Great app for tourism in Japan

One year after Fukushima, tourism is Japan is still struggling. How can we change the way potential tourists see Japan?

Through this app, for instance. Post from Japan makes already existing tourists ambassadors of Japan through Social Media in a new way.

The idea: surfing the internet abroad is expensive, so most of the tourists’ pictures are not uploaded online. The app gives you free internet connection to upload your pictures on Facebook. The more likes you get, the more minutes of free connection.

By the way, it’s just a student case. But still, great idea!

The importance of being sorry

Dave Morin, CEO of Path, is sorry.

Path used to copy and store your agenda from your mobile to its servers. They also didn’t notify the users about it.

So Dave decided to apologize:

We believe you should have control when it comes to sharing your personal information. We also believe that actions speak louder than words. So, as a clear signal of our commitment to your privacy, we’ve deleted the entire collection of user uploaded contact information from our servers.

Taking responsibility is the first step to gain your customers’ trust. That’s so nice of you, Dave.
