In combining quantitative and qualitative research methods, our data analysts project that 2014 could be one of the most active years for meme activity yet. Our Harlem Shake program set site-wide records in 2013, but look at what we're projecting for just one of our 2014 #newtrends, "Clocking":
Since this project began in 2005, we've been closely tracking it's impact on both viewership and the number of meme videos uploaded by our production teams. As you can see, the impact of this program has skyrocketed the last few years, with viewership spikes increasing as high as 64%. We're really pleased to be expanding it in 2014!
