We don’t always “like” everything on our social media feeds but in response to others posts it is all we can do, until now… the new Aussi app, moodswing now allows social networkers to more than ‘like’ posts, we can now smile or frown to show how we feel about social media posts. Launched a week ago, the app has gained almost 90,000 members who can now add an emotional dimension to they’re social networking.
This is definitely something social media users have wanted, there is even a Facebook page I wish there was dislike button. The co-founders Jake McKeon, 24, and Ricky Jessop, 25, knew it offers users a point of difference and that they have tapped into a little niche market others have yet to progress to.
Social media is all about connection and sharing and we can now better connect and share our emotions with others on social media platforms. The app has the potential to completely transform social media as we know it and I expect exciting things to follow. Personally this is something I’ve been craving and think will do wonders for social spaces but we’ll have to see how it goes.
For brands this allows them to receive more detailed feedback on their social media content so consumers can be better targeted and tailor online posts, offers and promotions to suit. Improvements can be made on posts that receive lots of frowns and turned into smiles. This should also lead to better market research. While initially getting negative feedback may be disheartening it will allow brands to develop, grow and improve their brand social media spaces.
I hope you would smile at this post. Give me your thoughts on this, and check back soon. Like! Comment! Share!
