Melbourne agency makes Facebook app for World Cancer Day

For Immediate release

Melbourne agency makes Facebook app for World Cancer Day campaign


World Cancer Day, held annually on February 4th, is the international event to unite the world in the fight against cancer. Melbourne agency Online Circle has been appointed to the Geneva based Union for International Cancer Control’s (UICC) World Cancer Day global account as their digital agency.

As part of their work with UICC, Online Circle has created a worldwide Facebook application in order to raise awareness of World Cancer Day on a global level. The Facebook application dispels cancer myths and encourages shares. The app also gives businesses the opportunity to install it on their Facebook fan page to educate their fans and spread the word.

“It’s extremely exciting and rewarding to be appointed as the digital agency for UICC’s World Cancer Day campaign. It is an inspiring organisation striving to create international awareness and change for the better,” said Lucio Ribeiro, Director of Strategy at Online Circle.

Cary Adams, Chief Executive Officer of UICC remarked, “World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. It is our hope that social media and this innovative Facebook App that Online Circle has developed for the campaign will help reach a larger and more diverse audience.”

To show your support for World Cancer Day, share and install the World Cancer Day Facebook application.
