Likify – generate Facebook likes for your product anywhere


Likify is a very cool bit of tech which lets anyone solicit Facebook Likes for their product or service using QR barcodes printed on real stuff. So for instance you can print out a barcode for your tea shop, stick it on your menu and have people scan it with their smartphones and give you a thumbs up if they enjoy your Earl Gray. Or whatever.


This combination of off and online is just delicious, and we’re giving it a huge thumbs up of its own. It works with most smartphone models and if you’ve got a printer you can create your own barcode/s in minutes. The devs are also thinking of extending the idea to other networks if it takes off. Very cool.


 How does it work? * Generate your unique QR code on * Likify will link that code to the Facebook Fan Page of the product, event or campaign you want to promote. * Place this QR code on your product or promotional material. * By scanning your QR code, anyone will be able to ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ your product, event, campaign,… on their Facebook Wall. * Everytime anyone scans your QR code it is tracked (number of views & Facebook Likes, physical location, … )
