For marketers, the London Olympics is a huge social media event. During these Olympic Games there will be over 900 million Facebook users and roughly 6 million Twitter followers. As you know, social media is an extremely powerful tool to connect with viewers. For companies or corporate sponsors this is a major opportunity to advertise their brand. Sponsors will spend millions of dollars on these Olympic Games.
More than 80% of adults in the U.S. alone go online to use some form of social media. This has increased over 20% in the past few years. Not everyone is home to watch the ongoing broadcast of the Olympics. What is a person to do if they want to view or read about specific events they have missed? Voila, social media to the rescue!
NBC is the social media platform for this year’s Olympics. Initially it’s the athletes who create the Olympic buzz via Facebook, Twitter, etc., but it will be NBC that will take it to the next level by broadcasting it to the world. NBC has created an “NBC Olympics” page on Facebook for viewers to have access to exclusive Olympics-related topics that will keep you informed on the latest and top stories.
