Building a better restaurant review website

Answered => “Should I use “save for later”, “add to wishlist” or “bookmark”?” on Quora.

http://www.quora.com/Should-I-use-save-for-later-add-to-wishlist-or-bookmark

=> My answer…

Moi? Wishlist is an e-comm metaphor. A bookmark is a bookmark. Save for later is probably the best of the three.

That said, it sounds to me like you might want something site-centric. Admittedly not a great example but something like Foodie Bucket-list or My Bucket-list.

Two suggestion if you don’t mind:

1) Let the user categorize what they save. For example, Lunch, Dinner, Drinks. Given the amount of info we all consume why I saved something might not be obvious in 2 (or less) weeks.

2) Notes. Similar to #1 but with more personalized detail. For example, “try the ____” or “avoid the _____” or “invite bob & sue to join us.”

The more useful the site the more likely it is to be used. If it’s just a glorified bookmarking tool that might not be be sticky enough, eh?

Mind if I add something? A morning run always generates new ideas…

Maybe something similar to Twitter’s Lists would work? Those are user defined and shouldn’t be too difficult to dev. Your users who are familiar with Twitter should immediate grasp the idea. Such a UX head start can’t hurt.
