Creates Dynamic Interest and Location-Based Community for South by Southwest Attendees
JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) - Cliqset today announced that it is powering Austin Realtime, a Mashable online community dedicated to introducing and sparking conversation among South by Southwest conference attendees.
Sponsored by Sony Electronics, Austin Realtime enables people to interact with other social media fans in attendance, find other attendees based on similar interests or location, and share location and online social activities. With GPS-enabled services, Austin Realtime users can check-in and find others from their hometowns or general location in Austin, as well as connect based on similar personal interests, including technology, film, social media, music, or any topical interest a user selects.
Cliqset and Mashable encourage South by Southwest attendees to get the most out of their time in Austin by signing up and connecting their social networks, including Cliqset, Foursquare, Gowalla, Plancast, Picasa, YouTube, Twitter, and Vimeo, in order to share and view content happening in real-time at the conference. Users can also choose attendees they most admire or whose content they enjoy reading and influence Austin's Top 5 Most Favorited Attendees rankings. Dependent on votes, the Leaderboard winner will receive a Mashable prize.
Cliqset, Sony, and Mashable will also host Mashable's MashBash 2010, which expects approximately 1600 guests, and will take place on Sunday, March 14, 2010 at 10:00 p.m. at Buffalo Billiards in Austin, Texas. The event is open to all SXSWi badge holders. To RSVP, visit: http://sxswi.eventbrite.com/.
Cliqset makes it easy for people to share, discover, and discuss content from everywhere on the Web.
