Guinness QR Code Opens Up Social Media Access

 

 

QR codes are not uncommon these days, but you would not necessarily expect to find one on your glass of Guinness! The QR code can only be read by a Smartphone camera if the glass has been filled with the deep black coloured Guinness. So those drinkers that only like a drop of light coloured beer or lager will not be able to join in with the social media experience. So next time you see a tweet or update describing how wonderful a glass of Guinness is, you know what is going on!

 

 

This is what happens when you scan the QR code with your Smartphone;

 

“tweets about your pint, updates your Facebook status, checks you in via Foursquare, downloads coupons and promotions, invites your friends to join you, and even launches exclusive Guinness content.”
