'These tools do not provide marketers with any data about their competitors' fan bases,' the spokesperson, added.

According to the paper, the tool could help companies find out which TV shows their fans watch, which brands they buy and which bands they listen to, that would further help the firms to decide which TV show to advertise on or which song to use in a commercial.
