Create the first interactive Spring Festival Gala, Xiaohongshu inspires new ways of communication between the Spring Festival Gala and young people

    This year, the China Central Radio and Television Station’s Year of the Dragon Spring Festival Gala teamed up with Xiaohongshu to launch the “Watch the Spring Festival Gala on the big screen and chat about the Spring Festival Gala on the small screen” mode. As an unprecedented new attempt at interaction, the Spring Festival Gala, the most important Spring Festival ritual for Chinese people, has a "second stage" for in-depth interaction with young people.

    While discussing the Spring Festival Gala, young users also created secondary content for the gala and interacted with Spring Festival Gala actors in real time in the live broadcast room. Next to the Spring Festival Gala studio of the main station, Xiaohongshu set up a live broadcast room and started a seven-hour non-stop live broadcast. Together with the Spring Festival Gala actors, they "watched, chatted and bought in real time", becoming everyone's "Spring Festival Gala small living room".

    The number of users and the number of viewers of the domestic new media real-time live broadcast of the Year of the Dragon Spring Festival Gala also set a new record.

The overall effect is really beyond our imagination."

    As a live broadcast project facing such a large Chinese audience around the world, the challenge faced by Xiaohongshu this time is equivalent to a battle.

    According to the person in charge, the live broadcast room of "Everyone's Spring Festival Gala" is located at the backstage of the Spring Festival Gala. Xiaohongshu has dispatched a team of hundreds of people to the main station. The team spans multiple businesses and functions such as live broadcast products and technology, content production, e-commerce, commercialization, community operations, communication, and market branding. Starting from the beginning of February, five rounds of cross-department joint drills and repeated exercises closely connected everyone involved.

    The most difficult thing in the process is that the Spring Festival Gala program is constantly changing. With every change, the content design, guest sequence, and interactive topics of the live broadcast room must be adjusted accordingly. It wasn't until the early morning of New Year's Eve that the project team finalized the last guest. No one can guarantee it until the last moment of the broadcast, and the content script is finalized.

    Although there were many difficulties and unpredictable variables, the team still withstood the pressure and completed the task beyond expectations.
