The #IchooseBlackBerry10 hashtag has gotten a lot of support over the past few days and it's been showing in plenty of places but to help push it even further, a new Thunderclap campaign has been created. If you're not familiar with Thunderclap, it's a service that if enough people support the campaign, will blast out a timed Facebook Post or Tweet creating a wave of attention. @Confyzone has set this one up for everyone and we need 500 people to make it all happen.

The movement has started, get on twitter, get on Facebook, get on Vine, get on Instagram. Share the hashtag, don’t forget to tweet @BlackBerry while you're at it.

Let’s get BlackBerry trending again, let’s get people to understand they are not dead. The media is wrong. The shorters are wrong. Let’s prove to the world @BlackBerry is back, stronger than ever.

More now than any other time, they need the support from the user base, they need the confidence they’re doing something right. Let’s push forward, let’s #KeepMoving and let’s show the world why we choose BlackBerry 10.

Right now, the campaign is sitting at 60-ish out of the 500 people needed and the projected current reach is over 37,000 people with 13 days left for people to sign up. If the goal is reached, the message will go out on Sept. 24th and hit at this point and thousands of timelines all at once and be totally epic. So what do you say? Sign up for the campaign, I already have, and see if we can exceed even the required 500 people sign up.

If I was paying attention I would have typed #IchooseBlackBerry10 instead. :)

I don't get it, why do we need at least 500?

Kris Simundson

That's what I set the goal at, 500 = more timelines = more voices heard

Thunderclap or storm in a teacup?

Either way shouldn't this be something BlackBerry is doing? 3m twitter followers and 30m fb followers is a darn sight more than the reach this will have.

Maybe it should be #makeadecentadvert instead?

Posted via CB10

Kris Simundson

I'm doing something else for them, just like the leaked software ;) they really do just need to hire me for marketing :p

BBThemes

And full respect for that, but yea they need to do something themselves too, heck even if they just piggyback your campaign they might get somewhere.

Posted via CB10

Warlack

BlackBerry has their own campaigns and is using it's 3 million twitter followers wisely.

They are steadily growing their followers and are looking for new ways to promote.
When you are that big, you need people like us to do "risky" campaigns like #IchooseBlackBerry10 and promoting it on Thunderclap. All we want to accomplish is to get this hashtag trending for a day or so...... They know best when it's time to join our efforts!

BBThemes

If BlackBerry were doing that good a job then they wouldn't need people like kris to pitch in and help them.

What kris is doing is commendable, what BlackBerry is doing is nothing.

Fully agree, I know they replied saying that they're loving the campaign, but I haven't seen them do much, so I just tweeted all official BlackBerry twitter accounts I follow to jump on

While I applaud the people involved in this idea, the fact that it is even needed is a sign of how bad things are.

I also find it somewhat amusing that a year ago, there was a similar campaign whereby users filled in a website asking developers to support BB10 which were then tweeted to all insundry. How did that turn out?

I guess I'm defeated, but I can't help shake the feeling that campaigns such as this only speak to the desparation that BlackBerry users finds themselves in.

In any event, ive tweeted to support the cause. And will be here next year for the next #werestillalivedoesanyoneknow campaign.

Hey! I think you all broke it. It still keeps saying system overload.

bicyclexpress

I don't know why, but this is reminding me of when Apple was in rough times - they had a small, passionate, and, importantly, creative fan base.

I am loving initiatives such as this. And, yes, I second (or third or fourth) that BlackBerry needs to hire people like Kevin and Kris. For once, I would live to see a BlackBerry executive act in a creative, passionate manner. Just go balls to the wall, so to speak, for BlackBerry.

So I stopped by the store yesterday to get my hands on both new devices (Z and Q), and wouldn't you know it -- I went straight home and bought one online. Wow -- more people on the planet need to know what a superior device this is. From the way it feels, to how the OS flows so much more smoothly than before, to how everything is so well organized -- blows sloppy Android away.

It's beautiful. And the ability to add contacts, tasks, etc, directly into the account of your choosing is definitely something which the BlackBerry marketing team should really be touting, to re-attract so many folks who have probably given up on the OS to move to something a bit more user-friendly. WHen I learned that I could add more than one Exchange account to an Android device and could control into which account I'd like to create new entries, I came very close to switching. But no more -- my beautiful new device is in the mail. Even Facebook, Twitter, and Evernote (!!!) are integrated (yes, Evernote!!!).

If you're considering switching from BlackBerry, don't. Folks should really check out the How-To videos at http://demos.blackberry.com/blackberry-q10/na/us/gen/ A great deal went into this presentation, and it sold me! BlackBerry, please stick around for years to come. :)

shawnbb66

When I went to the store to get my new phone I didn't even look at the OS. I just bought the q10 and left. Now after inputting my contacts. Texting and calling, adding and sending texts are actually VERY time consuming... yes I realized you can just start 'searching' for contacts then text or call them..but when I'm in the HUB or in a different app, making an new phone call or text is way more consuming than using my old 8330 Curve or iPhone...I really hope BlackBerry opens up there 'secure' SDKS for the phonecall area...so dev's can make apps that change things for texters...I am not a 'gaming'video'fun' smartphone guy, I like battery life and natual 'phone' usage, and apps that make work better..but I still need Vine, Instagram, Snapchat, for my social life x_x
