Do People Scan QR Codes?
Do people scan QR codes. I wanted to test a theory as to whether people actually scan QR codes or they just see them as mere advertising trash, and graffiti. I processed a new QR code which linked to an amazon account that sells Nicotine Gum and stuck the code under No Smoking signs around Boston. Typically an individual smoking can be seen clicking away on their phones, so my idea was to place a code in an area where smokers would most likely be located. I managed to collect a handful of code scans which prooved the concept to be successful, but this could have been due to the location in which the codes were placed.
