Hi Citrix Community!

As many of you know, leading up to and through Synergy San Francisco 2012, we held the Feed the Synergy Buzz Contest, with a chance to win a new Apple iPad or another great prize by blogging, tweeting, or posting photos or videos of your Synergy experience.

To enter Feed the Buzz, contestants simply tagged their content with #CitrixSynergy or CitrixSynergy.

The social media channels were more active than ever. There was plenty of great commentary and feedback about the Geek Speak Live! track, formal breakout sessions, Hands-on Learning Labs, the Keynotes, the Solutions Expo, the Synergy Party and lots of other event activities!

About the winners…

As always, during our hunt for potential Buzz candidates, we kept an eye out for quality first and quantity second (of course, having lots of quality content is always best!). This time we “upped the ante” again and decided to award a New iPad, three $250 gift cards, and ten $50 gift cards, and our social networkers rose to the challenge!

The grand prize and 2nd prize winners went above and beyond to keep the Synergy buzz going before, during, and after the event. This was beneficial for Synergy attendees because it helped keep a great real-time dialogue going, and to non-attendees because they could stay up-to-speed on the activities and the atmosphere at Synergy San Francisco.

The ten 3rd prize winners were chosen at random from the dynamic pool of active social networkers.

And the winners are…

Grand Prize – New Apple iPad

Second Prize – $250 Gift Card

Third Prize – $50 Gift Cards

If you’re a winner for this round of Feed the Buzz, congrats! Please contact me by Friday, June 15th via Twitter DM or LinkedIn to claim your prize.
