It is a part of a virtual assistants work to keep up with new technologies so we are able to best advise our clients.
So every time I see a new social network or another website I like to do a little research to see if it is interesting.
Lately I’ve added several new networks that are succeeding each one with its peculiarities. The last I’ve added is Pinwheel. Pinwheel combines geolocation – content that is placed on a map – with blog, photos and contact with friends.
To register you must request an invitation and you get the link to sign up after a couple of days. Once registered the first thing we see is a huge map with a block of small photographs, which are the contacts that have added a post on the site map. Pinwheel use Google maps.
To leave a note with a photo or a comment you just have to click on Leave a note and choose where you want to show your note on the map. We can upload pictures and write sentences of varying lengths. The idea is to share information and find what other users have placed in a specific area.
I think we should see the utility that can be given later on, perhaps traders can place their ads, friends can upload photos of where they are traveling, etc..
What do you think about this new network?
