Star Wars lego storm troopers

Star Wars is one of the largest film franchises in history. The sci-fi series has generated over four billion dollars in gross revenue, a figure that will only get higher with the release of the seventh film, “The Force Awakens”, on December 18th, 2015.

The Star Wars franchise was built first and foremost on a great story. The franchise has also done an excellent job of keeping fans engaged and energized through social media.

Star Wars maintains an active social media presence on networks as diverse as Tumblr, Instagram and Google+. All of the Star Wars social content used is optimized towards each network’s audience and platform. For example, the Star Wars Google+ account is used primarily for Q and A, whereas its Tumblr blog serves as a place for fan art.

Whatever the platform, the Star Wars social media activity seems geared towards one purpose: to engage and excite fans.
