Here I’ve gathered some applications for QR codes which can be helpful to all.

You goal after this is to build a Community. Probably the most popular place to build a community now is Facebook.

After this comes the Sharing which is the perfect way for you to build community. The great about QR codes is that you have no limit to how, or even how much, you can share with them. You can share everything, from video, to social networks accounts, fan pages, mobile apps, landing pages to items you want to sale. Using QR code to give people a hyperlink from offline world to online items greatly simplifies the process of typing long and forgettable URLs – it is all accomplished in one scan.
