There are very few fads seep from the East to the West with the rare exception of ‘kungfu’ and ‘kimchi’ and QR code which has been widely used by the Japanese on a massive scale has now hit the United States – slowly but surely. The Japanese have QR codes on literally everything they can print on. If someone really wanted to do it, he or she could have a QR code tattooed to his arm or other parts of his or her body. People with an iPhone or those with scanning-enabled mobile phones can literally scan the QR code to have access to personal information, website urls, advertisements, web pages and online social networking profiles. In Japan, companies have started printing business cards with scannable QR codes on them.
A mobile phone without a camera is a rare sight these days and if you’re interested in trying out this new fad, worry not, you won’t be left far behind if you download a very friendly software called BeeTagg to your mobile phone. Once you have the software installed into your mobile phone or PDA, you can literally read any form of QR codes on anything. This is a great way to publicize your own website, business, WAP page, social networking profiles, blogs, websites, etc.
The attitude today is, strangely, this….it’s a fun and very tech-savvy way to promote your website or your business if you have a QR code printed onto your business card. Trust us, if you started giving away business cards with QR codes printed on it, the first reaction you will get from the recipient is this…wow, what’s this, what does it do? And you’ll get the immense pleasure of explaining the QR code to them and showing off how tech-savvy you are.
