Branded TV Content Through Social Media MixingDigital – Israeli Digital Outreach Russell Goldsmith, markettiers4dc September 2012 email@example.com / @russgoldsmith
The ‘Social Games’• Possibly no better example of how people are using twitter whilst watching live TV that the Olympics and Paralympics• From the opening ceremony, where @dannyboylefilm grew to 100s of thousands of followers in a couple of hours (only for it to be just a fan) and Sir Tim Berners-Lee tweeting from the event, throughout the rest of the games, Twitter and Facebook was a key part of the shared viewing experience
#spoileralert• But twitter can also be a nightmare for some programmes and the death of Sky+!• How many of us intend to watch something after it was broadcast, only to check our social media feed to find someone who has revealed whodunit!• Even the stars of the show have ruined the viewing experience for viewers – fans of Jessie J were furious after she revealed who she had picked for the semi-final of ‘The Voice’ two hours before the show aired.
SO HOW CAN BRANDS USEBROADCAST & SOCIAL MEDIATO THEIR ADVANTAGE

Live branded video contentin Facebook• Streaming of live events on a Facebook tab or application may not be new ... – Example: Facebook’s first ever UK live concert produced for the Carphone Warehouse with Eliza Doolittle – Increase likes on the page by over 10% from 50,000 to over 56,000 in half hour• ... but reaching the audience directly through their own newsfeed via your timeline is crucial
Challenge of the timeline• Updates only reach 17% of ‘likes’ on average (EdgeRank Jan 2012) unless more engaged through comments, likes, shares etc• Broadcasting live into the timeline and into the newsfeeds of those who have liked your page improves engagement, enabling them to watch the content without leaving their Facebook page, sharing it with their friends and helping the viral spread.• Need to still support it with targeted advertising and promoted tweets
