A great new idea from Dutch companyÂ PlanSpot, due to launch in September, will offer a comprehensive way to set up andÂ promote events on and off-line. The service can post on multiple social platforms simultaneously. All responses then feed on to one page, making it a lot easier to track feedback. Thereâ€™ll be a PressÂ CenterÂ where users can partner with suggested media partners to raise awareness. All this and itâ€™s free for all to use! AsÂ Google+ Events launched this week it will be a welcome package to manage a multitude of platforms.
Now we all love to see someone getting it right andÂ Â Uniqlo are consistently up there with the best of the best on social media initiatives. Their latest feat: an incredibly well made, visually impressive, technically bamboozling Pinterest page – and we know, we build them!Â Utilising the scroll functionality perfectly, this hack is simply delightful. While weâ€™re not sure what it would do for engagement and sales (itâ€™s rather distracting) itâ€™s certainly getting talked about. Bravo.
Ford have introduced an interesting initiative, building on their Key Free Technology which unlocks a userâ€™s car when they approach. Theyâ€™ve taken the idea toÂ the next level and introduced Key Free Log-In. Users download the software from the Ford website and enter all of their log-in info from different online platforms. Your portable device is now the key to your online world, automatically logging you in when you and your device are within range. A great idea to save time without having to remember countless passwords.
Facebook have announced the release of the â€œFacebook App Centre,â€ a platform within the social network to buy, download and install apps. A blog post on the siteâ€™s developer page this week says the â€œApp Centreâ€ will go live in the next few weeks online and on mobile. The new centre will allow for the development of paid-for apps and rely on user rankings, rather than â€˜likesâ€™ to push apps up the tables. It seems Facebook are trying to encourage developers to get behind them and help improve the social platform. Your move Appleâ€¦
Japanese clothing company Uniqlo have teamed up with Yoko Kanno and Grammy nominated Cornelius, to design an app that helps you wake up by singing you a song. The music which shakes you from your slumber will change depending on the time, which day of the week it is and the weather outlook for the day. Users have the ability to share the song the second the alarm has been turned off and their day has begun. Cute, right?! Well â€“ annoying as it may seem, we think itâ€™ll go down a treat with Uniqloâ€™s target market.
Online social influence affecting real world situations is here for the long-haulâ€¦ Klout, the influence scoring site, has partnered with Cathay Pacific Airways, to utilise their newly released iPhone app. Having mobile Klout, (as long as your influencer score is above 40) will get you access to the airlineâ€™s first class lounge at San Francisco International Airport. The goal is to garner some social coverage for the airline, encouraging influencers to share their experiences via Instagram, tweeting or checking in. Simply show your profile on the app to the receptionist and you have exclusive access to what’s behind that velvet rope.
