    51. 51.

Interestingly however, a recent a recent survey of those who play online social games found that the average social gamer is a 43-year-old woman.

Location based services utilise Global positioning systems (GPS) to associate a users position with their activities and interests to enrich the social networking experience User submitted location data enables social networks to connect & coordinate a users with their locales, offering explanation, analysis & detailed commentary through a combination of multimedia content. With the growth of mobile and social media and demand for real-time information, Geo-location social apps are making their mark; the most prominent being Foursquare, Gowalla and Facebook Places which have stirred much media hype this year. What is it?
    62. 62. Facebook Places broadcasts a location check-in to a user news feed, users can view friends and events nearby or review/recommend place. Centric to the concept is to enhance the social experience by utilising location to merge on and offline. Unlike it’s main rivals Gowalla and Foursquare, Places misses a gaming element. In saying this, it has partnered with other geo-location companies, including Gowalla, Foursquare, InCrowd and Yelp to help integrate it’s services. Recently added was a function to find local deals, expanding the platforms marketing potential. Although there are no published numbers for usage, with Facebook’s 500+ active million users the potential for Places is evidently vast. Facebook Places
    63. 63. Foursquare has two primary functions. Firstly, a social component for sharing your location with friends, figuring out where they are or making a recommendation. Second is a gaming element centred around the collection of points, prize "badges," and eventually coupons. In October 2010 Foursquare signed up its 4 millionth member and to date has generated much interest as an extended social media strand, enabling brands to directly reward loyalty. Foursquare
    64. 64. Although Gowalla has been in the spotlight as a LBS contender, outside the US Gowalla holds little pull as a marketing platform with a base of approx 450,000 global members. Similar to Foursquare, Gowalla works on a gaming premise that rewards users with badges and points for check-ins. Although you are able to connect with friends, Gowalla has a more individual focus than Foursquare. Gowalla

Supported by ‘The Explore Chicago Giveaway’ (a free trip for two out-of towners) on Foursquare’s Facebook page, users were invited to post a comment detailing the scene they would like to recreate from the movie.
    67. 67. This mini cooper campaign is a brilliant game of catch. Using a mobile geo-location app users must track and catch a mini and then keep there distance from other users for 7days in order to win the mini as a prize. This is an innovative example of brands thinking beyond the limitations that existing Geo-location apps may offer, building their own platform to meet their specific needs Click image to view

    69. 69. Digital Integration: Achieving cut through in a saturated market is increasingly reliant on engaging consumers through experience.

    70. 70. Toyota Auris used 3D light projection in a recent campaign to illustrate the cars recycled energy. The idea entailed parking the car in a normal, everyday location and using projection mapping showcase the Hybrid technology. To people walking past on the night the car appeared to come alive, the bodywork of the car peeling back to reveal a glowing blue light to symbolize the car's recycled energy. The blue light then escaped from the car ‘energising’ objects in the surrounding environment - before going back into the car to demonstrate how the Auris Hybrid gets its energy back.
