Mates - A location-based social networking system
May 2nd, 2005
Mates is a very interesting, yet-to-debut social networking engine based on proximity that can be tied into a cell phone, IM, GPS or other personal tracking systems.
Imagine what it would be like if..
- Your instant messaging program could automatically create and populate buddy lists based on the people in your classroom, your office building, or even your neighborhood.
- Your mobile phone could receive a text message when old friends you rarely see happen to be nearby.
- Your laptop computer or handheld device connected you to a live feed of information about nearby people and events.
Well, with Mates this doesn’t seem to be too far away.
