The app’s ‘sync to TV’ feature syncs the second-screen social conversation in real-time to each show currently in Adult Swim’s linear telecast. Arktan SocialStreams is powering the second-screen social conversation by extending curated real-time fan and official social conversation to Adult Swim Bump Builder from across all leading social platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Fans can then start “divulging their brain matter” in the second-screen social conversation. They can see the most popular hashtags in the app, and after using their social login, start participating in the conversation by posting their comments and sharing them on Twitter or Facebook.
The app’s mobile-optimized grid visualization enhances the social conversation. The responsive visualization is optimized for viewing photos and videos from Adult Swim television shows and provides fans with mobile-optimized social experiences on both smartphones and tablets across all leading mobile platforms, including Apple iOS and Android devices.
"As consumption of content on mobile devices continues to grow, it’s increasingly important for brands to tailor real-time social experiences for mobile. The Adult Swim Bump Builder app is highly mobile-optimized. We are excited to power the second-screen ‘sync to TV’ social integration for the app, which reinforces the leadership of Arktan's social platform on mobile devices,” said Rahul Aggarwal, Arktan's CEO and Co-Founder.
