QR codes stand for quick response codes and are a modern 2D barcode that is able to convey far more information that old traditional ones. Originally developed for the automotive industry, they are being used increasingly in today’s society with the capability of new smartphones being able to decipher the code using nothing more that a free downloadable app. QR codes are set to explode in popularity this year, so it may be worthwhile for you to start generating your own.
The information carried is varied, from a direct link to a web page or social media site to, vcard download, event notification or even an email or text message.
