Fanwise Lets Dallas Social Media Users Trade Tweets For Snacks

Are you a big social media user? A new, social media service, Fanwise says it has just launched a new service which lets social media enthusiasts in the Dallas-Fort Worth area get free or discounted drinks and snacks at vending machines--all for just updating their Facebook status or sending out a tweet. Fanwise says it is developing social rewards technology--aimed at generating social buzz for brands--which rewards users for their social media activity at vending machines. Users simply log into their mobile browser, enter a vending machine's ID, sent out a message--and immediately get something out of the vending machine for free. Fanwise--which is based in Florida--says that the DFW area is the second area in the nation to get its service, which so far has rolled out only in Miami-Fort Lauderdale. The service was created by ad agency Starmark International.
