Giving consumers face time

Giving consumers face time

Throughout the summer, Coca-Cola hosted a range of activities bringing teenagers together across Israel. To ensure that these events and activities could be shared across the users’ social networks,  they introduced FaceLook, an app based on Face.com that uses facial recognition technology to create Facebook posts. Users can post comments and pictures to their Facebook wall using only their face as identification.
The teenagers had to register to the events through Facebook where they could opt in to the app. Once at the venues, they were able to activate Facebook posts just by looking at the FaceLook machine. The application identified the user and posted automatic comments relating  to nearby activities.
