Comscore is partnering with Snap to integrate Snapchat Discover traffic into its digital audience measurement products.

The integration will provide numbers on audiences viewing a publisher's content on Snapchat and traffic from the publisher's own entities, a view of time spent consuming content and total audience demographics.

"We are committed to helping our partners and advertisers have a better understanding of their audience in order to build long-term, sustainable business models," said Nick Bell, vice president of content at Snap, in a statement. "Our integration with Comscore is another important step in our continued progress towards establishing valuable measurement practices."
