The Harris Buzz Report is conducted monthly and establishes the levels of buzz surrounding the latest news and product releases within technology, telecoms, media and entertainment. Using three key Buzz metrics, each report examines; the level of awareness and familiarity with each product release or news story, the degree of discussion amongst peers and the scale of excitement it generates.

Copies of the latest reports are available below. To access all previous reports please visit the Reports section of this website.
