PHILADELPHIA, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Choozum, a Philadelphia based
social media app developer, announced today the United States Patent and

"We're excited to have worked closely with the USPTO on this important
registration," says Leigh Raup, resident Public Relations Lead at Choozum. "We
feel Social Decision Making clearly defines our market and is a logical next
step in social media utility."

Social decision-making, as it pertains to the USPTO classifications, is
defined as: Computing services, namely, creating an on-line community for
registered users to create and share public and private surveys, participate
in public and private surveys, acquire feedback from participants, provide
feedback to participants, and engage in social networking for purposes of
obtaining input and feedback from multiple participants. The company says its
mobile app offers a fun, socially engaging, and convenient way for people to
create and share surveys with friends or the world, instantly.

The theory of social decision-making has been around for a long while, though
leveraging such concepts for use in social media paradigms is fairly recent.
More than one billion monthly active users are now on Facebook, according to
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In addition, Facebook asserts they now have
roughly 600 million mobile users, according to the company's fact sheet
included with their announcement in late 2012. Choozum's founders say this
provides for a tremendous opportunity to help people make better decisions by
leveraging the collective brain power of their social network. Choozum is free
and available today in the iTunes Store and on their website
( or People invited to
participate in a Choozum survey do not require membership or the Choozum app
in order to respond.
