I just received an important email from Hannah Villasis of TV5 and Miss World Philippines regarding the addition of the social media angle to this year’s Miss World competition.
Here’s what she wrote and I quote:
“Miss World Global has just announced the significance of Social Media in this year’s pageant. With this, we trained Queenie all she needs to learn regarding social media and will manage the official Miss World Philippines Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-World-Philippines/432199386812477
The social media angle will be a part of this year’s scoring for the pageant. How you can help support Queenie who will represent the Philippines this year in Mongolia.”
The Official Statement of Miss World Organization is as follows:
The new Miss World website is here!
10 July 2012
New for the 2012 Miss World Contest: Interact with contestants and other fans around the world by selecting your desired country from our Contestants Live panel on the homepage.
For the first time, visitors can watch the Miss World event through the eyes of all 120 Miss World contestants as each contestant has their own social media presence allowing them to upload their personal progress to the final show.
Contestants can tell their own stories by uploading videos, images and messages as part of a new multimedia award component which will earn them marks towards the Miss World final scoreboard.
Fans can follow and interact with all of the Miss World contestants through social media integration on the site.
Remember to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to keep fully updated throughout the contest.

Another innovation from the think tank of Julia Morley’s organization, but something that should pave the way for a far more interactive approach to this year’s edition. If we can be of help in any way towards upping Queenie’s scores in the various segments of Miss World 2012, then why not? The message above is loud and clear. 🙂
