My friends know that I'm not a fan of QR (Quick Response) codes. By the time I see a QR code, determine if I want to scan it, open my mobile phone, open the application to scan the code… and actually scan it – I could have typed a web address in. I also think they're ugly… yea, I said it!
Nws pom tias QR code saws me nyuam is quite a challenge. 58% of those surveyed weren't familiar with QR codes. 25% of those surveyed didn't even know what they were! In the defense of QR codes, it's not all bad news. People will use QR codes when they're expecting a discount and other industries are utilizing them to effectively retrieve data.
A few of the examples I've seen that I thought were good uses of a QR Codes:
- Hauv ib lub tsev noj mov hauv Atlanta, cov ntawv qhia zaub mov tau siv QR cov cim rau tus nyeem nyeem mus saib cov ntaub ntawv ntxiv cov khoom noj muaj txiaj ntsig ntawm cov zaub mov hauv online.
- Ntawm Webtrends lub rooj sib tham, cov koob yees duab tau teeb tsa ntawm txhua qhov kev sib tham los sau cov qhua cov ntaub ntawv cov qhua. Qhov no tau tso cai rau pab pawg los txheeb xyuas qhov kev sib tham uas tau nrov tshaj plaws.
- Xa daim coupon xa los ntawm email rau cov neeg txais. Txawm li cas los xij, barcodes ua haujlwm ib yam nkaus thiab QR cov lej. Thiab cov lej ntsuas barcode ntau dua rau cov chaw muag khoom.
Qhov kev siv tau zoo dab tsi uas koj tau pom los siv QR cov lej?
I also think we're on the verge of utilizing scan and recognition technologies far more advanced than QR codes.
