How you can take part in the Duke vs. UNC Social Media Challenge and the Sysomos & Scout Labs reports

Today is one of the most talked about games of the year in men's college basketball. It's the rivalry between Duke and the University of North Carolina. For those who follow me across the social web know that I'm a big UNC fan and even though UNC is having a rough season this year, I still believe they can beat Duke tonight. I believe so much that made a Twitter background bet with Duke fan, fellow NC resident and president of Ignite Social Media, Jim Tobin. The bet is if and when UNC beat Duke tonight, Jim has to change his Twitter background to custom UNC themed background for one week.
