One of my friends recently posted this site to Facebook.
Essentially, if you are a typography geek, you can snap pictures of cool typography that you see, upload them, and then share the image and location with other typography geeks.
1) Social media is getting ever more focused on extremely specific interests. I envision a future in which you can share photos of delicious burritos for other burrito-lovers to seek out. Or whatever. This also means that we are finally going to have to stop measuring the success of social media in numbers…I bet Typeplace doesn’t have a large user base, but I’d guess the users are very devoted.
2) I’m not a typography geek, but if I were I would probably think this new app was really cool.
Anyway, food for thought.
