Like Facebook for BlackBerry users
by on July 17, 2010
If the world wasn’t already inundated with social networks already, this one is exclusively for BlackBerry owners.
It’s a lot simpler too – four step set up, a validation email and you’re all set to go, with minimal bio information and a picture the only things needed for a profile.
It’s dubbed by many as ‘a great way to contact business partners and new friends’ and you search in the same was as Facebook, using a name. Or you can search by interest or business type, making it useful for a wider range of users.
However, in our experience it seemed a little low-budget for our tastes, with a number of people simply asking girls to add them to ‘chat’.
Unless your friends are using the application, it’s a little creepy to reach out to people you don’t know, and it seems a number of people are using their bio to remind you of that fact.
Social networks work best for friends, and with the excellent BBM already in place, it’s hard to see the need for a larger setup.
