It is widely accepted that Carnival is the fifth season of the year in the Rhineland. The Rose Monday parade alone attracts over a million people to Düsseldorf. This is an annual highlight for everyone in the region and for local media such as RP Online, Carnival doesn’t just mean colourful costumes, loud brass bands and impressive floats – it also means that only the best live software can be trusted. Thanks to the use of the Tickaroo’s failsafe live blog technology, reporters can focus on the story and online users can participate live and up close in the festivities.
In addition to the simple integration of visual content into the live blog, the various publishing features allow individual posts to be marked as “important”. A post can be highlighted or even fixed with the sticky feature directly at the top of the blog and always displayed first. If a blog post is marked as a milestone, it is highlighted in colour and a clickable headline is presented at the beginning of the blog. By clicking on the title, the reader is brought to the exact post that was marked, however far back in the blog it is. An important feature, especially for a big event like Carnival, RP Online is able to highlight important information for its readers.
Thanks to the user-friendly live blog software, RP Online can easily integrate social media content from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram into the live blog and share even more impressions of the carnival with its users. Through the multimedia integration of various social media channels, visitors or even readers are able to directly become part of the narrative by having content included in the RP Online Live Blog.
