HLN Social Index
The HLN Social Index is a home-grown project we are really proud of. It’s a real-time, all-screens data visualization that ranks the top trends in conversation across social networks (currently accounting for Facebook, Twitter & Google, with more sources coming soon).
The Social Index is powered by HLN’s proprietary trending algorithm, together with editorial context that explains what’s behind the trend. With updates every hour, we think it’s your guide to never missing out on what the Internet is talking about, ever again.
This project is a great example of HLN’s social- and digital-first DNA. HLN TV started using the Social Index on air in December 2014. Today, if you tune in on a weekday between 1:30-2pm, you’ll see a 30 minute segment of The Daily Share that’s entirely powered by the Social Index. You can of course also check in with the Social Index any time on HLNtv.com, and even embed it on your own site.
