What If You Could Interact With Advertisement?
Mobile advertisement is sometimes considered as being disruptive, even annoying. Endless successions of pop-up banners bringing involuntary clicks toward websites you don’t even care about. Some companies such as Virgin Atlantic carried out a new way to engage with customers.
