Honda Teams With MediaBrix for a Breakthrough Mobile Social Gaming Advertising Campaign Introducing the 2013 Civic

Honda Is the First Automotive Brand to Launch an Immersive Advertising Integration Within SongPop, Facebook's Top Social Game of 2012*

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- MediaBrix, the only end-to-end, in-game social and mobile advertising solution for Fortune 500 marketers, today announced that it is working with Honda to create an immersive mobile social gaming advertising campaign as a part of the 2013 Honda Civic launch. The campaign will harness the power of interactive social gaming advertising as a way to appeal to the Honda Civic target audience, reaching them on Facebook, mobile and tablet games. Additionally, the campaign program will begin this Sunday, Feb. 10 in order to drive awareness among social gamers who love music and trivia.

Honda is the first automotive company to work with MediaBrix and launch a fully integrated, immersive and interactive advertising experience within SongPop, a popular social and mobile game with over 60 million players developed by FreshPlanet. Honda is also the first automotive company to feature a branded playlist on SongPop, which includes music by the featured artist in the Civic commercials. Through the Music Awards Mix branded playlist, Honda will become an integral part of the gameplay, reaching the large, dedicated SongPop user base.

This breakthrough social gaming experience is part of an integrated advertising campaign supporting the 2013 Honda Civic and bringing attention to the spirit of Honda -- a passion for innovative thinking and continuous improvement. Three Civic models (Sedan, Si Coupe and Hybrid) will be featured in the social gaming video ads.

As part of the social gaming campaign, Honda playlists created on the mobile and tablet apps and the Facebook game will be shared on users Facebook Timeline, extending the reach of the campaign. Honda will drive users from the SongPop social gaming campaign to its official site to drive awareness to and educate users on the 2013 Civic models.

"Honda recognizes that rather than interrupting the user experience, they can reach consumers through social gaming advertising, which adds value, heightened levels of engagement and brings any event to life," says Todd Bowman, CRO, MediaBrix. "Today social mobile gaming has surpassed what television and other forms of digital advertising can offer. MediaBrix has seen campaigns that have outperformed automotive online normative averages by 9x. That's why launching this campaign on SongPop -- the top ranked game of 2012, is perfect."

The power behind this campaign is MediaBrix's SocialFusion and SocialFlex products. SocialFusion delivers a scalable, exclusive integration to Honda. MediaBrix's SocialFlex product offers Honda an immersive brand engagement unit that fits seamlessly into the user flow of SongPop.

The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...
Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
