Guardian boosts reader base with Facebook video content

Digital marketing industry case study library


The Guardian newspaper used Facebook to reach a new audience, increase engagement on their site and ultimately grow their base of readers through Open Graph. Guardian built a Facebook app to bring news, video and audio content to readers. The app publishes actions across a range of content: news articles, videos, and even podcasts. They also created lightweight actions 'agree' and 'disagree' for opinion articles to enable people to share their sentiment on issues. Open-graph actions and objectives such as read an article, watch a video, play a podcast, agree or disagree with an article were incorporated. The app has grown to over 3.9 million monthly active users, over half of which are under the age of 25.
