Google Maps continues to offer us this year the odd way to congratulate the holidays and the new year, both creating a beautiful snowy scene using the selected area as the background and using a snowman who travels our streets as the protagonist.
If we want to create one more congratulation by pulling elegant and serious, we can use ItsAMessage to create a stylized Street View scene, which includes a snow animation, a congratulatory message and background music. To create it we will simply have to enter the address that we choose in Google Street View so that the animation is created in that environment, in which we can zoom and that we can freely view. When we finish creating the greeting, we can send it via URL to family and friends.
For those who opt for a more casual greeting, we can create our message from Facebook in Thorntons Facebook Christmas Message, an app for the social network in which the famous chocolate company Thorntons invites us to create a Christmas greeting also using the Street View environments and starring the snowman, with animation and the corresponding personalized message.
At animoto.com there are also ways to create a video as a greeting card, as you can see here:
As you can see, it does not take sophisticated services to send a nice online congratulation, it only takes a little creativity and the right online tool… and the latter we have plenty of options.
