UOB uses Instagram to promote campaign

United Overseas Bank has launched its online Christmas campaign, UOB InstaObsessions, tapping on the online photo sharing trend.

Users have to share their purchases using either Instagram or through the app's Facebook function, together with the hashtag #UOBObsessions. The winner will be decided by the most number of likes on their photo submission. The campaign lasts until 11 January and was created by social marketing agency Goodstuph.
