Are you Smarterer?

I had the chance with BzzAgent to try and review Smarterer.  A cute name for a website that wants to help you show everyone what you know.  It's a website that has you take quizzes about popular social media or other products, get your score and then you get to show what you know.  And as anyone who is on social media, we all know we all loves to take quizzes and share the results.

I logged in and took the Bzzagent quiz. I didn't know everything there was to know about being a bzzagent, so it was a great learning experience, as the same question, posed in various forms, would come back up, giving me a chance to show that I had learned from my errors. As I went, it showed me what the right answer was and where I stood compared to other people. That really got me going and I strived harder to get a good score.

The only thing I did not like was that each question was timed, not allowing for a chance to look anything up. Current knowledge on the top of your head only! Not a bad thing, to be honest. Too often we rely on a quick fix and we as a society don't really know nearly as much as we think we do, because quick information is always right at our fingertips.

They've got quizzes for Facebook, Twitter, {hotoshop and much more! Give it a try and see just how Smart(erer) you are.

Are you Smart(erer) than me?
