in many social aspects. Most Truebies think Eric is “sexy” and “hot”, but he’s not talked about as often as Damon is. WTF? How could we lose to Damon on this one?
I say we start talking about Eric and True Blood even more than we already do…and the powers that be over at True Blood need to pay attention too. They should interact more with us Truebies and it would be even better if the actors on the show did the same (especially on Facebook). I know many fans get excited when one of the stars replies back to them and tell other fans all about it!
Sooooo…what do you think? Share your thoughts below!
