How Far Are You From a Shark? Travelocity Can Help
Travel Site Capitalizes on Shark Week Fever With Interactive Site
Aug 11, 2014
If sharks really freak you out, Travelocity can help. Massive dorsal fins are on everyone's mind in the US this week, thanks to Discovery Channel's Shark Week, so the travel booking site created HowFarAmIfromSharksRightNow.com. The site shows you exactly where your nearest sharks are, so you can plan a destination based on whether you fear or love the creatures. Pins on the map will highlight shark-free places (although bear in mind it only works for users in the US) and naturally you can share all of this Facebook, Google+ and Twitter followers. Agency McKinney created the site, capitalizing on Shark Week fever.
