Remind your slacker friends to vote

If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

Check out www.didyouvote.org, a site set up by a Silicon Valley company to help get younger voters to the polls today, especially in swing states across the country. It comes via Bill Foster, a former Excite executive, and now working at San Francisco wireless company Geovector.

Foster summarizes: “It sends a text message in real time to the cell phone of your friends and family from you reminding them to vote…This thing is viral and has been spreading as fast as we get the news out.”
