Scarcity principle dating
Rather than review a restaurant, you can see and share favorite dishes at a restaurant. Let people know by taking a photo of the dish next time you eat there.
Foodspotters, as Foodspotting users are called, love sharing these photos.
Everything from gold and diamonds to "limited edition" candy bars to baseball cards prove this point. In most cases, we’re not dealing with physical goods, but rather with digital content that be copied or throttled as needed with little to no costs.
The site claims "the blue ribbon (the 'nom') means more because it's hard to get." People won’t give every dish a nomination lest they have no remaining noms to give to a dish that really is exceptional.
Just as Foodspotting encourages people to be selective about their noms, Dribbble encourages people to be selective about what they share by limiting how many shots users can share each month.
Dribbble’s founders don’t hide their use of scarcity to encourage high quality submissions: In case it isn't obvious, the reason we throttle shots is to encourage players to post with care— we hope scarcity induces quality.
