Muppets BuzzFeed quiz

Muppets BuzzFeed quiz


When I was asked, on Friday, for a list of “cool social media campaigns”, the campaigns / stunts / content below were front-of-my-mind.

a) Quizzes.
8 of @BuzzFeed’s 10 biggest stories on Facebook last month were interactive quizzes.

Single page quizzes – which character are you etc… are very popular – get lots of social shares:

b) Physically hijack a big event to attract social media attention:
Brit Awards stunt by Paddy Power leaves Daft Punk lookalikes looking plain daft

Use Twitter to hijack the attention around a big event – “real time”
(“Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back?”) was a responsive-marketing coup de grâce, with 75,000 retweets and more than 40,000 favorites by Monday morning.

e) Create a moving video – 10 million shares

f) Remix videos, to inappropriate soundtracks:
Meshuggah Mix of The Wolf of Wall Street

g) Facebook / webcam app – put viewers into the show:
