Social TV - The Superbowl has incorporated social TV including live hashtags on commercials, livestreaming integration, athlete / commentator tweets and more, to make the Superbowl one of last year top tweeted live events. We'll discuss the latest in how the Superbowl uses social TV tools.
Viral Ads: Last year's Kid Vader and Matthew Broderick's Day Off Superbowl ads that were released online went viral before the show, and even created increased chatter when they aired live during the Superbowl. We'll discuss how to make Superbowl ads go viral, starting with really great content, and then tagging, seeding, paid vs. earned distribution.
Our scheduled speakers include:
