Browsing through my Facebook feed, I usually take the time looking at the ads served to me. It’s not just to bump their impressions, but I love looking at how advertisers execute their campaigns and personally determine if the ad was served right to me. Knowing that me and my son have a pet game called “Hay Day”, I was not surprised when I noticed this ad below from Clash of Clans, a game from the developer – Supercell.
What surprised me though was that the Tagalized ad. It was in Tagalog! Or rather in Filipino.
Apple recently launched their two new phones – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. But only days after their launch, the company ran into a PR problem: New owners of iPhones reported that their phones can bend spelling a major media disaster for the company.
This became a major opportunity for Apple’s competitors to poke fun at Apple’s misfortune with their own phone’s better features and ride on the wave.
LG, Samsung, and HTC took their jabs at the recent news of Apple iPhone’s #bendgate problem. It has been a good angle for them to push for the features of their own smartphones that are actually made on purpose versus Apple’s design and hardware problems.
