Balancing Popularity And Staying True To The Hipster Ethos With Hipsters.com

Balancing Popularity And Staying True To The Hipster Ethos With Hipsters.com
We have all seen hot new bands transition from upcoming innovators to tired and stale sellouts. That’s the problem with popularity, once something catches on enough for the mainstream to laud it, the luster starts to wear away and soon little is left of its original appeal. That is the challenge currently facing the site www.Hipsters.com which has attracted a fantastic audience of interesting people and amassed a huge collection of hip new content thanks to a community of curators who enjoy pinning, re-pinning, commenting and uploading intriguing media together. Can Hipsters balance its growing popularity while staying true to the hipster ethos and avoiding a fall from grace?

“That has been our primary focus right from the start” said Chris of Hipsters.com “Making something cool and catchy is pretty easy once you get a good handle on the available technologies and put effort into perfecting the tone, but keeping it cool as an ever-increasing number of new members join the growing community presents us with a much more complicated challenge. The thing that makes Hipsters so rewarding is the speed and simplicity of our interface, because our community is interested in setting trends rather than chasing them. Finding things of interest on Hipsters.com first, is what makes so many people come back several times a day for the newest updates. That’s why we are so diligent about screening boards, removing spammers, avoiding commercialization and welcoming new members. We find that if you treat people right, it makes all the difference.”

Bringing thousands of new images, videos, memes, bands, products, services and artistic items to the community each day isn’t a lot of work for any one person because Hipsters uses a content curator model that crowd-sources the addition of new content and gives every member the option to pin, re-pin, like or comment on the submissions of others. That functionality and flexibility draws in new users who can make their own boards in seconds, add their own flavor to the community and earn the affection of fellow hipsters by injecting their own unique sense of style with content they discover for everyone.

Getting started is quick, free and fun for anyone interested in staying ahead of mainstream with a witty, irreverent set of satirical compatriots who share their interests and enjoy their time with one another online at www.Hipsters.com

Online Bullying Can Be Just As Harmful As Bullies At School

Online Bullying Can Be Just As Harmful As Bullies At School
If you have been watching the news lately, chances are you have already seen some very extreme instances of bullying offline. College students driven to the point of taking their own lives, high school students unable to attend school and get their education for fear of bullying from other classmates – it’s enough to make many people prefer socializing online instead. Unfortunately, the same always on virtues of virtual communities are also vulnerable to the threat of bullies who take their mean-spirited tactics from the playgrounds and dorm rooms into cyberspace. That’s why it is essential that parents and responsible internet users take the time to find secure, bully-free communities with a zero tolerance policy against any member being attacked by others online.

“Often it starts innocently enough” said Chris of Hipsters.com “One or two people post a negative comment, or upload a particularly shocking image to draw attention to a specific issue or other community member. By itself, that really isn’t a problem, but momentum can quickly intensify the negativity and before long a single user might feel as if the whole community dislikes them on a real personal level. That’s why, after a lot of deliberation, we decided to empower our members by adopting a zero tolerance policy toward bullying within our community. Members who step over the line receive a single warning, and any additional infractions result in their account being terminated.”

Hipsters.com allows members to join of free so that they can pin, re-pin, like or comment about thousands of items added by others. Members can also create their own pin-boards and upload content to them as a way of sharing their unique point of view. For that reason, a potential ban is a very serious deterrent because nobody wants to lose all their effort by having their content permanently deleted along with their online persona for the sake of poking fun at others.

“The results have definitely been positive” said Chris “That’s why we are so pleased to be able to invite everyone to join us on Hipsters, whether your taste conforms to the mainstream or sets its own unique tone… at Hipsters.com everyone is welcome!”

Hipsters.com Takes Strong Stance Against Bullying

Stop the bullying and hurting people

Live


In light of the recent rash of bullying stories that have broken into the news headlines of late, Hipsters.com has announced a zero tolerance policy with regard to bullying by community members with regard to matters of race, weight, sexual orientation, geographical location, age and several other potential characteristics that bullies often target when attacking others online. The policy is being lauded as one of the most progressive anti-bullying moves made by any major website community and hopefully will become a model that other sites serious about the enjoyable user experience of their visitors will follow soon enough.

Bullying has reached epidemic proportion in high schools, college campuses and online communities over recent years. The results can be much worse than an awkward amount of attention focused on some area of minor embarrassment. Unfortunately, all too often, bullying has caused otherwise ordinary happy people to take extreme measures aimed at isolating themselves or even worse, taking their own lives in noteworthy cases that have lead to heartache, criminal penalties and a growing concern about the youth of this generation lacking basic compassion and civility.

