In the world of banking with many cliches about banks market, Standard Chartered Bank gave meaning to innovation. Using the knowledge about their target market and a new way of connection they envisioned with their customers, SCB created an engaging Facebook Campaign Game.
The idea is behind Ramaden, where family and friends gather inside of a tent. The game that SCB recreates that aspect of real life in a virtual setting, allowing users to create their own tent, decorate it with furniture, and invite guests to come visit. SCB credit cards are supplying the means of buying these items and gets exposure all over the game.

Tabs have been removed, and page admins now have the ability to post and comment on other Facebook Pages through a “Login as Page” feature. So now we have business’ that can act as people. Operating more like user profiles, the new layout favors a left hand navigation over the old tabbing system. And just like user profiles have had for the last few months, pages can now feature relevant photos on the top bar, giving space for creativity.
Page admins will be able to interact with Facebook as a page, not as an individual. Admins will also see a whole new news feed, that will display the most important news from the pages they’ve “liked”.
Admins will have until March 10 to switch over though, before Facebook automatically updates every page to the new design.
