It has been estimated that the 25 main sponsors of the London 2012 Olympics will have spent more than £2 billion ($3.2bn) this year on marketing initiatives to ‘activate’ their rights.

In what is claimed to have been the first true social Olympics (or ‘socialympics’), did these brands get the maximum return on their social media investment?

To find out, Sociagility set up a tracking study – the longest and most comprehensive of its kind – comparing the social media performance of the main 25 sponsors, using our PRINT™ methodology.
