With the overflow of viral videos and branded digital stunts, it is becoming more and more difficult for anyone to make a splash in the social market. The goviral team have released the top 100 brands in branded content for 2012, highlighting the companies and brands that are leading the way with their social content.

The first goviral Social Video Equity Report evaluated these brands based on their volume, total views and engagement for content uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. Goviral then weighed the quality, purpose, innovation and audience relevance, before calculating the final social video equity score. From the report:

"The results of goviral's Social Video Equity Report prove that when it comes to branded content, fortune favors the brave", said Mads Holmen, Planning Director, goviral. "Brands like Red Bull, Old Spice and Nike are risk-takers, constantly disrupting what's expected to spark agenda-setting conversation. An effective social video strategy can elevate a brand beyond the product, creating an experience consumers really want to part of."
