The report is based on a year of monitoring online conversations on the social web, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr. In overall, luxury brands performed well on the index as six of the top 20 brands generating online conversations were Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Burberry, Tiffany, Prada, and Coach. This is especially interesting as it shows that consumers’ conversations about an aspirational purchase contribute to positive brand image and reputation.
