Show to work with "Celebs on Facebook"
"LIVE! with Kelly," host Kelly Ripa announced that the top morning talk
show will partner with mega social media website Facebook from Feb. 22-27. During
today's program, which originated from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko
Olina, Hawaii, Ripa revealed details of the six-day partnership, which
coincides with the launch of Ripa's own new Facebook timeline.
Beginning Feb. 22, "LIVE" will take over the popular "Celebs on Facebook" page. The 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 Feb. 27 from the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center). "Celebs on Facebook" also will 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 "LIVE's" after-Oscar broadcast.
