The all-powerful, all-knowing Trustlines. All hail your guardians of good taste.
They're your experts. Your aces in the hole. Each one is your go-to for something – indi flicks, garage bands, craft beer, value wines. Their word is gold. Which is why it's only natural you count on them for their opinions and recommendations instead of your other 382 "friends." However, a handful of experts isn't much of a network.
But with Trustlines, your inner circle of experts extends beyond the people you trust most, and in turn the people they trust most and so on, creating one big circle of trust, giant trust tree, trust to the 3rd degree.
Think about it. We don’t need 300+ reviews from strangers to help us with our next discovery – just one or two "trusted" opinions are where the magic happens. This is the power of Trustlines.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS.
Trustlines are very simple in their design and purpose. By limiting group size to five users per topic, Trustlines empower us to learn from the personal experts we trust most, along with the "trusted few" they trust most, and so on.
The Trusted Few
A very small number of people we know and trust most have the biggest impact on how we discover and learn. These are our Trusted Few. The problem is that relying on these small groups eliminates the primary benefit of social media.
Three Degrees of Recommendation
Simply designate the "few" people you trust most within a specific category. By limiting the group size to five users or less per category, your expert's expert – and their expert's expert – become your experts too.
