Social media conversations are driving Web users' TV-viewing habits, according to a survey by Nielsen and the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing. The survey found that about 49% of women and 43% of men said they had started watching a show based on Facebook chatter, while 14% of women and 16% of men said Twitter buzz had prompted them to try out a show. "This snapshot shows social media is influential for all viewers, particularly the 18- to 34-year-olds," CTAM chief Char Beales says.
