‘The Crown’ & ‘Diana’ – Multi-platform examples of the social media explosion

Here is a selection of the recent torrent of news coverage and social media posts that responded to Netflix‘s cross-promotion of THE CROWN and the documentary DIANA IN HER OWN WORDS.

The mix, from The Guardian to TikTok adds up to an valuable Case Study of the landscape through which producers, buyers and comms teams must navigate in the post-channel era — if they want to make an impact.
