Royal Wedding 2.0

Whether you have royal wedding fever and have gotten up in the wee hours to watch the cermony or you could care less, one thing you have to give props to is the way they have used social media to give everyone a piece of the experience.

If you’re looking to use social media to promote an event, take a look at some of the ways social media has played a part in the royal wedding of 2011.

  • First of all, there is the royal wedding blog that has been giving updates about everything to do with the royal nuptials.
  • Next, you can share your excitement with fans of the British Monarchy on the official Royal Wedding event page.
  • Want to watch? You can catch the the live broadcast rebroadcast and highlights of the cermony on the royal Youtube channel.
  • Follow the currently promoted #RoyalWedding hashtag for the latest conversation on Twitter.
  • Want to know what’s going to happen? Download the 27 page official wedding program from the Prince of Wales government site.
  • Ready to see some photos? Head over to the British Monarchy Flickr account to see the latest and best snapshots.

And lastly, it’s not just the royals that are providing us with lots of lovely information. There has been a surge in content about the event, including some great royal wedding infographics created about royal weddings of the past, the cost, and other factoids of interest.

At the time of writing this, I haven’t decided whether I’ll get up at 3am to watch this live or just go for a replay later in the day. Will you be watching?

    I guess I’ll be watching it live since I can’t stop staring at the TV while working – I’m seeing a lot of updates on every channel here and most will have a live telecast of it this afternoon (here in PH).

    By the way, thanks for including my guest post on Oni’s blog on your list :) I see some very interesting titles up there that I haven’t checked this week, I’ll probably enjoy this weekend reading.

    Regards,

      It is… I will have five in a category, then find another post that I like even more and have to decide who to cut. It’s a daunting task!

    Hey Kristi, thanks so much for including me in the list :) I really appreciate it. I clicked 5 posts that seemed the most interesting on the first read here, and I gotta say they were great. Are great. Not that I doubted your choice… You always make such great round ups!

    As far as the royal wedding goes, I really didn’t care that much, but there is such hype that even I decided to watch it. Yes, live, it is almost 3 AM here and I believe it is about to start.

    So although I would love to stay and chat I am dumping all blogging for a few hours of royal wedding dress and almost 53 mil pounds :)

      You’re welcome Brankica! I’m just catching the replay on the side of my screen. Nice to see all of the people celebrating their big day on the streets!

      Great time to be getting into SEO Onibalusi – it’s becoming more quality, less quantity oriented. Guest posting is a big trend to, and I think you’ve covered the market on that quite well!

  3. says

    Quite a nice list again!
    Can’t promise I’ll be able to read all of them, but I’m sure gonna go through alot of them!

    Thanks Kristy. I found a few good resources here.

    And that wedding, that’s like almost a million percent more expensive. But, they are the royals.

      You’re welcome John! I’m not watching it on TV – just the replay is open on the side of my screen while I work. Kind of adds a little excitement to the day, listening to how happy the crowds are. :)

      Glad I got you some good variety this week. I’ve been working on expanding my reading to expand the scope of sites on the mashups. :)

      And all I have to say about the royal wedding is trending topics – it never hurts to jump on one!

    I saved a whole wack to instapaper and read over a few right away. None of those were related to the royal wedding either. I’m behind from the other week as I just got back from Cancun, Mexico and ready to soak up this info instead of sun.

    Very interesting about the google clickthrough stats.

    Thanks as usual – can’t wait to catch up on your photos too!

    Well now the wedding is done and over. I am sure we will hear about it for a few days yet. For those that got up in the middle of the night to see it must be die hard fans. With all the internet and news coverage these days I sure wouldn’t stay up all night.
