2015 MTV VMAs: "The Millennial Superbowl"
2015 MTV Video Music Awards was the most tweeted about non-superbowl program since October 2011, generating over 21.4 million tweets. Telescope powered all the voting for the show, including the live “Artist to Watch” award. In the end Fetty Wap’s fans came out on top scoring him the most coveted moon man of the night.
Telescope and Facebook help Luke Bryan "Kick the Dust Up!"
In another partnership with Facebook, we powered an industry first campaign for country star, Luke Bryan. As part of a huge social campaign for his latest album release, Kill the Lights, we created a new Facebook tool that he could use to sign digital autographs with custom fan messages using our social autograph application. Fans had just 24 hours to buy a copy of his new album at LukeBryanSigning.com and login and comment on his Facebook page. In return, Bryan personally signed every album cover sold — all 2,954 of them — and posted reply messages to fan’s comments on Facebook. During the campaign, his Facebook page received over 4,700 comments and garnered over 36,000 likes. As always Luke continues to “Kick the Dust Up”!
Fox News Live Debate
Have you ever wanted to ask Presidential candidates your own questions during a live debate? In partnership with Facebook, Telescope made this a reality during the first Republican Presidential Debate. Fox News utilized our uploader product where users submitted text, picture or video questions to the candidates. Using our Connect Live social moderation tool, Fox News reviewed and selected questions which were visualized in real-time on-air. A full montage of Facebook profile pictures of users who submitted questions was displayed during the live debate. This campaign was a huge success, garnering over 40,000 questions and 6 million views of the content submitted.
Lights, camera, action… Telescope has recently been working on Project Greenlight with Adaptive Studios, HBO and Facebook, creating a truly immersive video experience. We developed some new interactive video solutions and it was a great opportunity to showcase Facebook’s video platform.
