Washington, DC - San Francisco, CA (Sept 20th, 2011) - OMGiLuv.It. -
The OMGiLuv.It team took home the coveted Community Choice Award at Social Matchbox last Thursday night in Washington, DC. Founders, developers, marketers, angel investors, venture capitalists and journalists gathered at the Navy Memorial Center to listen to 5 minute pitches by each of the 10 finalists and ask questions.
OMGiLuv.It, pronounced ‘Oh my god I love it’, combines social photo sharing with a dash of game logic to reward users for uploading photos of products they love while shopping. Users can discover and share the products they love, contributing to trends that lead to rewards.
“We all have friends who find the coolest products, or set trends. Who always know where to find the best stuff”, says Co-Founder Aron Keuhenmann, “OmgIluv.It is a way to tap into all the local trends and hot products in your area.”
SMB’s Community Choice Award is an audience vote in the form of attendees investing a majority of their $5M Social MatchBUCKS in the winning company. Previous winners include well known companies such as Hotpads.com, Living Social and TapMetrics.
