Collecting toys, memorabilia or any sort of trinket is fun. There are several reasons as to why people do it: some to express loyalty to their favorite brands while others see it as a way to relieve stress. I, for one, feel a sense of pride whenever I add a new piece to my Funko Pop! collection. Either way, it always comes down to how collecting makes a person feel good.
Unfortunately, not many people share the enthusiasm. When I post my new Funko Pop! purchases on Facebook, only a handful of people fully appreciate them while others would comment and ask why I'm spending so much on pieces of plastic. You may have a thousand friends but only a select few will share your passion.
The good news is, there's a social media platform made especially for collectors called Collectors Hive. It functions similarly to Facebook where you can manage your profile, add friends and comment on their posts, but there are specific features that cater to collectors as a whole.
Watch as we go in-depth and interview Frederick Puno, the CEO of Collectors Hive.
