Congrats to our iPad mini giveaway winners; thanks for sharing our iPhone app

Thread Starter 
AppleInsider is pleased to announce the two winners of its recent iPad mini giveaway contest that asked participants to help spread the word about the new AppleInsider iPhone app through social networks.

In the five days leading up to Christmas, AppleInsider teamed up with B&H Photo to offer free iPad minis to two lucky participants who helped spread the word about the release of our free iPhone app on Twitter and Facebook.

Yesterday we randomly selected the two winners: Mike Kostyo, a Chicago native and aspiring chef who recently relocated to Boston to further refine his culinary skills; and Jennifer H. a resident of Texas. (Jennifer, your privacy settings on Facebook prohibit us from communicating with you directly. Once you accept our friend request, we can obtain your shipping details and send an iPad mini your way).

Thanks again to the thousands of readers who participated in the contest, and of course to our good friends at B&H and Crafted for making it all happen.

What did they have to buy to enter?

 

Your point isn't wrong, your premise just is.

To be fair, the contest was about spreading the news about the AI app via a social network. It would be hard to verify if say an AI member just posted 'yeah, I went to a bar yesterday and totally mentioned it to 5 people'. It has to be outside the AI community to attract new members (raising ad clicks etc), it has to be trackable and linked to an individual so the biggest social networks are the best options.

If they have a contest for the most embittered Boxing Day forum post though, you might be in the running. 1wink.gif

really? there's nothing in the original contest post that says it needs to be outside the ai community. it just says to use the links to share and retweet. that's it. not that they needed to bring in 5 new members or anything remotely resembling that.

App shared, my work here is done, now to disengage from my social networks, congratulations to the (Continental US) winners.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.
