Wal-Mart Launches Social-Powered Subscription Service
November 14, 2012 From AdAge
Wal-Mart's Silicon Valley social and e-commerce innovation hub may have lost two high-profile leaders this summer, but it continues to crank out projects as it prepares full-scale rollout of a food subscription service and a broader application of its Shopycat gift recommendation engine. The @WalmartLabs unit is broadly launching Goodies Co., a $7-a-month box of gourmet, organic, ethnic and specialty snacks hand-selected by its own employees after a beta test with 3,000 users that started in June. Subscribers who are active enough in rating, reviewing and touting the products can get Goodies boxes for free.

Lost a Sock? Betabrand Has You Covered With Facebook-Powered Insurance Program
November 15, 2012 From The Realtime Report
If you buy a pair of socks from Betabrand and then lose one of those socks (within a year), the clothing company will replace the missing sock at no charge — provided you upload a funny photo to Betabrand's site and Facebook page. The campaign, or "sock insurance" as the brand calls it, is a way to interact with consumers on Facebook and a great customer service effort. In order to be eligible for sock replacement, consumers must buy a pair of Betabrand insured socks and have a Facebook account to upload the funny photo of their sock.
