Thought I’d do a social media edition this week. Let’s see what cool stuff is being done with your facebook page.
Swiss Cottages Ad
This will blow your mind. Just click allow when it asks for permission to access your facebook profile. Trust me it’s worth it.
Intel Museum of Me
All the trial spots are taken right now but you can find out what you’re missing out on. It’s more of a heads up for what’s to come. The only really interesting thing about it so far is that the competition is forcing facebook to roll out skype chat which will allow multiple people to video conference at once.
Augmented Reality Cinema
Ok so this is technically geo tagging not social media but it’s still pretty cool. Depending on your exact location the app will play excerpts from films. Still in development but it might be a nice way to rediscover parts of London that you had written off. It’s difficult to tell but it should allow you to feature in these scenes but we’ll have to see how it all pans out.
If you’re really keen to see similar stuff that’s available now then check out Hackney Hear which plays recordings of the history of Hackney as you walk through the borough.
