Social Media is constantly evolving and we’re not just talking about Facebook & Twitter!
Following the recent success of sites such as Foursquare and pinterest, social media website Mashable has identified nine social networking services that could take off next.
Path – Online journal used to post photos, travel updates, and keeping in touch with your family.
Highlight – This GPS app alerts you when another highlight user is nearby making connection possibilities endless.
Sonar – Similar to Highlight, although this app allows you to find like minded people within your vicinity.
Banjo – Another location-based social tool, this one works in tandem with your facebook and twitter connections (amongst others) and not only tells you when their nearby but also informs you on local activities.
Glancee – A location tool with the ability to share notes with your accompanying friends.
Localmind – Similar to foursquare, this app even uses it technology as well as facebook check-ins to provide advice on local attractions.
Fancy – Similar to pinterest, users post their own digital wishlist to share with their friends and others.
Forecast – As the name suggests, this app focuses on the future hoping that this could encourage friends and others to commit to future events.
Gogobot – Like pinterest for travel, plan holidays and seek recommendations from others.
How the hospitality industry embraces these technologies could determine their success and if they increase their popularity substantially, your business may want to get on board with them sooner rather than later.
