As if being addicted to Pinterest wasn't enough to keep you glued to the laptop, there's another social media platform that may make you (and me) just as obsessed. Via Arts Business Institute (ABI), I learned of Wanelo (“wah-nee-lo,” shortened form of Want, Need, Love).
Here's a recap of Wanelo taken from the ABI post:
"Wanelo puts a focus on shopping, says Daniela Governatori, Social Media Manager for the new company. She explains that members can upload images of their own work, and sell directly on Wanelo (no commission is taken)."
"Etsy vendors love Wanelo – and more images posted on the sharing site come from Etsy than any other source. Retailers such as Anthropolgie, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 and others are major players on the site." Read the complete ABI post here.
Here's what you'll learn on Wanelo's About Page:
"Wanelo is a place to find the most interesting and unique products online. Products on Wanelo are posted by members. The first product was posted in 2010. To experience shopping ecstasy, simply find and save products you want, need and love, and follow users and stores you like. Sounds kind of fun, doesn’t it? :)"
I haven't explored the complete site yet but I soon will. What do you think? Check it out!
