Social Networking and Brand AffinityMay 23, 2008
Our agency just completed an ambitious project for Nestle/Purina called Petcentric Place. It’s a social network for pet owners and their pets, with all the features you would typically expect from a social network: profile pages, media galleries, friending, activity feeds, blogs, private messaging, and a robust profile search/filter. The branding of the site is subtle, but provides a foundation for Purina cohorts to offer useful tools and activities to the community without doing so in a instrusive way. The site also cedes content creation to the community – breaking from the Web 1.0 model of brand as publisher.
Stop by, visit, and let me know what you think.
