“Social media is driving a large-scale business transformation, led by consumers seeking to use their ability to dialogue with brands and purchasing power to influence business attitudes,” said Richie Matthews.  “The interplay between demographic changes and the assimilation of U.S. Hispanics is one of the issues of the day shaping community outreach and marketing decisions by companies and causes focused on this segment.”

Telemundo’s social media strategy for its “Relaciones Peligrosas” soap opera began employing an aggressive style of engagements with viewers that included Facebook chats, Twitter, YouTube, the use of hashtags and more.  The digital strategy provides viewers and novela fans with a fully interactive SocialTV storytelling experience on a nightly basis, generating interest among existing fans and “friends” of fans that is reshaping how novelas are watched on TV, iPads and more.
