Questions What do you think of the KLM social media campaign? Knowing you could get a gift would make you check-in, tweet about it or even choose that airline over others? Have you used any of these location-based social networks? In Chile there is HappyShop, what do you think of it? Can you remember a small business location-based campaign you participated? If not, any ideas?
