Hey kids…want to hang out with the new Star Trek movie? Well it now has its own Facebook page.
In case anyone is wondering, TrekMovie.com has confirmed that this page was created by Paramount. The page was created earlier this week and it already has 160 fans (presumably that will go up as people learn about it). So far not much going on with the page (just the teaser posters), but in the coming months the page should grow. No word yet on if Star Trek will show up on any other social networking sites. Paramount has been doing more social networking marketing lately, including special MySpace campaigns for both Transformers and Cloverfield. In the case of Cloverfield, many of the film’s characters had their own MySpace pages — each providing more clues to that mysterious movie.
Along with the new official movie site, Paramount is clearly gearing up their online marketing campaign for the new Star Trek movie. Being that this movie is being made by people who have been involved with Lost, Cloverfield and Transformers, it is quite possible that some ‘viral’ type of things will also pop up over the next year as well. And, of course, TrekMovie.com will be here to find them!
