I was reading this post over on Mashable.com about how Volkswagen has created a couple of major viral video hits that have already received tons of views from people catching the buzz about the new Fun Theory idea and website that they’ve put together. The videos basically show how various behaviors and habits can be changed if a little bit when fun is injected into the various situations.
Although I feel like no real behaviors or habits have been changed with these experiments (I would think that the results are only temporary in most cases), it did get me to thinking about how adding our own types of fun could potentially make some of the things that we while we’re on HubPages just a little more exciting. Of course, there have already been a few examples of these fun-generating things already being added to HubPages, things such as the HubMob, the 30 Day HubChallenge and voting on the weekly serving of HubNuggets. But, I still think that there can be even better ways for us to increase the amount of fun that we have here on HubPages, I’m just not really sure what those ways are yet. Maybe you can help me out by leaving some ideas for boosting up the fun a bit around here in the comments? I’ll give you a couple of my wacky (yet fun) ideas under the videos below:
How we could increase the fun on HubPages:
- Make the writing process more social somehow and allow others to see not just what you’ve published, but what you’re actually working on at the moment in real-time
- Allow for Hub-collaboration, meaning that one Hubber could write half of a Hub and another Hubber couls write the other half with them both sharing the earnings generated
- The ability to share and collaborate from the capsule level
- Much, more more Larry (which we added into our category tool a few months back)
Those are a few of the ideas that I can come up with off the top of my head, but as I come up with more ways to make HubPages more fun I’ll be sure to let you know all about them. Also, any ideas that you have to increase the fun, be sure to post them in the comments below!
