The Internet provides many answers to any one question that we have, guaranteed 24/7. Sometimes, however, it happens to provide too many. Sifting through all 14 pages of a Google search for a simple keyword can sometimes feel like too much effort, especially if you’re in a hurry and need the most accurate information as soon as possible. Though of course it’s helpful to have extensive research, there are instances when we simply do not have the energy and time for it.
Our brains need shortcuts. In psychology, these mental shortcuts are called heuristics. Heuristics help us make sense of the world in an efficient way, so we can take a practical course of action. Everywhere we look, there is a piece of information to be taken in, but our brains can only process so much. If we analyze every single thing, then we would never make a decision or deal with a particular situation. And everyday of our lives, we need to make hundreds or thousands of little decisions. This is why our mental shortcuts can help us make quick yet good choices.
Since we now have access to the Internet and the influx of data within it, how do we begin to streamline our decision-making? One app that can provide us with digital shortcuts is BeepBeep Nation. By connecting people who need help and others who can provide that help, it offers cheap and easy solutions to its users daily problems, including how to get the most accurate information efficiently. A requestor just needs to send out a beep asking a certain question, and he can get the freshest answers from several helpers in a few minutes.
The whole process takes a total of three convenient steps. First, you have to specify a location for your question. It might be where you are at the moment or somewhere else that’s relevant to the information you’re asking for, like a place you’re soon visiting and need some details about. Second, you have to type your question. It should help to be as concise and precise as possible. And lastly, tap the Beep button. Afterwards, waiting for helpers to respond shouldn’t take that long.
How do we know that we’re getting accurate information? Say perhaps you beep this question: “Which is the best dessert place in New York?” The helpers that will give their answers are real people located in New York. The information isn’t previously stored in some review site or search engine, so the answers you will get are real-time.
This feature is most useful when you beep a question that might have variable answers, depending on the time of day. For instance, you beep this: “Is the Tim Hortons at Robson Street open now?” Whether today’s a Monday or a Saturday, and whether it’s currently 7.a.m. or 11 p.m., will all affect what the correct response is. Since review sites or search engines give you data previously processed and stored by computers, the real-time answers you get might differ. On-the-spot responses provided by BeepBeep Nation may be a tad more helpful, as they come from people who are actually in the area and who can physically check if that Tim Hortons branch is indeed open on your behalf.
BeepBeep Nation also has ways to assist you in figuring out which helpers can provide the most accurate information. Users of the app have a green bar below their profile photo called Beep Rank, and it tells how much help they have previously given in the past, as well as how good the help was. A tip for getting the most accurate information from BeepBeep Nation: once you have enough responses, count them. The more people recommend the same place, the higher the chance it is what you’re looking for. Tallying can help you check the reliability of the information.
So nowadays, whether you’re looking for a chill and cozy place to take your date out or wondering if your favorite kind of cheese is currently available at Whole Foods, you no longer have to spend a ridiculous amount of time poring over your search results.
BeepBeep Nation has made the acquiring of the most accurate information as efficient as possible. The BeepBeep Nation app is set to launch soon in selected cities worldwide. Created for BeepBeep Nation users, the EMINENT (EMN) token fuels the app. Pre-sale of the ICO is currently live, plus cool bonuses. Check it out now!
