Looking for a place to show off your collection to the world and maybe find others with the same interest? This might be the ticket.
If you’re a regular reader of Sports Collectors Daily, you probably remember the piece we ran on Squirl last year.
It’s essentially a site through which collectors of all kinds can show pictures and offer descriptions of what they have and also communicate with others who may share the same interests. From a sports perspective, that could be sports cards, jerseys, programs…just about anything.
We’re not taking all of the credit, but over 2600 people have posted collections already–not just sports-related. Network World has more on Squirl including a review of the business model.
Squirl is a part of a new generation of social networking websites that allows users to generate the content, and therefore much of the look and feel, of a site. In Squirl’s case, that content is collections that have long been displayed on walls, on shelves, or in basements. Collectors naturally love to share their collections, and Squirl provides a venue for doing so.
