Hankook has added Instagram to its social media portfolio. The tyre maker opened its @hankooktire.europe channel on 8 June. It said the channel would offer relevant information to interested and enthusiastic followers of technical content and car topics. It will also focus on the tyre manufacturer’s sporting and motorsport activities.
Goodyear launched a new social media campaign to back up its “Made to Feel Good” slogan. The “My Feel Good Place” campaign is being run through Instagram, collecting images of people’s favourite spots from around the world and automatically generating an interactive map. Goodyear states that the initiative represents an expansion of its mission statement; the manufacturer wants to expand the meaning of its slogan from “giving people the experience of a comfortable journey to the experience of that next inspiring, familiar or even life-changing destination.” Instagram users can submit pictures to the platform tagging a photo with #MyFeelGoodPlace. Their shot may then be eligible to win a few prizes, including a grand prize of two Goodyear-sponsored around the world airline tickets.
