Why you should be sharing more
Relationships take time to build. We need to trust people, and trust comes from being able to rely on someone and understand a person’s motives.
The fastest way to build trust is to share something of value. This can be a gift, new knowledge, or an article that interests them. Anything that can be considered valuable to the other person.
For simplicity, the simple act of sharing an article keeps you fresh in the other person’s mind, and (if the article is helpful) builds trust between you and the other person. It’s a very simple touch point that anyone can do.
Here’s a list of 10 different websites you can share with just about anyone!
Timelapse lets you see anyplace on earth change over the course of 30 years. It’s fascinating to see how a location can change so quickly. Our favorite is Shanghai, China.
Weave is a simple interactive website that let’s you draw stunning images almost instantly. Send this little gem to the creative people you know and see what they end up creating. We drew the above in about 3 seconds.
Faces of Facebook
Yes, this is all 1.2 billion (and available) profile pictures on Facebook. And every single one of them links to the actual view. It’s a little creepy, but also really humbling to see so 1 / 7 of the planet in one shot. Also, the Zuck is #1 in the top left corner.
Free Rice is an interactive game that literally donates rice as you get questions right. Share this site with anyone that has children in school so they can learn and help reduce global hunger at the same time.
Sell Me Something Weird of Confusing
Just like it sounds, this site will take you to a product that is either weird of confusing. Most of the products are sold out, but you can still share it with someone to brighten up their day!
Shut Up And Take My Money
This is the easiest site to spend hours browsing the endless supply of novelty gifts you can buy. If you know someone has a love of Star Wars, video games, or just awesome gifts, you can find something for them. If you want to buy us a dolphin speedboat, we wouldn’t be upset.
University of the People
University of the People is a completely free online university program that allows virtually anyone (no pun intended) to get a degree. Based on the open coursework of several universities including Harvard, MIT, and others, the education you can receive is top notch!
Useful Science takes scientific papers and boils them down to their essential digestible nuggets. Covering several topics, there is always some fact to find that you can share with others.
XKCD is a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language. With new posts almost everyday, there is certainly something interesting or humorous to find and share with your intellectual friends.
Lol My Thesis
Lol My Thesis takes doctoral papers and summarizes them into 1 usually hilarious sentence. The funniest one in our opinion is “You brain is too far away from your heart.” Expletives to be expected.
