Whether it’s Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s search for meaning”, or Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs”, or even that innate sense of ‘right’ that we (occasionally) feel, there is agreement that people need to be connected to each other in a positive way.
You’re reading this via Social Media Camp: an event where people who are passionate about connecting to each other, fork out a few hundred bucks to talk to other true-believers about connecting! So, let’s agree that yes, connection is good and important.
TicTalking is a social network with a social conscience. We’re out to help people connect with others around the world, based on shared interests: their Things In Common (the TIC of TicTalking). We believe that when people connect based on interests, the connections become deeper and more meaningful. And deep connections lead to empathy and caring, and that makes the world a better place.
TicTalking also wants to help people – all people – rich, poor, first-world or third – feel the reward of contributing to causes that are important to them. Whether it’s just raising awareness of a cause amongst your friends on TicTalking, or whether you’re donating time, money, or effort directly to the cause, everyone has some ability to help change the world for the better.
So, in the spirit of connecting with others, and in the spirit of offering to help others, TicTalking, along with Liquor Plus and MediaMiser is sponsoring the #TicGame.
It’s a simple game of Tweets, Likes, Posts, Re-tweets, and amplification in social channels. The winner has a choice of prizes:
$500 to keep for themselves
$2,000 to donate to a charity or cause of their choice.
Swing by www.tictalking.com during Social Media Camp to get the rules and details.
And in the meantime: what would you do? Will you keep it, or give it away?
