QR Codes help connect people to websites, check this out!

QR Codes
Many of you might already know about thesebut I just recently found out how easy it is to create your own QR Codes that can then be saved as an image and placed in publications, on web sites or just about anywhere. With a QR Code reader app on your smart phone all you do is scan in the code and you are taken to the web site. I have created 4 QR Codes below that will take you to this blog, the national Smokey Bear web site, Virginia's Firewise website and the Southern Wildfire Prevention website. Try them out, share with your friends. This really opens up a whole new aspect of social media.

Good Luck.

Although initially used for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes are now used in a much broader context, including both commercial tracking applications and convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile phone users (known as mobile tagging). QR codes can be used to display text to the user, to add a vCard contact to the user's device, to open a URI or to compose an email or text message. Users can also generate and print their own QR codes for others to scan and use by visiting one of several free QR code generating sites
