IDEA #106: Give Friends Awards


I’m going through the past few years of ideas that are in my moleskine notebooks. Some of the ideas are really lacking, but might give you an idea? All of these ideas are yours for the taking. Don’t forget my archive of 100+ web startup ideas.

This was an idea from 2007, likely as a Facebook app, but maybe these days it could be a mobile app? The idea is that you could give any award to a friend — an award you make up that is obscure and unique to someone. Some examples:

  • “Most likely to…”
  • “Greatest…”
  • “Smartest PHP Programmer I know..”
  • “Sexiest friend I know…”
  • “Smooth player”
  • “#1 Britney Spears Fan”
  • “#1 Sabres Fan”
  • Awards & Achievements
  • Allow friends to post them and users can remove them (like comments and wall posts)
