Though cute in concept and execution, I can't help but wonder what the point of this site is.
Just to get FB posts/likes and Tweets? How does that help anyone?
Mebbe I just don't grok social media at all, because it all seems awfully pointless to me.
Don't get me wrong - if my KPI is to get more social shit like Tweets and FB posts/likes, I will quite happily orchestrate it (or attempt to) by gaming the system - as gamers love to do. But at the end of the day, I don't see the point (well KPIs aside).
These 'give a shits' aren't even bound to any charities or donations that I can tell. It's not as if you have to donate at least 10 cents before you can be said to give a shit about something.
It just looks like yet another social media wankfest.
I mean, if they at least bound it to donations of time (volunteerism) or easier (money), however small... then sure, there's a point.
But right now, this site exemplarises the 'Yay! Click this and feel like you did something when you did nothing' mentality.
For my daily fix of that, I'd rather play a rat pellet MMO, thanks.
