Abstract

Social networks contribute to improve the consumption of television content through participation. The thematic channels aimed to children and youth have also expanded their online presence by creating a profile on the leading social network in Spain. In this paper we analyze Boing, Disney Channel and Neox profiles in Facebook. Using a quantitative-qualitative methodology, we analyze the degree of channels´ interactivity and the level of popularity, engagement and virality of their messages, distinguishing between child and youth target. Results show that channels use Facebook mainly as a promotional tool and that they generate little engagement.
