FB launches Mr Miles Game

Just had an email from FB inviting me to join a FB Game called Mr Miles. Not had the chance to fully study it yet but it looks like it is competition based and is different to the KLM game which launches next week.

Their suggestion that the hue of the Golden Gate Bridge is best appreciated from beneath, preferably while doing the backstroke, is both preposterous, and almost certainly fatal!!!

Where can you get hints? Or is it just a "Trial and Error" Game?

I wonder how many people who go to the bother of joining FB in order to enter this contest, and then win one of the smaller mileage amounts, will swear off the FB airlines for life when they discover that they will still need to fly something like 90-odd shorthaul sectors before they can redeem a single one way shorthaul ticket for "free".

I can't help but think that the person/people employed to tweet as Mr Miles would be better utilised sorting out the mileage-earning mess for Flying Blue partners, for instance. Or dealing full-time with customer queries!!!

this game is just a scam to enrich the database with email addresses and facebook accounts

And, of course, you get extra chances when you invite friends via Facebook or email.

I am a bit confused. Is Mr Miles changing his location several times a day or just once? Because based on the latest hint on twitter (grizzli & salmon fishing) I founf the location on the map that fitted the description, but he wan't there ... nor on three other places...

I dont get it either. The hint is:

Salmon fishing takes on a completely different dimension when you do it with a grizzly.

However in canada, where it has a Grizzly fishing for salmon, is not correct. Weird..

The clues are misleading (if at all accurate). My guess is that this is a pure lottery and you are wasting your time even looking at Twitter.
