Taco Bell, Scanlife and Viafo launch ScanSocial SXSW 2012!

Greetings from Austin, Texas! It has been an exciting couple of days here at SXSW, great people, parties and new products. SXSW is all about networking and to help attendees network more easily, and win a few prizes, Viafo has teamed with Taco Bell and Scanlife to launch ScanSocial SXSW 2012.

ScanSocial SXSW 2012 provides SXSW Interactive participants a new and fun way to network and connect with fellow SXSW attendees.  By simply pointing their Smart Phone browser to participants log in, using their Twitter profile, and immediately receive their own unique Scanlife QR code, tied directly to their Twitter account.  

Here is how is the way it works:

1)  Scan the ScanSocial Official QR code to enter or go to from your mobile device.

2)  Enter your Twitter login and you will automatically get your own QR Code badge that links to your Twitter profile (thanks to world of API’s!)

3)   When people scan your code, they will be an instant follower and you start racking up points

More followers = more points = more prizes!

Daily prizes will be awarded to people in Austin with the highest number of followers and you can get bonus points by following others and tweeting from the game. Daily prizes include a package of a $20 Taco Bell gift card, a $50 cash gift cards and getting tweeted by @tacobell to 170K followers!   The Grand Prize winner with the most points for the week will win  4 tickets to the Closing Night Party at the Hype Hotel on March 17, 2012.
