One Man, One Million Photos: Kodak and Mark Malkoff Team Up to Free One Million Photographs From Facebook
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) announces that tomorrow morning actor/comedian, Mark Malkoff , will be placed inside of a plexiglass box that will travel around New York City until one million Facebook Photos are set "free." Customers can help liberate Mark by freeing their own Facebook Photos and bringing them to life with the new My KODAK MOMENTS App, or by accessing their Facebook photos on the KODAK Picture Kiosk and creating a FREE 8x10 collage. By simply downloading the app and/or the collage coupon, you can play a part in freeing Mark and his photos and be on the way to creating a unique, personal holiday gift for friends and family.
The My KODAK MOMENTS App is available on Facebook and can also be found by visiting www . kodak . com / go / freeMark. Here you will also be able to find live footage of Mark in the box, testimonials of customers who have tried the app, and a ticker keeping track of how close Kodak is to reaching the one million goal.
"Think about it - billions of pictures are just crying out to be liberated from the world wide web and enjoyed off-line, in people's hands," said Mark Malkoff. "I've decided to take a stand and climb behind a glass wall to see what it's like for a few days!"
"By putting Mark and his photos in this box, we are demonstrating the need to free the billions of photos stored on Facebook and encouraging consumers to do more with them," said Larry Trevarthen, vice president of worldwide marketing, Retail Systems Solutions, Eastman Kodak Company. "We created solutions like the new My KODAK MOMENTS App and the ability to connect to Facebook from a KODAK Picture Kiosk, for stories that are worth more than just a status update."
The new My KODAK MOMENTS App allows customers to free their Facebook Photos and turn them into high quality printed keepsakes, giving them more ways to share life's special moments.
