Facebook 'Say Love You Better' by Wieden + Kennedy

The new campaign for Facebook's Messenger app shows the many ways to say "I love you" with mobile devices -- audio, video, stickers and, oh yes, text

Love is in the air at Facebook, thanks to a new campaign by Wieden + Kennedy that presents the company's new mobile app, Messenger, as a modern cupid.

Speech bubbles pop up over two lovebirds in the 30-second "Say Love You Better" spot as they send short messages back and forth to each other via Messenger. The idea is to show that Messenger can share much more than text — it includes audio, video and stickers.

The ad is running in Los Angeles and Chicago, and the campaign will expand to billboards and bus shelter advertising in November.
