From the 4th Annual Shorty Awards
Best Use of Game Mechanics (Gamification) in a Social Media Campaign
While some would argue that life itself is a game, the social web is certainly turning out to be like a game, as demonstrated by companies like Foursquare and Zynga. This award honors a campaign or social app that best uses gaming elements to increase engagement and virality. Please note that the entry doesn’t need to be for a game, it just needs to incorporate gaming mechanics such as points, leaderboards, badges, incentives and challenges.
