MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 31, 2014) - Gigya, the Connected Consumer Management Suite, today released data showcasing the striking similarities and differences between the social media fan bases of this year's Super Bowl rivals, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.

Data for the infographic was pulled from the profiles of Facebook users who have liked the Seahawks or Broncos. This data was then analyzed using Gigya's new Consumer Insights dashboard, a groundbreaking tool that helps marketers understand and reach their audiences. The resulting insights convey the most liked TV shows, movies and more for each team's social fan base. Data was anonymized as to protect individual user identities.

Gigya was able to discern that the Denver Broncos have a high concentration of fans around the United States, from New York to California, while Seahawks fans are heavily concentrated in the Pacific Northwest. Broncos fans tend to enjoy more light-hearted, family-oriented movies like Finding Nemo and Shrek, whereas Seahawks fans are "all about that action" with favorite movies including Star Wars and Batman: The Dark Knight. Other intriguing insights featured in the infographic include:

  • Both teams' fan bases share an affinity for adult cartoons like Family Guy, South Park and The Simpsons
