Get Social With Collaborative Lists On ListGeeks

list   Get Social With Collaborative Lists On ListGeeksIf you’re a fan of making lists and want to turn it into a social affair, ListGeeks has the perfect set up for you. ListGeeks is the ultimate site where you can get your list-making fix, while also keeping up with other people who are just like you. The site takes a simple approach, simply create as many collaborative lists as you want to, share them with other users, and encourage other users to create similar lists of their own.

Since ListGeeks really does label itself as a social site, you won’t find any way to make your lists private. All of your lists and comments are public, shared with all other ListGeek users. If you like the idea of creating lists but are looking for a more elaborate social network site, where your lists are illustrated with photos, be sure to check out Pinterest.

After signing up for a free account, you can get to creating your first list straight away.

Once you’ve completed and saved your list, it will be visible on your profile, and you can also share your list, or other people’s lists for that matter, via Twitter or Facebook. You can also give and receive comments on lists.

You’ll find that there are little numbers accompanying the title of each list. The first number represents the number of people you follow who have done so. The second number represents the number of people on the site who have created their own version of the list.

If you want to create your own version of someone else’s list, when you open it, you will be presented with a space to create your own list using the same time.

Lastly, you can edit your own profile through Settings. You can add a picture, select a color that will always be used for each of your lists, add your name, location, website and a short bio. The color you select for your profile is the color that will be used for all of your lists.

ListGeeks is built on a simple premise and for that reason it works. It doesn’t claim to be more than a site where you can go and create lists. While other sites, like Amazon for example, have this feature built into their services, sometimes all you need is a place to create lists.

ListGeeks can also prove to be quite inspirational if you want it to be. It can be a great way of finding inspiration for your writing, inspiration for things you should try and haven’t done before, or even just a great place to see what makes other people tick.
