Can Baldrige Play with (Social) Madness?

If you’re even relatively active with social media, you’ve probably heard of the Social Madness competition that Capital One Spark Business is putting on.  Social Madness lets businesses showcase their social media skills in a tournament-style competition, played in a series of local and nationwide rounds.  Companies compete by collecting the most online votes at http://www.bizjournals.com/exclusives/socialmadness/ and the most new connections on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.  The winner, theoretically, has the most social influence, as they are determined based on the highest number of followers, fans, and “likes.”  The companies are sorted by size, paired off against each other in a bracket, and the fans get to decide who wins.  Now in round three, many big names are still in the game, including Target, Burt’s Bees, Fandango, Whole Foods, and Remington Arms.
