OK to talk to

1 minute read

br-button2.jpg I have always had trouble striking up conversation with random people, I like to be introduced to someone first to have the ‘Its OK to talk to me’ smile and hand shake.

I hate getting that unwelcome, confused look that you sometimes get when you try to strike up a conversation with a random somebody and there trying to find out what you are trying to sell them.

To day I was reading one of my RSS feeds for BeyondRobson.com, and I came across this story can’t talk to vancouverites about Ok Social.

Basically its a button that you can wear that tells the world that its OK for you to talk to you. A button that tells people that you are willing to take some time out of your day to talk to a random person.

My first thought was who in there right mind would wear that button but over the day the idea grew on me and I ended up requesting on for my self from Ok Social. Apparently the buttons are free “The idea is to make this a friendlier place, not make money.”

Its an interesting idea, I hope it works out and I can’t wait to find someone else in the city that also has the button.
