NBC engaged with fans and social influencers with targeted social media platform activations on Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook, a "check-in" feature with a custom Yellow Brick Road icon was created when updating your status to "watching The Wiz Live." A Twitter Moment, with support from @TwitterMusic and @TwitterTV, featured highlights and conversations surrounding "The Wiz Live!" and #TheWiz.

At an average of 5.9 tweets per unique author, the special drew a very vocal user base, which enjoyed sharing and posting countless memes, Vines, and GIFs, as evidenced by the list of most-retweeted posts.

Other social activations included cast support with posting behind-the-scenes photos during rehearsals and live show, sharing tune-in videos and social art. Mary J.
