There’s just one week left to vote for San Jose State University in the first round of Social Madness, a social media competition developed by the American City Business Journals chain. The contest “showcases the best business social media growth strategies in a tournament-style challenge, played in a series of local and, then, nationwide rounds. More than 50 Silicon Valley businesses and organizations are contestants. Companies compete via online votes at the Silicon Valley Social Madness website [go to the “large companies” tab] and new connections on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn during the contest period,” said the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal. The national winners will receive a $10,000 donation to the charity of their choice. SJSU is currently in fourth place in its division, right behind the biggest corporate names in Silicon Valley including Cisco, Adobe and Paypal. This puts us in a great position to make the second round. Here’s how to vote now (hit the “Large companies” tab)!
