Samsung use Facebook to stir-up some excitement for the Beijing Olympics


facebook404.jpgI hate Facebook apps. Writing about them requires me to login to Facebook, which I hate doing as much as I hate Facebook apps. That’s one for you to ponder. Currently the link for this particular application is down, so all I can relay to you is hearsay and conjecture.

Samsung have just released the ‘Virtual Torch Relay’. To participate, you create your own torch, which you can then pass on to your friends, who in turn pass it to theirs etc. There is a scoreboard based on some sort of related data, and its leaders are in with the chance of winning a pair of tickets to the Olympic games in Beijing.

Light your torch and get involved here
