MINI Fans Unite! The MINI Mate App for Facebook
With enthusiastic fans and dedicated clubs, the MINI community is about as strong as they come. Now you can connect with like-minded fans easier than ever.
MINI has just launched “MINI Mate” on Facebook, an exciting new app that brings together fans locally or from around the world. Users can share interests, bond over a particular MINI model, plan a carpool or caravan to their next event, or chat with other members in the ‘Shout Box.’
By selecting MINI events a member has already been to or plans to attend — like MINI United 2012 this May — MINI Mate can help reconnect old friends or find new ones. Not familiar with what a MINI event looks like? You can learn more about these by going to the MINI Event Finder.
MINI is also celebrating the strength of its amazing community by giving away cool prizes through the app. The more people that join, the bigger the prizes! So rally your own MINI crew — you might make more than a few new friends.
Get to know MINI Mate. It’s a great tool to unite like-minded fans. With all its handy features, it can be your home for building a personalized MINI identity that gets you connected with the extended MINI community. Join the crowd now!
