FAQs

Q: Why should a publisher use Showt, instead of simply inserting their own poll?

A: Standard online polls run independently by individual publishers only capture the input from that publication’s readership whereas Showt aggregates results across all participating publishers and countries. In this way, Showt allows people all over the world to express their opinions and be heard.

Q: What is the unique proposition that Showt offers?

A: The Showt platform is a near real-time, 24/7 view of public opinion that empowers everyone to express themselves as often as they like, and have their views be heard and counted.

Q: Do Showters have to register with Showt to participate?

A: No.

Q: Does the publisher have to include an Ad Unit Showt widgets?

A: No, inclusion of the ad unit is optional at the discretion of the publisher. Showt Limited reserves the right to promote download of Showt apps through the widget.

Q: How does Showt prevent people from Showting more than once?

A: Showt actively encourages people to express themselves, and allows multiple Showts. Showt is a near real-time platform for public expression of sentiment, not a traditional one vote per person platform. If someone is a fervent supporter or opponent of one of the Showtees they can Showt multiple times -- either repeating their Showt or switching from a Yes to a No, or vice versa -- as often as every three minutes. Repeated Showting becomes a reflection of the strength of their feeling and it also recognizes that their sentiment might change from one moment to the next. For example, if someone is viewing a candidate on television making a speech the viewer might agree with a point made at a particular time in the speech, but disagree with another point made minutes later. Showt gives the Showter the flexibility to adjust to the public statements, disclosures, news stories about or actions of the candidate.

Q: How does Showt prevent gaming of the voting process?

A: Showt makes a CAPTCHA technology available and other means to prevent gaming and constantly works to ensure our systems are protected.  For security reasons we do not disclose the methods and practices that we apply.

Q: How is Showting different from a traditional poll conducted by professional polling companies that reach out to a few thousand respondents chosen at random?

A: Traditional polls and surveys sample a small portion of the public to arrive at a snapshot of opinion. Because of their expense, such polls and surveys are done infrequently. Showt allows all the people of the world a chance to participate at any time to express their view on anyone or anything, anywhere on a minute-by-minute basis. This provides a much richer source of data about changes in sentiment.

Q: Why is Showt superior to the online polls that are presented intermittently by publishers?

A: Online polls are never coordinated between publishers so their results are not aggregated. Showt provides a unique, continuous, global, 24/7, aggregated measure of sentiment towards its Showtees.

Q: What is a ShowtBack and who writes them?

A: A ShowtBack is a message created by a Showtee (for example, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, or their communications staff) that is delivered to the Showter immediately after they Showt. Showtees may prepare separate ShowtBacks for Yes and No and update them as they wish.

Q: Will ShowtBacks change over time?

A: Showtees are encouraged to refresh their ShowtBacks frequently.

Q: What type of data is collected via the widgets?

A: Please refer to our privacy and cookies policy

Q: What opportunities are there to cooperate with Showt after Clinton-Trump Showt or Brexit?

A: Showt has started to offer Publishers  additional widgets that can be defined by publishers themselves, giving them the opportunity to make much of their news, sports and entertainment content interactive.

Most of the World Showts Yes to Hillary Clinton with Russia, Central Asia and the Balkans in favor of Donald Trump

SHOWT·Monday, 7th November 2016

On the eve of the US Presidential election, it appears that the consensus of citizens throughout the world is that a Hillary Clinton Presidency is the favored outcome on November 8. This is the result of a historic global sentiment poll conducted on almost 100 leading news sites around the world by Showt (pronounced “Shout”) Limited, creator of the world’s first Instant Global Voting platform, where everyone can express their positive or negative opinion about nearly anyone or anything.

The total global ShowtCount results since Showting began in early September show 71% Yes Showts for Hillary Clinton and 43% Yes Showts for Donald Trump. This pro-Clinton sentiment has strengthened in the past 24 hours with 75% Yes Showts for Clinton as compared with 37% Yes Showts for Trump.

Michael March, Showt Co-Founder and CEO said, “The election of the US President has a potential impact on everyone on the planet. Showt provided, for the first time ever, a way for people from every country in the world to participate in this historic election and have their voices heard.”

Mr. March continued, “Through Clinton-Trump Showt we intend to build awareness of the full Showt experience available on our apps and at Showt.com where people express a simple Yes or No opinion about celebrities, athletes and other public figures, brands, organizations, pretty much everyone and everything they care about in their lives, and receive a ShowtBack reply to their Yes or No Showt.”

Russia and Balkans Trends: With people in over 210 countries Showting both Yes and No for the candidates, Showt has been able to identify geographic trends in their respective popularity. Notably, the Balkan states: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia, have all shown strong support for Trump. Perhaps not surprising is the significantly positive view of Trump amongst Russian internet users who have Showted Yes 83% of the time, with 81% Showting No for Clinton.

European (excluding the Balkans) Trends: Much of the rest of Europe, however, has expressed pro-Clinton sentiment. The prospective first female US President has strong support in Albania (83% Yes Showts), Belgium (78%), Ukraine (77%), Ireland (75%), Spain (72%), Malta (70%) and the UK (65%). Several countries, as appears to be the case in official polling in the US, appear divided in their views on the two candidates, with a less than 5% difference in Yes Showts for Clinton and Trump in France, Germany, Austria, Cyprus and several other nations.

Latin America Trends: Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite in all Latin American countries, except Bolivia and Suriname. There is a greater than 25% difference in Yes Showting in favor of Clinton in most of these countries, including Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Brazil has a 16% pro-Clinton spread in Yes Showt sentiment, with Chileans favoring Clinton by only 4%.

Perhaps not surprising given Trump’s statements about Mexican immigrants and his position that he will build a strong wall on the US-Mexican border that Mexico will pay for, Mexicans are Showting 96% Yes for Clinton and 90% No for Trump.

On the other side of the US border, however, the Canadians are divided much like their US counterparts, with Clinton receiving 59% Yes Showts to Trump’s 58%.

Africa Trends: Clinton is also leading in Yes Showts in most African countries, with the notable exceptions of Egypt (57% Yes Showts for Trump, 48% for Clinton), Liberia (80% Yes Showts for Trump, 36% for Clinton) and South Africa (72% Yes Showts for Trump, 38% for Clinton).

Asia Trends: The sentiment is mixed in Asia, with strong support for Clinton in Afghanistan, Indonesia, India, South Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan and Thailand, with equally strong Trump support in the Philippines, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka.

Oceania Trends: Showters in both Australia and New Zealand favor Clinton, with Australia giving her 63% Yes Showts to 56% for Trump, and New Zealand more heavily favoring Clinton, Showting 68% Yes to her and 48% Yes to Trump. South Pacific Islanders are also generally more supportive of Clinton.
