Question- if one finds the correct answers before the 6th, how does one know? Or, how will you be judging the multitude of correct responses that come in by the 6th??

Suzy -

Thanks for asking! (And I am so glad you are taking part!) We don't have one correct answer in mind for any of the questions above.

(We also didn't "send out" any fake personalities for this contest.)

We are asking to find people in the three given categories with the max number of social profiles. 

For each submission the four of us on the panel will verify that:

- each of the 3 social profiles fits the requested categories; 

- then add up the numbers of the profiles and compare submissions based on that. If several submissions are close we'll review the bonus answers. 

We'll glance over submissions as we get them and will try to warn participants if they are on the wrong track; but we make no promises.

Folks on the panel have the right to decide on relevancy of submissions based on their best judgement.

Thanks Irina. I just think there will be quite a few ties then, but that's OK- I'm having fun already but who knows? There's a lot geekier and nerdier than I out there.... =]

Fun is all that matters! :)

I've run a few contests by now and I suspect that we'll have a clear winner... we'll see...

(and yes, I agree with your last statement :))

Irina 

One extra clarification note on the contest for All:

You should certainly use your free TheSocialCV access, but you can also use any additional tools and methods available to you to find the answers.
