A new social network dubbed SocialRadar is set to end this problem,
“In five years, there will be 5.6 billion people worldwide using smartphones, continuously broadcasting their location. At the same time, 3.9 billion people have social profiles online said Michael Chasen in a blog post. ” Yet these two essential components of our everyday life operate independently. We didn’t realize it, but this separation, has been depriving us of so many more ways to connect with people we know and people we want to know.”
“Combining these two powerful elements of the digital age will fundamentally and positively change the way people meet and connect. And I’m thrilled to reveal that after months of development, we’ve created technology that does just that.”
SocialRadar gives users real-time information about people around them and lets users know who is nearby, how they’re connected and what they’ve been up to. It Radar connects users to the information they want but gives users full control over their privacy.
“You can set it to share your info publicly or just with friends. You can be anonymous or even invisible. And you can adjust the settings easily depending on where you are and what would be helpful to you in that circumstance. You are in full control,” says Chasen.
