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.
