We enhanced our social media presence by running for the first time the BigPoll 2013 (the annual prediction tool which was accurate 70% on the first semi-final, 60% on the second semi-final and it predicted the winner and the top 4 countries). Furthermore, brought the audience closer to the atmosphere of the Eurovision Song Contest spirit by running special draws where it was giving away free passes to parties being held in Malmö as well as press material exclusively for our readers. But mostly, our coverage was specific and to the point. was everywhere in Malmö.

What about now?
