IPG’s Universal Media has partenered with Newsfeed SmartApps to launch a creative newsfeed app post on Qatar Olympics Facebook page. Fans can browse through all the Qatari Olympians taking part in Rio 2016 and cheer for them right from the Facebook post.
Universal Media’s innovative use of newsfeed smartapp technology can be lauded here as they envisioned a newsfeed post where Qatari’s could browse through the full Olympic contingent from Qatar based on what sport they’re taking part in. Click on a sport and view the athlete’s and when users click on the athlete’s, a short bio is given with their goal for Rio 2016. The newsfeed app has already garnered fantastic traction with many shares and comments.
Universal Media Qatar’s digital team added, “We loved the customization that Newsfeed SmartApps offered us. The ability to have profile’s of all athlete’s in one post and allowing fans to cheer for them was great”.
Head of Business for Newsfeed SmartApps, Mohammed Faiz Ali shared, “It was a matter of pride for us to be able to work on a prestigous account like Qatar Olympics. Working with the UM team was fantastic, they’re a bunch of creative professionals who know what they want and go the extra mile to achieve the client and the campaign’s objective”.
