Viggle celebrated it’s first birthday in a myriad of ways! We added up the numbers and released this new infographic. And outlined our history in the timeline below.
Viggler’s were able to celebrate by going streaking for +500 points with Viggle Streak Week. They also checked into a special “V.I.G.G.L.E.” series of programs for a Birthday Quest also worth +500 points.
We also introduced Viggle Merch! Now you can redeem points for exclusive Viggle merchandise to officially join the Viggle crew!
