Twitter and Comedy Central have announced that they are collaborating to bring us the first ever Social Media #ComedyFest. According to CBS Philly, starting this week comedians will be tweeting jokes and making videos using the Vine app for 5 days.
Bebo, a hugely popular social networking website for the people in the UK, has partnered with several traditional media sources, including BBC and CBS.
It will be used primarily as a marketing platform for traditional broadcasters to help reconnect with Bebo’s 40 million users, specifically the so-called “lost TV generation” of 13 to 24-year-olds who make up the social networking site’s core audience. Their goal is to fill the void of how to deliver on-demand programming via internet and mobile devices.
