An inside look at Bravo’s social strategy for ‘Online Dating Rituals of the American Male’

Online-Dating-Rituals-editedFor women, it will provide a glimpse into the male psyche; for men, it will be one Bravo show that they actually don’t mind watching. ‘Online Dating Rituals of the American Male’ premieres on Sunday, March 9 at 10pm EST (before moving to Thursdays on March 13) and each episode will follow two men as they attempt to land a date online. Some men will be seeking wives, while others will be looking for one-night stands.

Bravo’s social strategy will play up the show’s ‘anthropological’ attempt to get to the core of the male psyche. The marketing team will introduce a “What’s Your Dating Species/Which Male Mate Should You Date?” Twitter-based quiz. Users can tweet back answers by selecting 5 hashtags from a “hashtag cloud.” Once tweeted, a reply instantly comes back from @bravotv telling them their Latin species name along with an embedded video that defines their species. Some of the species types include Friendus Alonis (a guy who’s always in the friend zone) and Predatorius Obnoxious (an aggressive player). Read more

Last year, we wrote about T-Mobile’s role in making the show’s Silver Jubilee the most social yet.  T-Mobile returns this year as the presenting sponsor, and the show seeks to surpass last year’s success and scale with new social and digital integrations.

Last year’s telecast reached 11.6 million viewers and made Univision the No. 2 network for the night (regardless of language) among Adults 18-34 for the fourth consecutive year.

Snapchat Turns Down $3 Billion Offer From Facebook

snapchatPhoto text messaging app Snapchat has turned down a $3 billion cash offer from Facebook, reports The Wall Street Journal.

According to the Journal’s report, Snapchat is not currently on the market.

Evan Spiegel, Snapchat’s 23-year-old co-founder and CEO, will not likely consider an acquisition or an investment at least until early next year, the people briefed on the matter said. They said Spiegel is hoping Snapchat’s numbers – of users and messages – will grow enough by then to justify an even larger valuation, the people said.

According to the report, this is the second time Facebook attempted to buy Snapchat, previously offering over $1 billion, and coming back in recent weeks with the all cash offer, which would have doubled the amount it paid for Instagram in 2012.

Snapchat declined comment on the report.
