Facebook 1914 - Museum of the Great War & DDB, Paris - Turning History Into An Interesting Human Story
To promote the Museum of the Great War DDB, Paris created a very special brand page on Facebook - actually a personal looking page with the profile of Leon Vivien with the idea to imagine what French people would have posted on facebook if it had existed in 1914.
Through Facebook the story of Leon is cleverly made much more interesting, relevant and tangible for the younger audiences with hundreds of posts and comments, plus dozens of documents and objects from the museum collection.
Over time the story was told with twists and turns and developed like a serie - A human story unfolded in a way the target group could relate to and thus eventually created the desire to further experience and explore first hand at the museum.
