Community Website Launches “Resolution Keeper” 2012
Social experiment and service to help readers keep their pledges
Abu Dhabi, UAE – A community portal www.tempoplanet.com and youth focused magazine called Tempo have launched “Resolution Keeper” where readers can ‘register’
The purpose of “Resolution Keeper” is to support website visitors and remind them at the end of the year of their pledges, to see if they were indeed able to keep their promises. Visitors to the site can record their pledges or send them by email to Tempo. They also have to leave their contact emails to be reached at the end of the year to see if they managed to achieve the changes they pledged.
Sana Bagersh, the Managing Editor of Tempo and Tempo Planet believes that “Resolution Keeper” might work to encourage people to make real changes in their lives. “We think ‘Resolution Keeper’ will help make people more accountable about their pledges. And because they will be taken to task about them at the end of the year, we also believe that it will also make them more serious about the resolutions they make”.
She explained that ‘Resolution Keeper’ should also serve as an interesting social experiment to see how many people keep their promises, and if they are more inclined to do so after ‘registering’
“We all know that people make resolutions at the start of the year, but do we know how many actually keep them?”
Bagersh revealed that an informal dipstick research taken by Tempoplanet.com of its visitors indicates that the site’s demographic, which is 18 to 35, is most likely to develop resolutions at the start of the year than older age segments.
“But what we also learned is that while some people have serious resolutions, such as “I will give up smoking this year” a large majority come up with frivolous resolutions that they may be half hearted about keeping,” she said.
With “Resolution Keeper” Bagersh believes that those who take time to ‘register’
Resolutions can be registered on www.tempoplanet.com or sent to email@example.com.
