This particular topic of the week is for PRCA 3334.

Many TV shows are using social media to connect with their fans. Often, hashtags for the program can be found in the lower corner of the screen. I have also watched programs which touted their stars were live tweeting during the program. Recently Media Post Publications noted the CW program “The Originals” as a show leading new (or freshmen) dramas in its use of social media.

What are your thoughts regarding TV shows using social media (mostly Twitter, and sometimes Facebook) to connect with their fans? Is this something you engage in? Have you ever live tweeted during a show (perhaps with your friends)? Why/why not? Have you ever tweeted a celebrity and received a response? What celebrities do you follow on social media (any/all platforms)?


Remember, you must post your response on your blog.
