RadioShack Launches Facebook Photo Application
Fort Worth, Texas RadioShack has launched a new Facebook application called “RadioShack’s MyMosaic,” which allows members to create mosaics using their online photos.
RadioShack’s MyMosaic creates a digital mosaic from a selected image. The image is made up of many smaller photos, forming one picture. Users can click on the mosaic and go deeper and deeper into additional image layers of the mosaic made up of their friends’ profile photos.
In addition, people can share their photo mosaic with friends and family.
“Through Facebook, we’re helping raise our brand’s awareness and create additional relevance with a younger customer base,” said Peter Whitsett, RadioShack’s executive VP and general merchandising manager.
