And we’re back! We apologize for the delay in posting. Access to the Internet was limited with a move to a new apartment, but Comcast came this weekend and we’re ready to go!

For this week’s Web Wednesdays, let’s talk The Fancy. We were recently introduced to this new social sharing website. Think Pinterest mixed with Living Social. Self described as, “part store, blog, magazine, and wishlist,” The Fancy allows users to curate its favorite things from around the web into pre-defined collections. Very Pinterest right?

But there’s more. Users can unlock badges to display on their profile once they’ve taken a certain number of actions on the site. You can also unlock deals, hence where the Living Social and Gilt-like functionality come into play. Simply “fancy” (instead of pin, get it?) a product under promotion and you can purchase it right there at a discounted rate.

To check it out and start playing around, visit http://www.thefancy.com.

    That’s very interesting. I wasn’t aware of the store/wish list potential. However, every time I’ve visited The Fancy their “pins” have just lead me back to pintrest. I think I’m going to wait this whole pintrest inspired micro-blogging out of my life until one succeeds as the more popular.

    Have you years about LittleMonsters? Gaga has her own version of pintrest. It’s all gaga all the time….. too much gaga for me to handle, really.
