Highlight: The #Startup Everyone Is Saying Will Win #SXSW This Year

Highlight: The #Startup Everyone Is Saying Will Win #SXSW This Year | The Startup Digest | Scoop.it

In 2009, Twitter was the breakout startup of Austin's South by Southwest conference.

In 2010, Facebook and Gowalla stole the show. Last year, GroupMe and group texting were all the rage.

This year, everyone is buzzing about auto-checkins, app-induced networking, and people discovery.

 

The hype is high .... and indeed, everybody around me in San Francisco is talking (and testing) Highlight. Let's see if the good buzz will be confirmed

Thumb Offers A Reality Test For SXSW Winners

Thumb Offers A Reality Test For SXSW Winners | The Startup Digest | Scoop.it

For the second year in a row, mobile Q&A app Thumb (formerly known as Opinionaided) is offering its own take. It made a list of the apps that seemed to be getting buzz at the conference, then polled its users on whether they actually used the apps. The results (there were 4,700 responses total, with at least 220 for each question) are being pitched as an answer to the question, “Which SXSW Apps Do Real Americans Actually Use?”

Now, you could make a list of caveats to the results that’s longer than this post. For starters: Do we really think Thumb’s userbase is fully representative of “Real Americans”? And doesn’t the survey’s definition of “SXSW App” seem a bit arbitrary? But I have to admit, I was still curious about the results, so here they are. The most-used app seems to be Instagram (22 percent of respondents said they used it)
