Keeping the competitive spirit alive, Ufone recently distributed the prizes for the Think Pakistan blogging competition which was held last month. The winners received UthFutura Handsets as encouragement for their innovative and responsible ideas which promoted the use of social media to build positive perceptions about Pakistan. UthFutura is a dual mode GSM+EVDO handset which gives the user lightning fast 3G internet speed of up to 3.1Mbps and the ability to make calls, socialize and stream online videos.
The winners were selected based on the number of likes on their entries by members of the Ufone fan page on a social media site. The main objective of this activity was to encourage the telecom bloggers to use the medium available to them in a constructive manner to elevate Pakistan’s image. The entrants were asked to take the lead and assert their responsibility towards Pakistan by portraying a progressive image of the nation in the international arena. The response was spectacular as multitudes of entries were submitted that promoted a completely different side of Pakistan what is being shown on local and international media.
