Those of you wondering where I have been for the last five months, I have been locked away working on a website idea that I am very excited to be launching this spring. The website is called ConsumeU.com and the basic premise is providing user recommendations on items such as movies, TV shows, books, websites and more. Users of the website will provide ratings on items from the categories previously described and based on their ratings, the site will provided recommendations generated from preferences of like minded individuals. In addition to great recommendations, users will also be able to connect with the friends and family and share in the experience. This is where the site gets really fun because in addition to being able to ask your friends and family about items that interest you, you will also have a CU Score with all website users. The CU Score is a score from 0-100 helping identify who you have the most and least in common with based on all of your responses. Ever wonder how similar your preferences are with your friends, parents or children? You will be able to find out all of that here.
The ConsumeU website is themed around University/Education and has a cool professor that will help you out along the way. The more items you vote on, the more credits you receive and grade levels you complete. There are a number of fun features like the ability to share items via Facebook, invite friends and family, plan an activity section, fun Professor’s Blog and more. It is an entertaining website for all users and age levels.
Those of you reading this post I could really use your help. If this sounds like something you are interested in please help me out by doing one of the following:
1) Those of you on Facebook, please become a fan of ConsumeU.
2) If you are on Twitter please follow ConsumeU.
Invite those in your social network to become fans on Facebook and Twitter as well! There will be fun posts and giveaways after launch.
When the site goes live if you can spare 10-30 minutes, sign up for an account and play around. I would appreciate any honest feedback on the site after it goes live. If you like the site, I would be forever indebted to you if you would share it with your friends and social network.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance for your support!
