Businesses use PickFu to validate their ideas, and one PickFu user had a particularly memorable idea – coffee mixed with fruit juice.
The user polled 50 people to see whether they would try it. See the results here!
It got me thinking, what are some other memorable product combinations that probably could have used more validation before launching?Continue reading
What does the future look like? Is it a bleak dystopian hellhole? Or is it a time full of promise and possibility?

It’s Thanksgiving week, and we at PickFu certainly want to wish you all a happy holiday.
Do you serve a traditional meal, or are you willing to stray from the pack? That’s what we wanted to know when we asked 100 respondents, if you could only choose one protein (turkey or ham), what would you rather have on your Thanksgiving table?

99designs is a great site for startups and small businesses – for just a few hundred dollars, you can launch a design contest for a logo, WordPress template, PowerPoint deck, signage, and more. Graphic designers around the world compete to win, you provide feedback, and after seven days, you pick a winner.
Here at PickFu, we crowdsourced our own logo using 99designs. Once the contest began, however, something became clear: even though receiving over 350 designs was valuable from a cost perspective, choosing a winner among them all was beyond overwhelming.
“We’re programmers, not designers,” said Justin Chen, PickFu co-founder. “Other than my own visceral reaction, it was hard to judge the value of all the colors, typefaces, and icons.” Continue reading
A short while ago, I wrote about Twitter’s new polling feature. I was excited when the feature was rolled out to me so I could try it myself.
Now, I’m not the world’s biggest Twitter user. I’m certainly no celebrity. But I’ve been active on Twitter for over five years and at the time of this writing, I have 423 followers. (Want to boost my ego and add to the total? Follow me @kimkohatsu!) My 400+ users are comprised of professional contacts, brands I’ve mentioned or contacted via Twitter, and some friends and family. According to a 2012 study (the latest I could find), the average Twitter user has 208 followers. I’ve got over twice as many — not bad, right?Continue reading
PickFu is a great way to discover pain points. With holiday travel season upon us, one PickFu pollster wanted to know what users’ biggest frustration was when it came to travel sites – finding the cheapest price, or the fact that the information isn’t all in one place. Interestingly, the results were tied, which could mean that people are just frustrated all around! That’s when respondent comments become handy and insightful, not to mention the ability to broaden the respondent pool.
What would you say is your biggest beef with travel websites? Do you agree with what the respondents said?
Today is Veteran’s Day, and one PickFu user wanted to know whether people celebrated and commemorated, and if so, how, and if not, why not. Tell us: Do you do anything special on November 11?

You asked, we answered: Now when you run a poll, you have the option to choose multiple demographic options, and multiple options within each demographic. Want to know how Hispanic, Asian, and African-American mothers feel about something? What about Democrats under age 50? Got a question for iOS users with a college or postgrad degree? Ask rural and suburban vegans anything! Continue reading
It became known as “Bacongate”: last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified processed meat and bacon as a human carcinogen, in the same category as tobacco and asbestos. WHO has since sought to clarify its statement, publishing a Q&A and tweeting portions of it to the public. Still, we had to ask: will eating habits change?

We’re two games in to the World Series, so we asked 200 people who they thought would win – the Kansas City Royals or the New York Mets.
