Kelly Ripa partners with Facebook for promotion


On Monday’s “Live! with Kelly,” host Kelly Ripa announced that her morning talk show will partner with social media website Facebook from February 22nd through 27th. Live! will take over the popular “Celebs on Facebook” page.

The six-day partnership coincides with the launch of Ripa’s own new Facebook timeline.

The Celebs on Facebook page will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes content from the show, including Live! on location in Hawaii this week, and the preparations for “Live! with Kelly’s After Oscar Show,” to be broadcast live on February 27 from the Kodak Theatre in LA. Celebs on Facebook will also feature interactive award-related questions so that at-home viewers can get involved in the special show.

In addition, Facebook will provide Live! with a wealth of exclusive movie-related data — polls, trends, fascinating facts and figures – culled from Facebook’s more than 845 million users, to be featured on the show as part of the build-up to the after-Oscar broadcast.
