Joel Cheuoua's insight:

Seems like this is the 2394th time Facebook is hitting a wall with eCommerce and gifts.

 

Investors were quite happy about their strategy after they acquired Karma, a startup dedicated to sending physical gifts to friends without requiring to enter their address.

 

The word is that this move was necessary as the Gift product was not living up to Facebook's expectation, and they decided to focus on creating another very different eCommerce experience for their users, working on a "Buy with Facebook" button.

Joel Cheuoua's insight:

More stories like these are needed as there's clear evidence that mental state is critical for those who are battling horrible disease such as Dayton and 7-year-old Tyler Seddon who also had an unforgettable birthday surprise thanks to the good people from New England police department.

 

It's heartwarming, and telling as to what simple birthday wishes can do to make people happy. It makes sense: A birthday is the most special day in one’s life. Enjoy them to the fullest!

Long-term cures for spectacular present ideas hover in that horrible category of paying attention and writing things down.
Joel Cheuoua's insight:

This is a really cool and witty summary of the base strategies to using technology for avoiding falling into the pitfall of common bad gift.

 

We use a savvy blend of these tips in our Gift Genie app to provide suggestions powered both by the crowd and by algorithms.

 

The closing thoughts are also inspiring, especially at the very end :-)

 

"Alternatively, experiences are often better than things. At least they don’t gather dust.

Romantic dinners, skydiving adventures and long bike rides are all great experiences. Or sex. Sex is good too.  Just make sure the package stays wrapped."

The Despair of Greeting Cards - Patheos

The Despair of Greeting Cards - Patheos | Happy Birthday Wishes | Scoop.it
Whenever we look at the pile of cards after any “card holiday,” be it Christmas, birthdays, or whatever, there's a certain sort of discomfort that comes. We have no real need for these cards anymore, we've taken our real gifts out ...
Joel Cheuoua's insight:

So true ...

 

And the priceless money quote: "That sarcastic dog exists almost purely for the sake of staring at you, mockingly, reminding you that someone spent almost as much money on him as they did on your actual gift."

 

One more reason why ecards are a smarter and better choice ... in particular when you can personalize them and have fun with friends :-).

The easiest thing would have been to order the gift card on Amazon's website.
Joel Cheuoua's insight:

Sometimes it seems like technology is moving too fast, and it doesn't feel good. We have a natural tendency to do things in a traditional way, because it's the way we know, and it's easy to forget or ignore reasons why things with funny, geekish names like "cloud" or "apps" exist in the first place.

 

And then there's stories like this that remind us, or makes us realize...

 

Birthday gifts and birthday wishes sent online are taking over as a popular alternative to traditional gift and greeting cards for very good reasons: They usually save you money, and you don't need to worry about delays or problems with postal mail. 


Plus with services like Facebook, it's really a lot easier to send your birthday wishes from the comfort of our homes to all our friends.

 

A wise man said that experience is the most brutal of all teachers. But you learn ... my god do you learn.

Another great story and touching example of human generosity.

We'd love to see more of these!

 

Of course, now the Cleveland Animal Protective League has its own support page on Symbyoz @ http://www.symbyoz.com/pages/06f9d01e-7aa3-41ee-ba15-b4ce7c90c60f .

 

Simply following the page will donate your birthday to the cause. It will be promoted to friends to celebrate your big day.

 

Little things matter :)

It's your birthday, and a friend hands you a card.
Joel Cheuoua's insight:

Yep, this is something we've seen times and times again. It seems like many publishers believes that the more a card is offensive, the "funnier" it is. And the "funnier" it is, the better it will be selected or sold.

On the long term, this unfortunately only reinforce the feeling many already have about birthdays being something not worth celebrating or being happy about.

Joel Cheuoua's insight:

It's been clear for a while that Facebook deeply changed our social habits.

This is just one more proof of that. It'll be interesting to see how the reports that teenagers are fed up with the social networks plays in this. After all, it is still, and I'm guessing will remain for a while, the best place to create "fuss" and be heard.
