Social TV Originally posted April 23, 2014

If you have any presence of knowledge of any social media networks, you probably have noticed the increasing "social TV" participation. Many reality TV shows have changed their process of voting to reflect the popularity of website such as Twitter or Facebook. It isn't about calling in your vote for your favorite dancer, singer, or performer anymore. As previously discussed in a former post, social media has allowed celebrities and fans to connect through an equal form of communication.  Many networks have seen their engagement go up by use of Hashtags, and are now requiring their "stars" to do live Tweet sessions when shows air. More specifically this week with the Tweet-Along Hashtag, for example #gleealong. More than ever, people demand to know the behind the scenes right along with watching. The DVD commentary has moved from recorded to real time with social TV.
