I don’t know if this is insanely stupid or an insanely great move on Google’s part. Google Image Labeler is a game of sorts. You tag the picture you are looking at, and try to match the tag of another person looking at the same image. You have like a minute and a half for each image.
Google automatically partners you up with someone. There is a leader board for the day and grand total.
Now the game itself…ehh not that much fun…but for Google, this is a great tool for them to help tag images for better search results.Â I think it’s a great strategy for Google, now only if they can keep people playing the “game” for more than over the next few days.
