Harry Potter Twitter App

The people at Warner Bros have created something magical by combining the famous boy wizard, Harry Potter and something called social media!

Twitter users can now sign up to the new magical offering by quill and ink. Forget all those years at Hogwarts, with this nifty little app users get three options to cast spells on their unwitting followers, or ‘muggles’. The three options on offer include shrouding the follower’s Twitter page in darkness, sending a flock of birds that fly across the screen and declaring affection for a follower by sending a love potion.

A website hosting the campaign has been set up to back the launch of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which debuted in UK cinemas last week.

It also enables Twitter users to choose from a range of messages to send to followers such as, ‘I made you this love potion because I no longer want to hide my feelings for you under an invisibility cloak.’

The campaign was created by Warner Bros and aims to drum up interest in the launch of the latest film in the Harry Potter franchise.

Experiment #1: Media Mash

Pomegranate Media are announcing a new experiment into social media! We are currently in the lab getting out the bunsen burners, tweaking knobs and turning screws to create one monster of an experiment!

The aim of our experiment is to find out just how far we can push ourselves within the social media network. Using sites such as You Tube, Twitter, Facebook and the like we plan on promoting ourselves left right and centre.

Check back here soon for an update on our progress. Keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground… You might just see us out there in action!

Are women and Social Media, the perfect match?

It certainly seems so. A recent study carried out by consumer magazine publisher IPC shows that in the last 12 months alone the number of women attracted to social media and social networking websites has grown by an astonishing 53%. The survey discovered that two-thirds of women count social networking as one of their regular online activities, a quarter of women often read online forums, up from 18% in 2007 while a fifth post questions or answers. With the continued surge towards social networks and user generated content it is time to ask yourself whether your brand and your website is seeing the full benefit. To see how Pomegranate Media can help you maximise the impact from this ever growing audience check out PIP our dedicated search engine optimisation service. The survey also highlighted something many of us already know, the fact that women love to shop! With the proportion of women who shop online (57% of the sample) increasing by 8% since 2007.
