HootSuite’s Game of Thrones #GameofSocial

HootSuiteA year ago HootSuite showed just how much the company’s employees love Game of Thrones with their Social Media Winter is Coming infographic (see below). The infographic was a visual representation of the quiet battles being fought between many social networks, who were building walls and blocking access between their respective sites and apps. That graphic was a hit with the social media community, so HootSuite’s people knew they had to take things up a notch for this season’s premiere. Enter the Game of Social Thrones video.

This clip is inspired by the beautiful opening sequence of the hit HBO show (whose 4th season premieres on April 6th!). The animated clip portrays some of the world’s biggest social networks as kingdoms (which, let’s be honest, they kind of are). Just like at the start of the show, geometric buildings emerge section by section from a flat plane as you fly over them from above. Each of the kingdoms has characteristics and features unique to the social network they represent, from Google’s YouTube coliseum to the big job market of LinkedIn. There are also a few hidden easter eggs—see how many you can find.
