What is Brightkite?
Brightkite is the simple way to keep up with friends and places. It lets you see where all your friends are, so you can spend more time with them. You can also discover places in your neighborhood and meet other locals along the way.
What Does APLINK Think?
Brightkite reminds me of the early facebook days and then also Twitter – I could at first see little use for both of the before mentioned social platforms, however today I mock that I spend 36 hours a day in facebook and now manage around 8 twitter accounts.
But unlike facebook & twitter. Brightkite has many – let me call them – glitches but after re-attempting different things it seems like magic brightkite does what it is kinda meant to do. The best thing about brightkite is its ability to connect facebook & twitter to your travels via your smartphone, I have an HTC Hero which is android based and there is a brightkite app – hey and it works !!!
So, what do I think – APLINK can’t help but be on as many social platforms he can find and that make sense. Brightkite seems to make sense for now & with an alexa rank of 12,581 – alot more people than me must seem to think itsReal too.
note: to find me on brightkite my nick is OZAWESUM – that’s one of the glitches I can’t seem to fix. I forgot my APLINK password and can’t seem to generate a reset – so have had to re-register with a new account.
TIP: if you have a business especially a venue, restaurant or bar – register and create your business location – it’s free and yet another signpost to your doorstep courtesy of SOCIAL MEDIA.
