Ok who remembers those Where’s Waldo books as a child? Those were always fun to do, as you looked all over trying to find him. We thought it would be a good idea to do that on G Style. This one is currently open to our New York City readers, but if it is successful, maybe we’ll do a country tour, you never know. Now in today’s day and age, how would we do a Where’s Waldo? With social media of course! So here is how we are going to do this
Since most of us are busy and locked in buildings during the week, we decided to make this a fun weekend thing. Each weekend (not ever single weekend) our Mr. G Style will be wearing these headphones and hopping all around Manhattan throughout the day. It will be your job to find him. If you do, you win a prize! Simple as that. Find Mr. G Style and win some cool stuff. Each week that we decide to do a Where’s Mr. G Style we’ll put up a post on that Friday with the product we will be giving away and the times we will be in game mode. If you find Mr. G Style (and approach him saying hi or something) you win! If no one wins the prize that day, it will continue the next weekend until someone wins it. Ok now Manhattan is a big place, so how will you find Mr. G Style? Look for these social media clues:
Foursquare – Friend us on Foursquare, our account is http://foursquare.com/user/gstylemagazine. When we are in game mode, as we hop along Manhattan we will be checking in to various places. When we check in to a spot, we’ll hang around for some time (till we get bored) and then move on to the next spot. (Insider hint, don’t tell anyone, we’ll usually be in major hub/popular/tourist areas). Use our check ins to see what area we are in and catch Mr. G Style at that location or in transit.
Twitter – Follow us on Twitter, our account is http://www.twitter.com/gstylemagazine. So if you aren’t a Foursquare use, we’ll still tweet our location via Twitter so you can find us. Also Foursquare only tells you where we are not, but not where we might be going next. Pay attention to our feed for clues were we might head next and catch us en route or at the next location.
We are very excited about this and hey if it is a nice weekend out, what better time could you have while out and enjoying the weather than to play a little scavenger hunt and win prizes! So join us for Where’s Mr. G Style and good luck! Remember this is New York City only for now.
