12 Million Minutes: Brand Engagement For Samsung Using Angry Birds

One of our pet stats here at Statspotting has been Angry Birds. We have spotted how Angry Birds users can create wikipedia and other Angry Birds stats. We spotted this today:

“Media communications agency Starcom took an interesting and innovative approach with the recent global launch of the Samsung Galaxy SII by creating an exclusive level of the super-popular mobile game Angry Birds.

Starcom collaborated with Rovio to create the Galaxy SII level, with Samsung getting unrestricted access to the beloved Angry Birds characters. Rather than just a badged level, Starcom worked with Rovio and Enrich Mobile to offer a much more compelling, integrated experience and incidentally, the first ever Angry Birds level to be played in zero gravity.

The Angry Birds characters were used in mobile rich media units and video strategically placed throughout the Angry Birds mobile game. Samsung ran more than 14,000,000 rich media impressions within the Angry Birds game mainly in Europe, Asia and Australia, driving users through to a Samsung-owned mobile landing page, which acted as the hub of the campaign.”

Angry Birds Statistics: 200,000 Years of Angry Birds Have Been Played!

We had spotted some stats on Angry Birds before including an Angry Birds Wikipedia comparison – we spotted this today:

“Mobile gaming firm Rovio said on Wednesday that its hit game Angry Birds had reached a record 500 million downloads in less than two years since its launch.

In addition, Rovio also announced some other interesting figures. At 100 million downloads, 44 billion stars were collected, and at 210 million downloads, over 200 000 years of Angry Birds have been played.

Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka also said that 500 million downloads is more than any other mobile game has reached, ever. It has also taken them less than 2 years to achieve this milestone. ”

200000 Years of Angry Birds have been played. Think about that for a second.

Angry Birds Has Been Downloaded 250 Million Times

We have written about how many times Angry Birds has been downloaded before. We have also written about other Angry Birds statistics. We spotted this today:

“Already the game has been downloaded 250 million times, up from 100 million only three months ago. Every month 50 million play the game. Some days, players spend a combined 200 million minutes pelting pigs with their iPhones, iPads, Android phones and PCs. The game costs 99 cents ($4.99 on the iPad) to download and comes in 40 versions with 300 levels, most of which are free. It is the biggest-selling paid app ever and still number one in 80 countries. It sells character downloads in the game for a buck or two, plus millions of stuffed toys, T-shirts and flip-flops. It now enjoys the dubious honor of being the third most knocked-off brand in China, trailing only Disney ( DIS – news – people ) and Sanrio’s Hello Kitty.”

Angry Birds Statistics: More Than 200 Million Downloads So Far

We have written about Angry Birds Statistics before. Today we spotted this:

“Angry Birds downloads have topped 200 million. To put that in perspective, another app store darling Foursquare recently reached 10 million downloads.

Of course, while the iPad and iPhone are responsible for much of Angry Birds’ success, the franchise has moved well beyond it. It has already hit five million Web downloads after last week’s Chrome announcement.”

Angry Birds, Talking Tom Cat And 42 Million

Imagine 41 Million Downloads in less than Six Months. That more or less is the number of times that all the ‘Talking Friends’ apps have managed to get downloaded across iOS and Android. TC had this report:

Outfit7, the company behind the ‘Talking Friends’ series of apps for iOS and Android, says it has reached 41 million downloads in less than six months since the first app was released. The download rate is accelerating at 10 million a month and the company’s CEO, Andrej Nabergoj, tells me they expect to hit 100 million downloads by the second quarter of 2011.

For your comparison: the oft-hyped Angry Birds apps have been downloaded roughly 42 million times to date – 12 million paid, 30 million free apps – only it took Rovio twice as long than it took Outfit7.

These are huge, huge numbers. (We were going to compare this to Harry Potter book sales but obviously that would not be a fair comparison – we need something that is free., and takes just as much time as using these apps)

Angry Bird Users Can Create Wikipedia in 30 Days

If everyone playing Angry Bird starts working on putting together some knowledge about the world, they can create a complete wikipedia in 30 days. Yes, thats right. The COMPLETE WIKIPEDIA in 30 days.

The total number of hours consumed by Angry Birds players world-wide is roughly 200 million minutes a DAY, which translates into 1.2 billion hours a year. To compare, all person-hours spent creating and updating Wikipedia totals about 100 million hours over the entire life span of Wikipedia (Neiman Journalism Lab).

We have written about Angry Bird Statistics before. But this comparison is just mind blowing.
