Kids love Facebook. To promote the release of WWE All-Stars, Ayzenberg Group got fans to vote for their favorite wrestler in a simulated match and spread the word via the social network to unlock more videos and get WWE Shop discounts and other prizes. Ayzenberg Group, which has created youth-targeted campaigns for clients like Atari and Microsoft for nearly 20 years, doubled down on the Facebook affinity with last month’s acquisition of social marketing shop The Social Method, adding 12 people to Ayzenberg for a total of 100-plus employees.
