ComScore, FM Team Up for Analytics Research

ComScore Networks has teamed up with John Battelle's Federated Media (FM) Publishing for a research and development initiative to come up with a way to measure audiences of blogs and community-driven sites. As part of the research, comScore will build a database using a customized weighting and projection system, which is intended to more accurately measure audience size and demographics that have previously been available from comScore only for larger sites.
