German Marketing Agency Stealthily Uses Facebook Places For Hiring, Pre-Launch
We’ve seen quite a few ingenious ways to use the Web for recruitment or to land a job. The Daily Mail newspaper’s job advert in its search engine-targeted robot.txt immediately springs to mind as does the ad man who bought up Google Adwords spots next to the names of six ad executives he wanted to work with.
But the following effort from German digital marketing agency Jung von Matt/Neckar involving Facebook Places before it had launched locally is the stealthiest of them all. Here’s how it worked:
- Survey Finds Local Marketing Dollars Go To Facebook Places Over Foursquare, Groupon
- German Spy Agency Seeks Millions To Monitor Social Networks
- Facebook Gives All Developers Access To Full Set Of Places APIs
- Marketing Agency Uses Homeless As Wi-Fi Hotspots
- German Intel Agency Helped NSA Tap Fiber Optic Cables In Germany
