The last thing I need is another social networking site to check-in to! My friends already call me out for always being on my phone and being a Twitter, Foursquare & Instagram (find me: herromelissa) freak! What can I say? I love it! It's fun! And here I go signing up for GetGlue! I just started to explore and understand it and I say it's pretty cool. You earn stickers and you can even get them mailed to you for free! Oh wait, what is GetGlue? You basically check-in to movies, books, music, celebrities, video games, etc. that you're into and comment on it. You can also "like" them and write reviews.
There you go, that's what it is. I know I can just tweet or do a Facebook status update about what I'm watching or listening to but I guess when you're a social media maniac, it's cool when there's another site who will share those things for you with just a couple of clicks and post them to your Facebook or Twitter for you (and c'mon, you get stickers!). When you first sign up, it asks you to pick movies that you like and when you do, that's when the site really starts to get to know you and your future recommendations build off of that, it's a little intro course about how to use GetGlue. Just try and see for yourself! As for me, it's just another distraction, another feed to check on my iPhone while I'm at the bus stop or in line at the grocery store. Get on it! The more, the merrier. :)
