So what's this all about?

At the same time that a World Cup match is being played, we sample engagement across all of Chartbeat’s sites, filtered by users from each of the countries that are playing in the current match. About every five minutes during the game, we take the top twenty articles on each of our domains as judged by the number of concurrent users on that article, and then grab the average engagement time of each of those articles. This is done for each country separately. We calculate a score at the end of 90 minutes by looking at the median of these engagement times. The country with the highest median Engaged Time is the winner.
