Today, Uber released a new feature: requesting a ride for someone else. The new feature is a simple way to arrange a ride for a friend or loved one. With the push of a few buttons, you can send a pickup location for “someone else” which then pulls names from your contact list to choose from. Click the name, then send the request. The rider then receives a text that shares the driver’s name and contact information and allows the rider to track the driver.
Campaigns We Love.
It used to be considered smart for brands to stay out of social issues. No more. Several of the largest brands in the world have taken a proud stance with the LGBT community for Pride Month. Nike created an equality campaign that shows the diversity of a Nike athlete all while remaining true to their values: hard work, inspiration, and innovation. This advertisement highlights Leiomy Maldonado, dubbed “The Wonder Woman of Vogue Dancing.”
