OneTrueFan added to TFF
December 23, 2010 Commissar Ploss
I’ve added a neat new feature to the site, for us as a community to engage with one another. It’s called OneTrueFan. Simply put, it’s a way for all the people who visit and read The Founding Fields to connect with one another and show that they like the site, not just by using the Google Friend Connect app.
Here’s a brief snippet of what OneTrueFan is:
In its current form, the Web is a largely uninhabited world, where people can only see each others’ artifacts and the vast majority of us never leave an imprint on our favorite sites.
OneTrueFan was born out of two ideas: 1) experiences are better when shared and 2) changing human behavior is next to impossible. Our first service enables people to automatically show up on the pages they visit. Other people can then discover them and interesting new content.
OneTrueFan is not a social network in the traditional sense, in that social networks attempt to localize an experience and/or lock users into a single social graph. OneTrueFan is the anti-network, bringing to light the communities that already exist at your favorite sites, with no additional effort on your part.
It’s very simple. OneTrueFan will load at the bottom of the page, and all you have to do, is if you read TFF just “sign in” using either your Facebook, or Twitter account. Gives us a better running tally of who visits and what people are into. It’s also a great way to share any info you find appealing here at TFF. You like a certain book review? Share it using the “Share this Page!” button. Simple. ) The more you share, using the app, the more points you get, and the more points you get, the closer you become to being the “one true fan” of The Founding Fields. Give it a try!
It’s something new we’re giving a shot here, and I’d like to hear your feedback about it. If it doesn’t work out, i’ll remove it, plain and simple.
And this feature has a nice addition to it, if it’s ever getting in the way of your viewing the site, just hover over the right edge of the widget and an X will appear, then you can hide it if you wish, with a couple options.
