Overview

Description

uno developed a service with which consumers would be able to show the gap between their real life and online persona, through an analysis made to look at their social media activity, all with the simple click of a button. The service is the result of the combination of a personality analysis algorithm developed by Tokyo University, comments posted on Facebook and Twitter and “deep learning” (The deep learning characteristic parameters were sampled from the outcome of personality analysis tests taken by several hundred subjects and the resulting difference between those results and their social media persona). A process that normally takes 30 minutes was reduced to a single click.When users see this, they realize the gap between their real and online selves. We used “WEB GL” technology to realize this process in real time.

Execution

After making the service public, the release created a media buzz. Furthermore, one month later we released a summary of the Social Media behaviour, trends etc. collected from the young people’s data, adding even more momentum to the buzz.

Outcome

This service spread amongst young consumers like wildfire. In the first two weeks, 100 000 people tried it out. The campaign was also shared over 200 media outlets.

Furthermore, through the coverage of the various types of media of our campaign, news media brought renewed attention to the existing “Social Media Dependence” problem in Japan. As a result, this grew into a PR campaign that would become an opportunity for young people of course, but also the entire country of Japan, to re-evaluate how people view social media and their relationship with it.

To uno’s great delight, uno products were put up front in stores, a 5% increase compared to last year, making it into a campaign that highly benefited the brand.
