I am always searching for new social platforms that tend to make life a little more fun or interesting. It seems like the number of “check in” options lately has swollen beyond a rate at which I can keep up. After trying numerous new twists, I still find myself using FourSquare, the one I started with.
So, as you can imagine, I’m a little skeptical about new platforms, though I do love to try them out. Recently, I discovered a site called “Fancy.” They claim to be nothing more than a place to store a collection of the things you love. I inserted a button onto my browser and installed an app on my phone. So far, I really like the site. It is crisp and clean in appearance, free from the clutter sites like this often have.
More importantly, I am excited about the new opportunity to use clippings and pictures to build a representation of who I am and what I love. Fancy might just be an exploration of identity, digital style.
Are you using Fancy? What do you think about these sites?
