PicBadges Game on Facebook

Our PicBadges is ready and available now on our Facebook site. This is our little badge that can be easily applied as anyone’s Facebook profile picture. What is it exactly and what is it good for? In the beginning of September we are launching our next Facebook game which will be related to this badge, of course!

What do you have to do?
Put our badge as your profile picture with the help of our PicBadges application (just follow the PicBadges steps) and leave it there until the end of September. Those who display our badge as their profile picture during this period, will be able to enter our sweepstakes and the chance to win some presents on September 30, 2011.

To make this easier for you, here is some help:
1. Enter our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cassiopeiasafari
2. Click on the link with the claret arrow on our Wall.

3. In the new window on the left click on the yellow “Add to profile picture” icon.
4. Select Facebook.
5. Allow access to your Facebook profile.

6. Set the picture in the next window, publish it on Facebook and choose this picture as your profile picture.
7. And you are all set! :)

You do not have to tell us you have done this as we are going to see it but if you feel like sharing, go ahead and write to us on our Facebook site!

Time period of the game: September 1 – 30, 2011

Everyone is welcome to take part in the game who is a friend of the Cassiopeiasafari Facebook page!!! If you have any questions about this little procedure, we will help! If you are stuck, report it here or on Facebook.

PS: Your old picture is among the profile pictures, so you can change it back any time.

Play and Win – Announcing the results

There was an amazing race for “likes” on our Facebook group page this past week. The prize was an Egyptian diving safari for 2. A tremendous number of “likes” were given to the pictures as we were witnesses to a serious head-to-head race. Only a few hours before the end of the race, it still seemed like the dice may turn…

Let’s start with the most important – the esteemed winner of our game is Stepan Shulga, collecting a total of 654 “likes”. Once again congratulations to Stepan and his substantial voting group of friends :-) . We wish you a great safari filled with lots of things to see! We have already contacted the winner and he can be on his way with a friend to their well-deserved prize of Egyptian safari!

The Winner:

Just to recap:

We called on all our diver and non-diver members between June 8 and 14 to upload pictures onto our Facebook group site with the writing “Andromeda safari” displayed, preferably in the most creative ways. After that things got simple as all was to be done was to collect enough “Likes” to reward the owner of the most enduring and lasting picture with the most “Likes” with an Egyptian safari for 2.

We can say with certainty that our game has reached its purpose – we were able to make a player happy and at the same time we were able to liven up our Facebook community in a usual but effective way. We thank for this all the ones who had posted the pictures and all those who had voted! Of course we are curious to hear about your experiences, suggestions and what you thought of the game.
