Raise your hand if you have ever been watching a television show, and someone on social media ruined the ending for you! Me! While content for blogs is key, you have to find the correct content so that it will keep your followers coming back again and again.
Television and social media now go hand and hand, like all other businesses, social media is the way to stay afloat and on top of your game. Not only can you follow a television show through ways of social media accounts, but now you can even follow the characters themselves. The only issue is, spoilers are everywhere! This again comes down to content, you want to boast your show, but you don’t want it to turn people away. Alternatives to posting about just recent episodes that have been successful include character interviews, asking questions of the audience and of course, possible sneak previews. “More isn’t necessarily better when it comes to content. Produce high quality content to share on social media – the kind of content that provides value to your customers” (Totka, 2016). While content is key, so is the correct consistency. A lot of posts does not mean it is the content people want to see – this is the key to driving success, determining what content is the right content to have followers return.
As many of you may be aware, the newest season of Game of Thrones is currently airing and if you happen to be busy on a Sunday night, it is most likely you won’t be able to hide from spoilers if you even glimpse at social media. This is to be expected, people post relevant pop culture on social media and this may be the thee most viewed show in the country. It’s hard not to look! Leslie Jones has a small clip called “Game of Jones” in which she humorously comments on the most recent episode as she watches. While it is absolutely hilarious, don’t watch if you haven’t seen the episode! This is just one example of content though, it was something humorous and different – it made me go check out their platform AND made me want to return!
Social media was actually what started me up on watching the show, I just wanted to know what all the rage was about and now I am hooked! If you want to get in on the action (which I highly suggest) be weary of social media! No matter what – some page you follow will find a way to leak a detail! Social media television etiquette rarely exist, so go on and watch but keep your eyes peeled for spoilers!
