Do you think about safeguarding against identity theft on your social media?

Fraud prevention company Cifas created a unique shock tactic to encourage you to strengthen your privacy settings - with the help of a pop-up coffee shop.

The company's 'Data to Go' campaign invited Facebook users to like a coffee shop’s page to receive a free coffee and pastry.

But by providing their names, these unwitting customers didn't realise that with a simple online search, the coffee shop could find out all about them while they waited for their reward.

To the shock of the waiting customers, the barista would then shout out personal information such as employment, age, or even education, for them to collect their coffee.

Watch the stunt below and tell us whether this would make you change your privacy settings.

Now, we all know that you shouldn't shake fizzy drink in a can…

Unless it’s Orangina.

The brand's latest marketing campaign literally turns our shake phobia upside down, with its brand new can.

This unique packaging makes you turn the drink upside down so you can open it - mixing your drink for the best flavour and consistency without as much as a shimmy or a shake.

The clever solution won a Silver Lion in at Cannes.

Apple's latest ‘Shot on iPhone’ campaign showcases incredible colour.

From deep reds and oranges to vibrant yellows, blues, and greens, each billboard captures the beauty of colour in a series of striking images.

Incredibly, the photos were all taken with an iPhone 6s and the visual impact of the campaign has meant it's been rolled out across twenty five countries.

The agency behind the campaign said: 'Each photo is a striking expression of colour that can stand on its own, but when paired together they provide a breath-taking colour spectrum that forces you to stop and admire the beauty of the world around us.'
