Kiss Keeps it Social and Digital
For a band that has been around since 1973, Kiss is incredibly plugged into the digital and social scenes. In addition to this Facebook promotion, the band is also taking social to a new level on its 40-city summer tour with Motley Crüe.
Kiss has teamed up with Ortsbo -- a real-time communications technology company -- to create a global social engagement platform.
What's cool about the hub is that it lets the band simultaneously connect with the Kiss Army in 53 languages across 17 social networks. This will allow the band to share and connect on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Vevo, Flickr, YouTube and more. The translation technology will also allow fans to communicate in real-time, across languages.
Kiss is currently on tour. Its next album, Monster will be released in October. Fans can pre-order the album through iTunes on July 31 and on Amazon now.
Do you think this is a great way for older acts like Kiss to engage with fans using technology? Let us know in the comments.
