Now Kurt... why would one ever be so straightforward when instead we can get gift ideas by downloading some buggy Facebook app with an irrelevant cat mascot and mine the Facebook profiles of loved ones for barely usable information?
What would your thoughts be on an application where you type in someone's e-mail and a survey is sent asking the recipient a series of questions that would provide potential gift ideas? The sent e-mail would have a heading such as "Someone is trying to find gift ideas for you this holiday season. Would you please answer the following questions?"
The filled out questionnaire would be sent to you with some gift ideas.
It would be an anonymous way to discover good gift ideas. Not, something I would use, but I think its far better than going to someones FB page to look for ideas.
Oh, yeah... and all the information you give will be properly stored, compiled and sold off to the highest bidder.
Hmmm. Doubtful. By the way, Kim, Shopycat couldn't even find you, Mary, or Terry, because you guys don't have any information in your Facebook profiles. You're only ruining your own holidays with your anti-Facebook ways!
Facebook's "Improved Friends Lists" are rolling out, but they're very different from Google+ Circles. The latter are like private labels; you're the only one who sees them. The former are like rooms you can invite visitors to, where they see you and each other. Google's approach is better.
