Last month we asked you to to tell us what you knew about the QR (quick response) code pictured below. Almost 80 percent of you have seen it used in advertising, but 70 percent of you have no idea what it represents or what to do with it.
A QR code is a graphical representation of a website address. Smart phone users can download an application to their phone which reads QR codes and takes the user to a website. The Nebraska Medical Center has featured them in some print material. There is currently debate as to if QR codes are used or if the public finds them useful.
