March 4, 2010 (Newswire.com) - inQbaby announced the launch of Twalky's "Web Win" competition for people who is interested to create a location-based social network for their schools and/or organizations. To join the competition, you are required to enter http://www.twalky.com and vote for us in the Pepsi Refresh Project. If we win, we'll split the grant to 20 teams that built the top ranked social networks with the grand prize being US$50,000.
"Given that Pepsi made the move of forgoing Super Bowl ads in favour of a $US20 million social media campaign based on the Pepsi Refresh Project, this move subscribes to our view that social media is gaining market share over traditional advertising." said Mr David So, Founder of inQbaby and Chief Twalker.
In addition, twalky.com has gained a "refreshed" look as it prepares for the public launch of its social media platform where anyone can create location-based networks or applications with real-time streams of anything, which include (but not limited to) places, people, events, objects, animals, products and services.
"When we open our platform to the public soon, anyone can capitalize on the social media trend by building location-based applications and social networks based on the Twalky platform." Mr David So further added.
inQbaby is the corporate entity and business creation platform that help businesses develop/hatch applications based on Twalky (inQbaby's technology platform).
