RadioShack creates Facebook photo mosaics

By : |July 7, 2008 0

FORT WORTH & BOSTON, USA: Facebook members have a creative new way to showcase pictures of themselves, friends and family. This popular social utility connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. With the just-launched "RadioShack  MyMosaic" Facebook application, members now have an easy way to create dazzling, multi-layered photo mosaics from online photos.

The application launch is part of a new RadioShack online social media campaign that ties into photo uploading and sharing: two of the most popular activities on Facebook.

RadioShack’s MyMosaic creates a digital mosaic from a selected image. The image is made up of many smaller photos, forming one picture. Users can click on the mosaic and go deeper and deeper into additional image layers of the mosaic all made up of their friends’ profile photos. The application is a great way to display many photos on a profile page in one small space. In addition, people can share their photo mosaic with friends and family.

Carat is a global independent media communications network that has worked with RadioShack for the last several years. The company initiated the project by partnering with Moma Labs to build the Facebook application for RadioShack. The social media initiative, designed to build awareness for RadioShack’s digital imaging products, is also supported by an advertising program on Facebook.

"RadioShack MyMosaic creates a visually dynamic way for people to create and play with their own unique piece of digital photo art by zooming in and out with the click of their mouse," said Melissa Romig, Media Director at Carat. "This photo-intensive application showcases RadioShack’s strong involvement in the digital imaging product category."

Peter Whitsett, RadioShack’s executive vice president, general merchandising manager, added, "Through Facebook, we’re helping raise our brand’s awareness and create additional relevance with a younger customer base. Such an interesting and unusual application is a great testament to our ‘Do Stuff’ positioning by encouraging customers to create an enjoyable outcome that previously did not exist."
