THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED Earlier this year BA launched its #HomeAdvantage campaign encouraging people to stay at home and support Team GB during the Olympics instead of heading abroad. With millions of people tuning in to see Jessica Ennis win Gold in the Women's Heptathlon, it’s clear many took BA's advice and have played the home advantage.
If you’ve been following the Olympics and are a smartphone fan, you may have been voicing your support on Twitter.
BA has created a Social Symphony, a unique tool that measures the mood of the country by tracking social media chatter related to Team GB and turning it into a sound wave (below). The Social Symphony changes depending on the chatter, becoming louder when more people react to an event, be it Athletics or Cycling. Check it out on the BA website.
If you want to be part of the Olympic action we’ve got two tickets to the Women’s Volleyball taking place at 3pm on Thursday August 9th at Earls Court, London. To win just Tweet the following:
‘I want to win the @Recombu competition to join the @British_Airways #HomeAdvantage Social Symphony http://bit.ly/Tc9DY0 #BASP’
The competition closes at 11.59pm on August 7th 2012 - today. The winner will be picked by an independent judge and contacted by 11am on August 8th 2012. Please be aware you must be able to make your own way to London, because transport, accommodation and costs are not included. Check out the full terms and conditions below.
Even if you don’t win, you can still be part of BA’s Social Symphony, by getting on Twitter and showing support for Team GB using the hashtag #homeadvantage.
UPDATE: This competition was won by Benjamin Beavan and Eleanor Cooke
