The whole rating idea has been applied to people’s rooms in their houses for a new site called, appropriately “Rate My Room“. People post photos and video of their immacualate and gracious homes and invite people to rate them and leave comments.
The site has been set up by HGTV, a US cable TV station and I think it works pretty well – although it’s a little heavy on the ads.
The concept seems to have won people over – and you can see why. People’s houses are often a “passion point” if not an obsession for some. It’s natural that some people are going to want to show off their interior design efforts to more than just visitors now they have the chance.
