Flip and checkout the new Ghostbusters trailer…
We all know that the first trailer for Ghostbusters will always and forever hold the dubious distinction of being the most disliked movie trailer in the history of YouTube. This time around trailer was posted exclusively on Facebook and Twitter. And the strategy appears to have paid off, as the response is much better.
After acquiring over 800K dislikes on YouTube for their first peek at reboot, Sony entered into an exclusive deal with Facebook and Twitter to unveil the second trailer. The response there has been very different. As of this writing, the Facebook trailer has received 43,000 views and has received 36,000 likes, 3,100 loves, and 207 wows. On the flip side, they have only received 2,200 angry and 222 sad responses. While the ratio of positive to negative response is very different, so is the size, and makeup, of the audience. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, the first trailer, which was so derided on YouTube, saw much more positive results on Facebook as well. – CinemaBlend
