One of the best features on Socl is riffing. Sometimes when new users come on the site and see a riff, they think it is like a Retweet on Twitter. But it is totally different. Look at it as expanding from an idea. It could be something similar, related or totally different.
Here is one example from a riff between three users on Socl including myself.
Fizaah Faiyaz did a post on “balconies”. It is a very colorful post with beautiful balconies looking from the outside.
I then did a riff on “balcony view" which showed the perspective looking out from the balcony and, since I love the beach, I chose images with water views.
Then Kurvoazie Shir riffed on my post with “balconies without balconies.”
This is part of the fun in Socl. It allows your creativity on one topic expand to your heart’s content. I finished the riff with Popes in the balcony.
The examples above were all riffs about balconies. But my last riff about the Pope could have led to a whole different topic. Now that you have the link, go ahead and take it creatively where you want to. I will get a notification of the riff, so I dare you and let’s see where it can take us to. Rome and Michelangelo’s masterpieces in the Vatican… maybe?
