Because Post-It is 30 Years old this year, Profero have launched a massive campaign to celebrate the sticky brightly coloured labels birthday. So you might start seeing posters all over the place in the style of Post-It’s advertising the website www.dontforgetyourfriends.com, especially in London as there’s going to be a huge one hanging around Broadgate Circus along with other smaller posters dotted around the city. Along with that, if you work in an office you might just get yourself some Post-It packs in celebration of the 30th anniversary.
So what about the website? Well click on the link and you’ll be sent to an application for Facebook which you have to allow access to your page just like other games through the social networking site. It will gather information from your friends accounts as well, so you can answer some friends related questions, which I’m assured is very safe. You’ll then proceed to answer questions in over 3 rounds which will ask you things like, “Whose birthday is it next?”, “Who has the most photo albums?” and the like.
Most of the time I was just guessing, as let’s face it, you don’t know the ins and outs of all your Facebook friends, if you did you’d be Rain Man, although with the mobile apps for Facebook, you do kind of have those answers wherever you go, in fact Facebook might be built-in for iPhone OS 4.0.
In the first round you only have two friends to choose from, the second round three and the third round four, so it is does get trickier as you progress. It will only take you a couple of minutes to get through but it’s worth it as there’s the possibility of winning yourself a luxurious holiday. You have to get a score of 80% or over to be put into the prize draw, but it’s definitely worth spending a couple of minutes out of your time to answer a few fun questions about your mates. Interesting to make a game out of your friends, if you’d like to do the same on Twitter, you should take a look at Twitter Top Trumps.
Facebook is quick becoming the place where a lot of gaming companies are taking their products to including giants like EA. It’s an interesting move to do something like this as it shows just how powerful social networking sites have become for not only staying in touch, and a few games, but marketing as well. Is there no end to what Facebook is allowing people to do? It’s not long ago that we even got UK Election Debate Videos on Facebook – do you like the way that Facebook is developing? Or do you just want a closed, private network where you can interact with your friends?
But it’s worth checking out www.dontforgetyourfriends.com as you could be jetting off on a holiday for spending a few minutes of your life answering fun, daft questions about your Facebook friends.
