NEW Etsy Activity stream, what do you think?

This week, etsy announced that they would be introducing an "Activity Stream" feature to everyones page.  They billed it as a "social interaction feature" to use while on the etsy site.

I have to admit, my first reaction went something like this:

"Uggghhhhhh! MORE social networking?? As if Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, and Myspace aren't enough? How can I keep up with one more thing??"

And then I checked it out.

I love it.

It shows you when someone adds your shop to their favorites, it shows you when someone adds a specific item to their favorites, it shows when someone features your items in a treasury, it shows all of your sales transactions and convos... and I haven't even scratched the surface of the "Circles" feature.

You can find it above the "Buy" tab:

So, from one huge skeptic to another, I say- it's totally worth checking out. If nothing else, it seems to be a great tool for keeping track of the traffic in and out of your store, which is ALWAYS good info to have!

Ok etsy, pat on the back... again! ;)
