Here’s an application that just might help marketers squeeze some money out of Facebook likes, but only if people start using the software.
Showyoulike.it enables users who sign up for free accounts to either create personalized pages featuring everything they have liked on Facebook, or to use the app to fill in the blanks in their lists of likes.
This application allows users to make their pages public or private (visible only to their friends), with public users gaining the ability to be liked and followed. The app also displays instances where friends have similar tastes.
When another user clicks on the details box on a Showyoulike.it page, he or she can drill down for further details (public profiles only), and data can be filtered by gender, age, and language.
Showyoulike.it currently currently has 300,000 profiles, 7 million likes, 1.7 million objects, and an average time spent on the site of four minutes. The company added in a release:
Although everybody can use it, Showyoulike.it was also devised for bloggers, journalists, musicians, stylists, or anyone looking for extended public exposure. They can post the link to their site, their blog, their About.me profile, or anywhere else they want, using it to let anyone on the Web know all there is to know about their tastes. One of the great features about this is that all members of the community will have the opportunity to like these wanna-be figures and to follow the things they like.
Our take: Facebook users seems to want to share less, not more, and with the social network’s already existing ways of sharing users’ likes, as well as the upcoming timeline profile, why should individuals use Showyoulike.it?
