Last year alone, John Lewis got 50,000 tweets that were intended for the retailer. Twitter UK’s holiday film shares this story, along with the #NotARetailStore hashtag.

Intentionally Limited Social Apps – 'Fampack' Lets You Interact with Those You Cherish Most (TrendHunter.com)

‘Fampack’ Lets You Interact with Those You Cherish Most Social networks allow consumers to keep up with what virtually everyone they’ve ever met are up to but can sometimes have an overwhelming amount of info, so the ‘Fampack’ app is positioned as a scaled-down alternative.

The app works by allowing users to add up to 20 friends and family members to their network rather than sifting through potentially hundreds of acquaintances on traditional networks. Posts that users upload don’t have a like button, but instead have a link that opens up a chat to let the two parties talk with one another to strengthen their relationship in an organic manner.

The ‘Fampack’ app acts as a way to make the existing relationships you have with those closest to you stronger to stop putting out energy in the wrong directions.
