Sharing your opinion about someone or something just got easier as Threewords.me splashed onto the scene today. Threewords.me offers a simple form to collect three words that best describe a person or thing. Created by Boston-based high school student and entrepreneur Mark Bao, the site offers a completely anonymous and extremely viral way to collect data. It reminds me of Formspring when it first launched.
It’s super simple to setup and so “me” focused that both humble and vain alike won’t be able to resist finding out what others think of them and will be compelled to setup a quick account. The question for Threewords.me is whether the product will be able to take what it collects from this rather large splash and use it somehow.
I set up a couple of accounts and started collecting responses in a matter of minutes. The process is simple and you might get some insightful feedback from the responses you receive. You can take it all with a grain of salt but some of the feedback may prove useful. With all the data and noise out there on the social web, a product like Threewords.me could morph into an interesting and simple feedback collection mechanism for people and companies alike. Surveys are too long and no one really wants to take them but leaving three words that describe something could be a great way to collect a simple snapshot of sentiment. Obviously, this is just the first version of Threewords.me and it will be interesting to see in what direction this simple product goes.
