I do realize though, that lots of people don’t. Most of my friends get bored with long boring stuff. They much prefer to watch Youtube or looks a cute pictures of cats or something.
So how do you teach people like that useful things, like how to look after their dogs correctly? Answer: Dogbook.
It’s a Facebook app which combines cute pictures, jokes and useful dog care advice.
Overall I give this app a solid B+.
My little quibbles with this app are:
- For all of its’ Facebookiness it’s not very interactive. You get to consume the content but you can’t really contribute other then an occasional ‘Like’ or a one line comment.
- The amount of advertising is staggering. Everything has an add in it, even informational stuff. So you never know if you are getting unbiased advice or a marketing material from some dog food company.
Nevertheless, I like the idea of using social networking time to teach people helpful advice.
Just remember – the website you are currently reading (published by me – Dr Vadim) is unbiased and completely advertising-free 🙂
