  • Primer: Location vs. Place
  • 8. Precision matters
    Primary values:
    What does it mean to others?
    How can this data make my everyday life more fun or make information to me more relevant?
    What else can I discover?
  • 9. Whrrl is a real-world game with a purpose: to end Social Rut.
    Whrrl enables people to explore and experience their surroundings in an entirely new way.
  • 10. How?
    By bringing together people with the same real-world passions to share ideas in a social game experience.
    Enter Whrrl Societies
  • 11. Whrrl Societies = Passion Groups for the Real World
    “There’s a Society for that.”
    (Over 4000= and rapidly growing.)
  • 12. Societies are Unique and Powerful
    • A community, not a badge - Groups of people interacting with each other through real-world recommendations. Everyone can participate. Foodies, craft beer lovers, architecture geeks, Four Seasons guests...
    • 13. The game - The gameplay in Whrrl is designed to compel Whrrlers to share their passions and intimate knowledge of the real world.
    • 14. Unprecedented relevance - Simply by bringing together people of shared passions, the conversation gets more interesting. Then, Whrrl supercharges the discovery with proprietary algorithms.
    • 15. Society Rewards - For the first time ever, brands and merchants get exactly what they want: the ability to reward word of mouth.
  • Society Levels
    How the game works:
    Users earn points for influencing others, via:
    • Check-ins
    • 16. Recommendations
    • 17. Want Tos

  • 22. And share experiences
    Whrrl users share their real-world experiences out to Facebook and Twitter as photos and notes. Their friends then comment and “like” their slides - a viral loop.
    When friends are together, they can join their check-ins and connect their cameras!
  • 23. And broadcast to the Web...
    Photos and notes are published out to Twitter and Facebook (not shown)
