Once in awhile something new comes along that just feels right. It feels exciting. It is bubbling with potential.
I was reading Ad Age Digital where I go for new and unique ideas from today’s leading advertising and marketing experts. I opened the article “What Brands Can Learn from a Weiner,” which I found mildly interesting.
I scrolled down to the comments and discovered a person who left a video message. I clicked the link but instead of going to YouTube or the person’s site, the guy appeared in a bubble. I also found that no matter where you scroll on the page, the bubble moves to stay in view. I know that’s nothing new, but the idea of a bubble video comment is just too cool.
I wanted more so I clicked on the article’s author, David Armano. It took me to his blog, Logic + Emotion and after a little poking around, I found he was intrigued by the bubble, too, and had a link to the service’s site, Bubble Comment.
The first thing that came to mind is testimonials from students on our Mansfield University home page. On our Admissions page. Department pages. Alumni testimonials or messages.
The free version allows messages up to 30 seconds. . . .Well, you can check out the services and limitations.
Let me know if you can think of other applications.
