In about a week I will gain access to one of the most compelling social media sites. I’ve looked over the shoulder of a user and have seen a digital experience that is…
with shades of ebay, craigslist, Amazon, The Sims, and an on-line casino…
…plus it’s adorable.
My daughter has decided that for my birthday I need a Webkinz stuffed animal of my very own. Kids like the plush critters but the real appeal is the code number that comes with each beast, the ticket to the online the Webkinz World website.
Doesn’t look like I’ll be teaching my girl to field a fly ball, so what the heck, I’ll meet her in the Webkinz World trading room where we can barter away all the stuff we’ve bought with the Kinzcash we’ve earned.
And along the way I’m going to get handle on a starter social media experience that is somewhere between inspired and diabolical.
I’m hoping for the Bulldog.
