If you’re a die-hard nag, there’s a social site just for you

This slide caught my eye, and made me smile. It’s rather old (for the internet age), from 2009. The Nag is a UK-based social platform for people to grumble and let off steam. But on the serious side, it’s actually a forum for people to suggest green lifestyle ideas.

I traced it back to Treehugger that featured its relaunch, but was surprised  to find that The Nag website is now in Japanese. The original version is probably long gone now!

The Nag version 2.0 allows you to “Get it off your chest”, “Suggest Solutions” and “Do Something”. The idea being that not one person has the answer to all our problems and that we all need to work together to solve environmental and social issues. So, while you have a gripe about something, another member of The Nag can comment on that and offer a solution. Further down the line you or someone else might actually want to do something about the problem and that can be recorded on the Nag too. So a full circle of problem, solution and action is taking place on one platform.
