We all need to learn about QR codes. QR stands for quick response. According to QR Stuff, a  “QR code is a mobile phone readable barcode that’s been big in Japan forever, broke into Eurpoe a while back, and is now getting traction in USA.”  A QR code can be scanned by cell phones and sent as text, a website, social media sites, a phone number, a paypal account and so much more. QR codes can be printed on virutally anything.

Just think about the advertising. A company can print QR codes on different products. Then when people see the product they can scan the code and be linked to the company’s site. Professionals can put QR codes on their business cards. Why type in someone’s email or look up someone’s social media when you can scan the QR code  and get the information directly on your cell phone.

I know what you’re thinking. “Why have I not heard of this before?” Good question because they seem to be everywhere. Check out this video from CSI.
