Less than a month ago, In Lou We Trust and SB Nation partner XFINITY announced The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job Contest. I've announced it on this very site in this very post which is likely the only one that saw a connection to Maslow. From January 13 through February 6, anyone interested could send in a short video explaining why would they would be best suited for that job.
Now that February 6 is about 4 days old, it's time to make a decision on who that person should be - and XFINITY needs your help. Yes, you can have a say on who gets the money, the electronics, and the job. After all, this is a social media job, the masses should have some role in the decision process. What's the point of social media without involving the audience? Here are the details from XFINITY:
