In a creative social media campaign, media agency McCann Digital Israel has used the new Facebook Timeline design to advertise for the Israel Anti-Drug Authority. Utilizing the split-screen layout, they created a profile for a fictional man called Adam Barak and compared pictures of him side-by-side over the course of a year.
On the left, the photos show a year of his life as a drug addict, whereas on the right they show a year without drugs. The comparative photos of Adam display stark contrasts in his appearance and surroundings, with the drug-free Adam looking happy and successful, while the addicted Adam seems to have lost his girlfriend, job and home.

This is indeed one briliant idea of using the new Facebook feature – Timeline for a campaign. Wonder what will other brands do next after seeing this especially in Indonesia. But I see that not many brands have been using Timeline in their Facebook profile. I wonder why?
