Audience Development Company Alphabird Acquires ‘Experiential’ Social Video Platform Media Social

Alphabird today announced that it has acquired Media Social, an early pioneer in the distribution of viral video marketing campaigns, for an undisclosed amount. Media Social has gained acclaim from agencies and national brands for delivering social video activation strategies centered on driving consumer engagement and interactivity.

The acquisition will bring together Media Social’s years of experience and strategic insights in the social video space with Alphabird’s Flight media platform to further empower brands and content producers in creating unique connections with consumers.

“Since inception, our goal at Alphabird was to build out and/or acquire companies that fulfill our vision of being a vertically integrated video audience development company, and we are now there,” said Chase Norlin, CEO of Alphabird. “With Alphabird and Media Social, along with our recent acquisition of Placevine, we now offer the broadest array of social video activation strategies on the market today.”

“Alphabird’s philosophy and approach was highly complementary to ours,” added Media Social founder Rome Viharo.” It’s an alignment of technology platforms, knowledge, and an understanding of the myriad distribution strategies available in online video.”

Media Social was launched in 2008 by Viharo and Maf Lewis, whose team has run successful YouTube strategies for global brands. Beginning immediately, Alphabird will execute on the planned integration of the two companies’ products, customers and employees that will deliver increased value for media buyers, online publishers and audiences.

As a result of the acquisition, Alphabird now has offices in the UK, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
