What is Fancy ?
Looking for something a little different ? Have you heard of Fancy ?
Here at Siren Media Marketing we come across a lot of new developments in Social Media Marketing.
While doing research, we found some similar sites attempting to rival Pinterest. You had to know there would be competition. The one that we are talking about today, launched in February of 2012, with just over 200,000 members.
We thought was worth talking about. It`s called Fancy. Have you heard about it ?
Fancy seems to be gaining steam and making the most noise. And is presently being called Pinterest`s competitor.
It was recently reported that Apple is in serious talks to buy the Fancy site. FYI, Fancy has backers that just happen to be co-founders of Twitter and Facebook.
So what is Fancy?
Fancy is a site that is really easy to use and the concept is very simple.
When you come across something that you like just hit the Fancy it button.
According to the Fancy site. Fancy is part store, blog, magazine and wish list. You create a collection of what you love.
The site promotes it’s a place to :
Look for things that you may like and when you find something , you just click on the fancy it button and it is added to your catalog into your account.
After looking at the site there are some things that we really like, the HD pics are great. It just seems more stream-lined-not as clunky as Pinterest. We don`t really think it`s like Pinterest at all. So you can collect photos of things you like, you can share them in other Social Media Platforms and Blogs like Tumblr, Or you can buy what you like. And right off the site. There is a drop down menu to select the quantity of the product and into your shopping cart it goes.
All in all, there are a lot of cool things about this site that we really like. You just have to check it out and browse for yourself.
Time will tell where this will all go. We would love to hear from you if you have an account.
