Digital Life recruits 1769 new fans during IT Show 2011 Campaign with Facebook Fan Recognition

Digital Life partnered Taggo during the recent IT Show to recognised fans of the Digital Life Facebook Page and offered their Facebook fans some benefits from the IT vendors at the show.

The resulting campaign resulted in Digital Life recruiting a total of 1769 new fans during the four-day show.


The increased in the new fans was highly due to the viral effect which is initiated when ever a fan is recognised at the Digital Life Booth.


According to Facebook, each fan has an average of 150 friends. As such, the status update generated by Taggo on the fan’s wall will be seen by his/her 150 friends. Curious friends interested to find out more about Digital Life’s offer to fans will click on the Digital Life Singapore link and will have more incentive to like the page.

Liking a page itself will only show that the fan has liked a Page. This status update, which can be edited by the Page admin, provides the fan’s friends with more details with why he/she liked the Page. In this case here, the fan is promoting Digital Life’s promotion at the IT Show, and thus becomes more reasons to like the Digital Life Page.

The Facebook recommended cost per click for attracting Singapore fans is at a max of USD1.67. Even if the click thru were as effective as 50%, it would have cost Digital Life and estimated USD5,908 to achieve this fan growth.

Visitors to the Digital Life booth at the IT Show were open to linking their ezlink card with their Facebook account and registration took minutes. Half of the taps at the Digital Life booth come from new fans which showed that visitors were also interested to get fan benefits and find out more about the Digital Life Facebook Page.

Besides the increased in new fans, there were also other benefits that Digital Life took away from the IT Show campaign with Taggo.

Digital Life now has a database of Facebook fans who have registered with Taggo and are, therefore, opened to received updates on future fan benefits. When a fan joins the page, the page admin can only communicate with the fan via the status update. Upon registration with Taggo, the fan would have provided permission to be communicated via email.

The counter staff at Digital Life were also able to greet fans by their name. Instead of “Hi Fan!”, it was “Hi Mr/Ms so and so. Thank you for being a fan!” Instead of shock, most fans look surprised and smiled when greeted by their name.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
