Press Release by 2nd Annual iOchoice Awards

Date: December 28 , 2013

Announcing the winners of the 2nd Annual iOchoice Awards.

The i'Ochoice (India's online choice) Awards - Honoring the best of social media in India!

These are an annual award recognition that honors India's best popular short-form content creators on the micro-blogging website Twitter and Facebook. Here, Social Media users nominate nominees in each award category. The idea is to recognize famous content creators in social media & let the Fans vote for best in each #Category.   These are the only social media recognition in India that lets fans vote via just a tweet in real time !

The awards were created in 2012 by tech entrepreneurs Nitin Bhatt (@nitBhatt) & his team,  They invited Indian Twitter account holders to nominate the best twitters in general categories such as Activists, Leaders, Actors, Musicians,  Dancers, news, food, and design etc . Site gathered around 25,000 tweets in 2012. Since than the idea of online polling using just tweets or Facebook updates have been picking up slowly by Indian social media users.

This year response has been overwhelming with 65,000 tweets/FB posts in social media . Site lets user vote just one vote per category hence holding the integrity of the polling system.

This unique polling mechanism lets users vote with just a tweet or re-tweet without even visiting the Awards website , Such polls have been used before during MTV awards, American football superbowl and few other events with twitters technology help!

iOchoice team says that Idea is supported by twitter and they are in constant touch with the company on new ideas in polling area. The team is looking forward to take it to next step in future.

iOchoice congratulates all the Winners & their Fans!
