We are thrilled to announce that GetGlue has been named Mashable’s “Breakout Startup of the Year” and it’s all because of you guys, our devoted community of fans! Thank you for voting for us in all the nominated categories. The Mashable Awards celebrate major innovations and achievements in the digital and social media landscape across 25+ categories and we were lucky to be nominated for “Most Innovative Mobile App,” “Most Innovative Use of Social Media for Marketing,” “Breakout Startup of the Year,” and “Best Social Network.”
We have spent the year improving our site, our apps and bringing users together with real-time conversations and have seen an increase in engagement by more than 800% since the beginning of the year. We just rolled out a new and improved the GetGlue app for iPhone and the website which includes a new visual stream of check-ins, the ability to participate in multiple conversations, personalized guides for TV, music, movies and more.
2011 has truly been an amazing year for GetGlue and we owe it all to our 2M users, that have checked-in more than 100M times. We are honored to be included in this list of deserving startups and thank our GetGlue supporters for sticking with us on this ride. We look forward to 2012 and bringing you an even bigger and better product!
