Facebook campaign created for Scandinavian Airlines. The campaign violated Facebook T&Cs and was pulled but they managed to finish the competition and the video is at 20,000+ view and rising.

Simple and smart. Props CP+B Europe.

Facebook Places. What are the benefits for brands?

Facebook Places just became the No.1 in location based services. End of.

For brands the opportunities are massive. You get all the nice bits of Foursquare (check-in, location data, feedback, competitions, redemption, vouchers, loyalty schemes, social gaming, etc) but with the 500 million people on Facebook.

There’ll be loads of smart activity based around people ‘coming together’. Wearable technology will soon enable automatic check-in to stores. Deep and immersive social gaming becomes a reality. We all know what’s possible. But now the numbers make it exciting and viable.

Everything just became connected and the wider implications are big.

Each brand needs to think about what that means for them. But If you’re doing ‘digital stuff’ well and you’ve got a high street presence. Game on.

Meanwhile, the UK waits….

Google. The Beast

It’s so easy to forget about how much personal information we hand over to Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. My mind was sharply focused again today when I read today that MySpace has taken a bold step and allowed a large quantity of bulk user data to be put up for sale.

The truth is that we really have no idea how these companies will use our data for in the future.

Here’s a video which makes Google look a bit scary.
