Live Event Social Media Service
Social media is an important part of conferences and events. Streaming live feeds on social media platforms allows brands to connect with audiences and collect feedback. Followers can also participate from all over the world and feel part of an event even if they’re thousands of miles away.
Today, you’d be hard pushed to find a TV programme or sports event that doesn’t have its own Facebook page or Twitter hashtag feed streamed onto your TV screen, encouraging audiences to engage with, and comment on, the show or game; a prime example being The Million Pound Drop. Even the Royal Wedding had its own Facebook feed and live chat on ITV!
However, despite many benefits, if not planned and carried out properly, live social media streaming can be potentially fatal to brands. Unfortunately there will always be a minority of people who take pleasure in hijacking brands and posting offensive content and, in today’s social media society, something that is uploaded for seconds can quickly become viral. It’s therefore important that brands using social media during live events make sure they manage it properly and moderate content. Several solutions include pre moderation, frequent manual checks, clear upload guidelines, real-time response to comments, banning anonymous posting, spam checks and crisis PR plans.
