That one star campaign you did got my attention, so I made Ghost Mode (aka Bubbles) to make Life360 better for teens. We’re launching this hashtag challenge to recognize that sometimes we all want to go Ghost 👻 . But...if this doesn’t work, I’ll be ghosted for good - some investors want me fired 😳 . So blow this up to show them you have my back when I have yours. Best #GhostMode video could win $10K - so show me who or what you want to Ghost (exes, school, 2020)?!
