Send a Street View Postcard
Say Hello from Europe is a very clever marketing idea from Swiss International Airlines. This Facebook hosted application allows you to send a virtual postcard, using Street View imagery, to any of your Facebook friends.
Visit the app on Facebook and you can view a map of all Swiss International Airlines destinations. Choose a location on the map and you can then explore the city using Google Maps Street View. If you find a view you like you can simply click on the camera icon and snap a virtual postcard. You can then write a message on your postcard and send the view to all your friends.
The application is an imaginative way for Swiss International Airlines to promote the cities they fly to and encourage people to share links to the airline while posting messages to their Facebook friends.
