Microsoft has a new strategy to market its Kin cell phone.

It is using social network sites like Facebook and Twitter to give clues so people can find their way to free concerts.

The company hopes to market the phone for teens and twenty-somethings who are more likely to text and tweet.

Shows have already taken place in San Francisco and New York, and one will take place later this month in Chicago.
