The modern era of instant gratification

We live in a quick-paced modern society. We have access to instant information from our computers and phones. We can keep in contact with long-lost friends and family members with just a few clicks, no matter what we’re using to connect. While we’re shopping online, we can see instant reviews from other satisfied or dissatisfied customers. These type of instant responses help us make important and everyday decisions. With this in mind, Thumb 3.0 offers a valuable service for those wanting to know instant opinions and they’re not alone in those opinions, perspectives, interests, and passions.

Thumb is a social network for those who want or need to express their opinions and ideas or are seeking the opinions of others. It’s easy to use – all you have to do is sign up, and you’re ready to share your opinions and gather the opinions of others. While using Thumb can be fun and entertaining–because you can vote a thumbs up or thumbs down on an unending stream of photos, brief content, and ideas–there is a real professional value in gathering the opinions of others.

Using Thumb in your business

Imagine what you could do with the responses you receive from your target audience or potential companies on an ad campaign or the newest version of your website. Just show a simple picture and let your fellow Thumbers instantly share their opinions. Through this simple, free service, you can get valuable feedback from potential customers. And that can speak volumes, even with just a simple thumb. Once you gather all the opinions, you can then make changes or push forever your campaign or professional movement.

Whether you participate by voting or you’re adding items to be voted on, Thumb will create an instant public profile, showcasing all your likes and dislikes. From there, you can find connections that have similar interests or shared thumb-downs. This is a great way to find networking opportunities and just to form valuable relationships, online and offline. The profile is a true representation of your opinions, more so than any other social network , as it’s naturally created based on your votes rather than how you want yourself to be portrayed.

The newest version of Thumb offers its users real-time messaging, so you can chat with those you find interesting based on their likes and dislikes. Or you could even use the in-app messaging feature to get more feedback about some of the content you posted onto Thumb. What better way to build new online relationships?

While there are many ways to connect online these days, Thumb is a uniquely new option to consider using, both for your business and your personal use. Thumb tells AGBeat that they “believe that the sentiment rich data [their] users share could have a huge upside for both the users themselves and brands.” Thumb is more about getting an initial reaction, as the pictures switch as soon as a thumb is chosen. A gut reaction can usually be trusted, and that’s great for testing your newest form of marketing. Thumb is about instant engagement, a way to share important opinions, and valuable connections.

    Nice idea, but i don’t consider this for my business because thumbs is not relevant or will not give businesses good advice on how you can improve your business strategies. This app is really just for opinions.
