Scenario 01

Problem: How might we make lists more social and shareable?

Solution: Create opportunities for social interaction and shareability features.

What makes Wribbn lists different?

Lists on Wribbn are dynamic living buckets of content!

Challenge 01-A

How can we socialize lists?

Solution: List collaborators and messaging (see challenge 02). Ex: Your friends and you love podcasts! Let everyone add their favorites to discover new content you didn't know about!

Challenge 01-B

How can we socialize lists?

Solution: List messages. This isn't your typical messaging app. List-messages allow the conversations to be contextual to the list contents. Ex: Turns out, your latest podcast suggestion was a hit! Talk about it with list-messages, but the content won't get buried like it would all the other message apps out there.

Challenge 01-C

How can we socialize lists?

Solution: A social feed of everything your friends are adding and a discovery feed to find new people to follow whose lists inspire you!

Challenge 03

How can we extend the reach of lists?

Solution: A browser extension allows users to access lists on their desktop as well as save anything from their browser! Additionally, we created dynamic embeddable lists for people who want to share them on the web.

Scenario 02

Problem: How might we improve navigating between sites on mobile browsers? This is essential to both adding and consuming content on Wribbn lists.

Solution: Persistent expandable/collapsable in-browser tray with thumbnail images to quickly jump between pages with ease.
