Mark June 1st as a milestone day for our company. In the last 24 hours, our colleagues at Vanity Fair broke a number of internal records with their Caitlyn Jenner July cover story. With 13.1 million organic video views, we had our best video day ever. And, VanityFair.com generated its highest-ever single-day traffic with more than 9 million unique visitors. The story was trending on Twitter within the first 10 minutes of being live and on Facebook within the first 2 hours — and continues on Day 2 to be number 1 on Facebook and number 3 on Twitter.
This is fitting recognition for a brand that continues to demonstrate how brilliant journalism, striking images and editorial excellence elevate our culture and our company on every platform.
These successes should be celebrated by all those who contributed. Nearly every brand promoted the story on social media and on their sites — showing the power of the entire Condé Nast network.
Congratulations to Vanity Fair and to everyone who made June 1st a day to remember.
