AWOLNATION and Red Bull Records are proud to unveil the latest in fan-to-band-to-fan networking called The AWOL “NATION” Project, an innovate new community-driven site that creates a living, breathing interactive experience centered around fan-contributed content. Fans can post anything they want on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube or Vimeo and if it’s tagged with the hashtag #awolnation, it will show up on the new AWOL â€œNATIONâ€ fan site in real-time.
As fans around the world talk about AWOLNATION and tag their content (photos, videos, comments), the site continuously evolves, allowing fans from across the globe to explore and engage with both the band and each other like never before. Additionally, if fans geo-tag their posts, those posts show up on a custom Google-powered map, allowing fans from around the world to interact with the band and each other.
Behind the scenes, The Uprising Creative, the design and development company behind the site, built it on top of a customized WordPress install and used custom-built tools to tap into the APIs from these four services Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Vimeo. As posts are found via the APIs, they are pulled into the site, and anything with a geo-tag is additionally mapped to its specific coordinates using the Google Maps API.
Keep up with, and meet up with other fans and the band during the AWOLNATION â€œNever Let Your Fear Decide Your Fateâ€ U.S. tour, with the rapidly on-the-rise alternative band Imagine Dragons and indie hip-hop artist Zeale.
