TORONTO – Ever wonder what the overall mood is in your city on any given day?
One Lithuanian city has found a way to track just that using a new social tool that gauges the average residents’ level of happiness.
Residents submit their overall level of happiness for each given day using their smartphones, or by scanning a barcode on the post advertising the initiative dubbed the “Happiness Barometer.”
Votes are later totaled to determine the overall happiness level of the town – displayed on a huge screen.
The first week of measurements showed an overall average happiness of 60 per cent.
