USA Today Ad Meter for Super Bowl 2012 launched

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

The USA Today and Facebook Super Bowl Ad Meter for 2012 has launched. The USA Today Ad Meter is the gold standard for Super Bowl Ad rankings. The ranking is seen as make or break for advertising agencies since years.
This year the USA Today Admeter will be different though. USA Today has so far just used a small panel of viewers to determine the best Super Bowl ads. This year USA Today partnered with Facebook and you are in control of the ranking.

USA Today is supposed to still do their traditional panel based ranking as well according to Adage. AdAge published yesterday an article that is very critical about the USA Today Ad Meter. Michael Learmonth makes the case that the USA Today Ad Meter broke Super Bowl Advertising.

Doritos is again using the USA Today Ad Meter to determine the million Dollar payouts. If the new Facebook enabled voting is a good thing for the Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ads remains to be seen.

The competition, especially from car Super Bowl advertisers is really strong this year. The Car ads are also telling longer stories that might resonate more with people engaged in social networks.

I wonder if USA Today will release the panel ranking as well. It would be interesting to see the difference between the public vote and the panel selection.
