Soft launched in Q1 2012, Metan Development Group (Metan) has unveiled a proprietary ranking system for Western celebrities in China, the “Metan Meter,” created as a guideline to measure the popularity of Western celebrities in China. The Metan Meter analyzes China’s top social and digital networks and applies a scoring system based on a proprietary statistical formula and weighted measurement techniques to determine the relative order of popularity.
Metan President/CEO Larry Namer comments, “We first started Metan Meter as a guideline for our weekly entertainment news show “Hello! Hollywood” but quickly discovered the relevance and value of our data and analyses, as China expenditures in the media and entertainment spheres continue to rise in importance.”
Film or television companies in China seeking to make a film or show that incorporates Western celebrities can benefit from the Metan Meter in making their casting decisions. Global brands can consult the Metan Meter when making decisions on celebrity endorsement choices for their advertising campaigns.
Each month, Metan Meter will publish a new ranking board, listing the top male and female Western celebrities. The board will also include ranking comparisons from the previous month. For more information regarding Metan Meter, email email@example.com
