Jumpstart Any Text Conversation
Hey! What’s up?
Do you ever want to text|message someone, but you’re not quite sure what to say or how to begin the conversation? Sure, you could just say “Hi” or “Hey,” but you’d rather be unique. Well, I think I’ve stumbled upon a simple idea that could help, but first we need a little history.
Before I stopped using Yahoo! Mail, I noticed an interesting feature in the Compose Mail area. If you clicked the word “Subject,” a random subject line appeared. Sometimes they were strange. Sometimes they were hilarious. Usually, they were unusable unless you were OK with the subject line having nothing to do with the email itself.
Nevertheless, this got me thinking. How about building into messaging apps, dating apps, and even native iPhone and Android texting apps the ability to have a message created for you—a message specifically designed to break the ice and jumpstart a conversation? Maybe it’s a strange fact, a question, a deep thought, &c. Lots of possibilities.
If you like the message, you can send it along its merry way; if not, you can repeat the process and have a new message created for you. Now you can stand out and be more interesting than the person who just starts everything with “Hey, what’s up?”
