Mountain Dew uses social media to create next drink flavour

More and more brands uses social media as a tool to reach more people, more fans and of course by that hopefully grow their business.
Pepsi Co. brand Mountain Dew has created the most aggressive social media campaigns ever.
Pepsi used their social media fan base to create, brand and market three experimental new flavours created by their fans. Now that the new flavours are out, the most success one online and in stores during an eight week period will become a permanent part of the Moutain Dew product line.
This campaign named, DEWmocracy 2, started in July 2009, after a call to action to get fans to use social media to help the company create a new flavour. After the top three flavours were selected the participants were organised into members of Flavour Nations. Each nation now has its own Facebook page and Twitter account to get people to buy their flavour. Members of each nation will also travel across the country to encourage social media sharing and flavor voting.
Mountain Dew put 100% of the power in the hands of each Flavor Nation to control the direction, branding and marketing of their respective flavours!
If you want to watch the fans co-created ads they are on Dewmocracy.com.
Quite an impressive social media campaign!

British Cycling campaign to save Racing on the road! Get involved

To stop the decline of UK’s road racing, British Cycling has launched a Facebook campaign.

There are so many issues to maintain Racing on the roads. Organisers have problems with outdating highways legislation or even like Police charging. The organiser’s job would be much easier and police time saved if there was a clear practice established which allowed marshals to stop and slow traffic briefly in order to let a race pass. Today many race organisers are finding the barriers to promoting just too difficult to navigate and road races and participants in the sport are being lost.
To try to remain to these issues and secure the future of road racing British cycling has created a campaign though a Facebook Fan page. Their Facebook page is the public face of the campaign and you can help turn this aspect of the sport around. They need as many people as possible to sign up as a fan of the page and support this cause. We all know that the more people seen to be backing a campaign like this, the more likely the politicians and other influential figures are to help!

So become a fan fast and help to secure the future of Racing on the roads.
