2013 - Annual Rankings: US Insurance

Top Buzz ranked insurance company Geico received nearly two million views for its most viral commercial yet. "Hump Day" stacked up the views and sharing figures spiked every Wednesday - long known as the hump day in the middle of the working week.

Second ranked brand State Farm has doing interesting things with SeatGeek to identify up and coming bands in an attempt to transform itself into insurer of choice for 20-somethings.

Top Buzz improver AIG started the year badly but they recovered to take top spot. AIG launched their "Thank You America" campaign a week before it was announced that they were considering joining a lawsuit against the federal government, claiming that shareholders didn't receive fair compensation during the bail out. AIG decided against joining the lawsuit.
