The last Fringe Twitter and GetGlue campaign, sponsored by Fringenuity on April 13th was quite successful.
Thanks to Fox Broadcasting's help, the entire episode aired with the Fringenuity hash tag "AcrossTheUniverse" on the screen instead of #Fringe, for the fourth time in the show's history!
There are lots of awesome statistics that emerged from this event, read more here.
The group, Fringenuity, hosts the Friday night Twitter/GetGlue campaigns.
Fringe Television is proud to support Fringenuity's efforts to promote "Fringe" in as many social media venues as possible, and asks for your help.
Tomorrow night we want to continue our social media domination, and the Fringedom wants to try to get the hash tag #FightTheFuture to trend on Twitter starting at 8PM Eastern.
That's 1 hour before the new episode airs, and then again at 8PM Pacific time.
Why keep tweeting? Because we know that ratings isn't just about Nielsen boxes anymore. TV networks and their contractors pay attention to which TV shows are 'socially-active' and our show Fringe is very socially-active on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and other venues.
Why continue this effort? Last Friday's event catapaulted Fringe in multiple social media platforms, and we need to keep Fringe visible in these platforms in the weeks ahead, especially with the ongoing FOX/Warner Brothers negotiaions for a Season 5.
Please consider joining in tomorrow night at 8PM Eastern and 8PM Pacific to support your favorite show by signing into Twitter and using the #FightTheFuture hash tag.
If you are not familiar with Twitter, you can create an new account rather painlessly at http://www.twitter.com/.
For more information on this week's special Fringe Twitter event visit the Fringenuity website here.
You can also adopt a special icon from at least 23 designs(!), and/or 7 lovely banners for this event by clicking here.
An important reminder: Please do not tweet with the #FightTheFuture hash tag until 8PM Eastern, to increase the likelihood of trending! And volume helps, so tweet slowly, and tweet often after the start time Friday night! Also, retweet tweets that you like, that have the # hash tag.
Let's dominate Twitter Friday night, and make our hash tag and our show trend worldwide! Again!
***ButWait! There's more!***
Another social network platform that needs our attention on Friday nights is GetGlue.com.
If you are not familiar with getglue.com it is a very clever advertising site married to social networking.
GetGlue merges fans with their interests, and their interests' sponsors.
If you have a GetGlue account you can "check-in" to Fringe. The shows that get the most check-ins are highly visible to the networks and the show's sponsors.
It is recommended you start checking into GetGlue closer to the start time of Fringe to increase the chance of trending there. For the last several Friday nights we made Fringe the #1 checked in show on GetGlue!
Fringenuity is asking that this Friday, your first check-in to one of Fringe's sponsors on GetGlue, ie. Nissan Leaf(since this is Earth Week), and thank them for supporting Fringe. Think it doesn't make a difference? Guess again.
For the last few weeks, due to our GetClue check-ins, the Nissan Leaf was one of the most checked-in sponsors on the site.
Let’s make it a combined effort to not only check-in to the show, but to also check-in to the show’s advertisers and comment, “Thank You for your support of Fringe! @FringeOnFox”
If you don’t have a GetGlue account, make one at http://www.getglue.com/.
You can post your check-ins to Twitter and/or Facebook.
The more activity, the better, as this may also get other Fringies involved in the GetGlue check-ins.
GetGlue also has convenient mobile phone aps for iphone, Android, and Blackberry.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Please, enjoy the new episode tomorrow night, and support high visibility of your show by tweeting on Twitter with the special hash tag, and checking into Fringe at GetGlue and thanking at least 1 of Friday night's many sponsors. Your efforts will not go unrewarded, and may help increase our chances of getting a Season 5.
It would be especially awesome for all of you reading this to get involved in these 2 campaigns, as both executive producers, Joel Wyman & Jeff Pinkner, will be LIVE tweeting during both airings tomorrow night, as well as Joshua Jackson, who will be LIVE tweeting during the west coast airing. Let's show these 3 important people via social media, our Fringe love.
Fringedom, the time is now! If you want your Season 5, Watch "Letters Of Transit" LIVE tomorrow night, and join in this Twitter/GetGlue event!
Make sure FOX Broadcasting and the Fringe sponsors know that you want another season of FRINGE!!
