Two weeks ago, we wrote about three social activations driving the Premio Lo Nuestro Latin Music Awards. While the show did not drive as much social volume as Sunday night’s Oscars (Two words: Ellen selfie), according to Nielsen SocialGuide Premio Lo Nuestro saw a more engaged Twitter audience (4.9 tweets per unique) than the People’s Choice Awards (4.1), Oscars (4.0), and Golden Globe Awards (3.3).
More isn’t always better, then.
Noche de Estrellas, the red carpet show that preceded Premio Lo Nuestro, faired even better against its competition, drivng 5.7 tweets per unique. This is compared to sub-two tweets per unique numbers for each of the three main Oscar red carpet shows.
“We listen to and engage our audiences on the platforms they want to be on whether Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat or Twitter,” David Beck, senior vice president and general manager, Social Media, Univision told Lost Remote. “We offer them amazing opportunities to connect directly with their favorite artists–like asking them questions on the red carpet via Instagram video.”
Nielsen SocialGuide counted a total of 546,600 tweets sent during the show. Beck attributed part of the social success to “the Vine 360 cam dedicated to fans, which captured award winners reactions, a first ever for any awards show.”
