It’s cocktail hour here at #GivingTuesday UK HQ and lots of visitors are starting to come in to celebrate the success of the 1st edition of #GivingTuesday in the UK.
A final quick look at social media stats shows how successful the event is in terms of social media popularity.
49% share of voice today, when compared with #Blackfriday and #Cybermonday – The figure is already impressive on its own, but even more so if we take into account that the #GivingTuesday organisers did not do any promoted tweets and that a lot of the commercial initiatives for the other days often span multiple days and are still in full force.
120 million potential impressions, which doubles the total UK population.
In the next few days we’ll follow up with more detailed analytics on the impact #GivingTuesday had in the UK and globally, how it compared to #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, as well as insights into the profiles of Twitter users who joined the conversation.
For now, we’ll be joining the #GivingTuesday UK team for a well deserved cocktail!
