During Big Boulder this year, Maya Harris from GetGlue talked about the community on GetGlue and how they banded together to keep the TV show Nikita on the air when it was on the verge of being cancelled. Maya also showed the strong correlation between the volume of GetGlue check-ins and Nielsen ratings for a show like “The Walking Dead.” With examples like these, we’re incredibly excited about the insights our customers will develop now that they have access to the full firehose of check-ins and comments from GetGlue.
