The Secret, Selfish Side Of Social-Curation Sites | Fast Company

The Secret, Selfish Side Of Social-Curation Sites | Fast Company | Non-Profit Social Media | Scoop.it

The arguement here is that social curation sites such as Pinterest are not actually social - they're selfish. Humans are naturally self-serving, so I don't view this viewpoint with too mush surprise. However, I think it is this ability to draw attention to ones self that drives the incredible growth of these social sites - personal gamification if you will. After all, who wouldn't want more RTs, friends and followers?

Pinterest: Is It A Facebook Or A Grokster?

Pinterest: Is It A Facebook Or A Grokster? | Non-Profit Social Media | Scoop.it

Skeptics are predicting that Pinterest may be walking the fine line between content sharing and theft. I would argue that none of a users "pins" are stolen images, but rather a visual bookmark. After all, aren’t all of these pretty images linking back to the original owner’s website? Web traffic, social sharing, and SEO sound like pretty good things to me – so what’s the problem?

Louis Vuitton QR Code | Non-Profit Social Media | Scoop.it

QR-codes can be a benefit to your customer - when used correctly. I can think of multiple occasions I've been reading a sign or poster and uttered the phrase "wish they had a QR-code". However, sometimes it can be more of a deterant than anything. This is one of those times.

 

Remember folks, user-experience matters!
