Pokémon GO

Assume we are not far off seeing Pokémon GO being used for location advertising (i.e a Pokémon being located infront of a Mcdonald's).

Anyone seen any evidence of this yet? will certainly change the advertising world.

If you see someone walking down a street like a zombie, staring at their mobile...ask them.

This is definitely not for me.

It's actually getting people off their [-Censored-], going outside, exercising and socialising. I don't see the problem.
