Everyone is busy these days including the kids. When we have so many things going on simultaneously in our life it is very common to forget one thing or the other. In order to plan our day-to-day activities and keep things under control, we make lists for each and every activity, for e.g., grocery list, holiday shopping list, list of the tasks to be completed before the deadline and it goes on and on. Lists help us to keeps things organized and to clean up the clutter caused by lack of organization. A list which is created with participation from others who have the experience in the activity or someone who is willing to share their experience is always beneficial. Listnerd is the first social media website which encourages people’s interaction and involvement in the creation of collaborative lists. Each and every member can get opinions from a worldwide audience who are passionate and helpful. Listnerd was founded by Erling Loken Anderson – a microbrew fanatic. The company is based in United States.
