Such editorial content was then broadcasted live on-air and published by M6’s Community Managers on its various social media accounts.

« VIGIGLOBE technology has given us access to real-time analytics, both quantitative as well as qualitative, on what was being said on Twitter in French language about each match and the 23 players of each contesting team. Those analytics were used to enrich the post-match debates during our TV shows as well as on social networks. » explains Vincent Regnier, M6’s News Director, in charge of the Euro2016 for the broadcaster.
