'Liking Isn't Helping': Publicis Facebook Campaign For Crisis Relief Singapore Wins Top Award

Do Not Like This

A powerful ad campaign that plays on the supposed importance but the frequent impotence of social media has won a respected award.

Called 'liking isn't helping', it uses the idea that Facebook 'likes' in themselves do not help people. Clicking, while assuaging guilt, does not relieve the pain of people in those situations.

The pictures for Crisis Relief Singapore, developed alongside Publicis Singapore, used real press photos with photoshopped thumbs in, aping the Facebook 'like' sign.

The campaign won a Gold Lion at Cannes.
