PSFK’s Trending Topic: Calling On The Crowd For Help
Designers and developers are creating more platforms that let users call on the community for assistance.
New platforms are making it easier than ever for people to call on friends and strangers alike to solve everyday problems. From an app that crowdsources emotional advice to a literary service that asks well-known authors to recommend young writers, we have a multitude of resources at our disposal that smooth out any kinks we may come across.
Check out some of these platforms below.
Crowdsourced Emotional Advice
Created by designer and programmer Lauren McCarthy and design studio Perceptor, Crowdpilot lets users stream conversations so they can receive live feedback from other users. The app lets users choose a group of Facebook friends, strangers, or paid assistants to provide feedback.