“By our nature, Hipsters are people with an inherent ability to set trends and change attitudes toward many aspects of daily life” said Chris of Hipsters.com. While influencing pop culture, music styles and online culture is a fun way to enjoy an afternoon, we recognize we also have a deeper responsibility to look after people who may become bullied by others. Too often it is the creative, innovative, satirical Hipsters who become the target of less enlightened bullies. Our new anti-bullying policy is simply aimed at giving everyone a strong sense of safety and security on our site.”

Hipsters.com gained popularity quickly when it attracted a large online community of stylish trend setters to a community centered around a simple but very powerful pin-board interface. Members can pin, re-pin, like or comment on the items submitted by everyone else, or take the next step and become a content curator uploading content for others to enjoy. Hipsters.com is free to join, and now as a matter of policy it’s also always bully-free as well.

Is It Possible To Be Underground Cool And Mainstream Hot At The Same Time?

Is It Possible To Be Underground Cool And Mainstream Hot At The Same Time?
As the number of ways that people access media continues to grow, some sociologists believe we are embarking on a completely new paradigm for trendsetting, where trends take hold for different demographic groups by utilizing entirely different paths to find popularity. A recent example is the wildly popular viral video for Gangnam Style that has now become the most watched video on YouTube ever and made Psy a household name among music fans on a global scale almost overnight. The most intriguing part of the story is the way that mainstream sites like Reuters and YouTube have created one kind of fan base for the pop singer from Seoul while online portals and pin-boards like Hipsters.com have cultivated an underground audience at the same time.

In previous eras the notion of a one-hit-wonder was a fact of life. Many singers, movies and other forms of entertainment would attract trendsetters until they achieved critical mass, but once they did they would take on a mainstream popularity and quickly fall on deaf ears of the hipsters who caused the initial popularity in the first place.

However all of that appears to be changing as Psy and many other media sensations seem to be lasting longer, staying hot and keeping cool at the same time. “Our audience is pretty far ahead of the mainstream” said Chris of Hipsters.com “By the time commercialized media outlets have heard of Psy or caught on to what they think is a new meme, our community has likely moved on and found something even more hip to feed our hunger for quality entertainment. The cool thing is, there isn’t this copycat resentment anymore because our site is able to reward those who share intriguing ideas or content, without castigating anyone for catching onto a trend later on with a the long-tail point of view. It’s all the excitement of the next new thing, with none of the labeling or cliquish behavior that turns people off to sharing.”

The result is that a global smash like Gangnam Style can rack up millions of views each day, cause a company like D I Corp (owned by Psy’s father) to double in stock price since July – and still stay relevant among the nonconformist crowd of early adopters who now make www.Hipsters.com their online home.

Hipsters.com Has The Feel Of A Modern Speakeasy Quickly Taking Root

Hipsters.com Has The Feel Of A Modern Speakeasy Quickly Taking Root
These days retro has become cooler than ever thanks to a rejuvenated interest in the speakeasy era of the 1920s, due in part to the success of period piece films and television shows like Boardwalk Empire that take place during a time with similar economic conditions to the present day. The culture, fashion and style has captured the attention of millions of hipsters because of the counter-culture underground feel that private clubs, backroom bars and clandestine hideouts represent. Now that same secret society swagger is being reborn in a new way thanks to www.Hipsters.com, a mash-up website that mixes the modern pin-board technology available today with the ultra hip community vibe of an era gone by nearly a century ago.

“Everybody has fantasized at one point or another about joining an underground community and skirting bogus social mores to hang with friends and share a few drinks in a posh speakeasy” said Chris of Hipsters.com “Why conform to the will of the masses when they are so often a misguided collection of rudderless meanderers chasing bland ideals and contributing little or nothing to the culture we cherish. Hipsters.com is different, not just because of the sleek interface, but rather because of the cutting-edge community of content curators using the site to share ideas, services, products and style together.”

Intriguing movies and videos you may not have heard of before, hot new bands bubbling up to the surface, gorgeous artistic images and plenty of satirical humor, memes and more – a visit to Hipsters.com from any computer, tablet or mobile handheld device is exactly the kind of inspiration that interesting people need to ignite their passion for the arts, entertainment and nostalgia. Whether you are seeking the next cool thing, or something so evocative that it has stayed cool for more than a century already, the Hipsters.com community has already created plenty of food for thought that you can pin, re-pin, comment on or add to with your own free account. Signing up takes seconds, but plan to stick around a very long time with so much to see, hear and enjoy.
