The Top News & Research in your InboxSUBSCRIBE
The contract between you, my dear reader and moi, your beloved editor, implies that when you hear about news such as the one below, you let me know.
I feel ashamed I haven't posted about this yet. It is one of the coolest Facebook promotion initiatives I have seen around for a while.
Long story short, Coca Cola used RFID in their Coca Cola Village to let customers 'Like' stuff in real life.
A possible application: I have dedicated an area of my event to hang out and relax. I installed an RFID enabled device allowing my attendees to broadcast a message to their millions of Facebook friends that they 'Like' it. My attendees' friends Like it as well, my event is going viral.
Kaboom. This is the killer app. I am sure you can achieve something like that with QR Codes which is quite nice, but this is the real deal.
I got to know about it as I was attending a conference where a Facebook executive showed this video, answering the question 'What's ahead for Facebook?'.
Enjoy and start thinking about it, more likes = free promotion. Nice!
