Data science company Parrot Analytics uses social media engagement, downloads, search results, and other interactions to measure and predict audience demand for content. Wade Payson-Denney, Parrot’s press insights analyst, told The Hustle that “Squid Game” demand has gone up 481% since its Sept. 17 launch, increasing every day.
