A Social Media Bark-Off of Epic Purrportions – Paws vs Claws [VOTE]

Earlier this year we brought kitties and internet lovers together to explain social media (to the clueless) in an infographic we like to call Social MEowDIA.

The reaction from the social media pros and cat enthusiasts was nothing short of amazing. In fact, the response was so great that we had to see if dog lovers would get behind a “paws” version of the graphic.  Without further adieu, we give to you, Social MEDogIA —

So, as the ultimate test of whether dogs or cats truly rule Social Media, we are sponsoring a contest, a bark-off, if you will. And we want your vote!

Paws vs. Claws
A social media bark off of epic purr-portions – Who is going to win? The Cats or Dogs?

To give it even more meaning we’ve partnered with The Humane Society of The United States and NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans to raise awareness and money for animal welfare and rights.

During the entire month of July, we will host a contest pitting paws vs. claws in which we’ll crown one species — the one which best “explains social media” — the winner!

And to make it sweeter, we’re going to be asking for donations, not just votes!

Yes, you too can donate by clicking here and pitching in $5, $50 or $500 towards the charity pot.

Who gets the money and how? 

We will be tallying the PAWS vs CLAWS votes between July 1 and July 31. Voting closes at 12:01 AM PST on August 1, 2013.
