It’s a social interaction competition with an overall goal of linking the world together with the use of photos. It has a competitive edge to it, which other site do not have. It also has a verification process to be part of a chain. You have to email photos to one another and get accepted. This simple process will make it hard to create fake accounts and be linked in to a chain. Other sites, if you take away profiles, blogs, and messaging services, do not exist. JoinMyChain just needs the photo of you and another to keep the chain alive. There are many more details about this site I can get into, but we are still in beta. If you have any questions, please email me at multi-b@joinmychain.com

Thanks,
Multi-B

Both applications while trendy are tedious and pointless and they actually indicate that people have too much time on their hands doing nothing productive.Apart from gossiping about essentially rubbish,what exactly is productive about these time wasters. Who really needs to report every action he/she makes and spread it like a virus.As for facebook which is essentially a zombie population counting device,why exactly do people really trust that their personal information are not been hoovered by the worlds government for diabolival reasons. The ease with which zombies ooze out their data is too unreal despite the fact and evidence of numerous individuals who have been ruined by the information the stupidly dumped on the net. This same people get worried that the governments what national ID systems linked to detailed profiles. Mark these words, all these sites will turn over your documented data in the very near future.As Intel Boss Andy Grove wrote – Only the paranoid survive, unfortunately stupidity is now a glorified virtue

The next great “thing” on the web should be

http://www.deviantart.com/

And here is why:

Facebook and Myspace are Social networking sites where people can gather to chat and gossip. oooooh aaaaaaah

Wikiepidia (a favorite of mine) is the greatest gathering of human knowledge on the internet – FREE!!

http://www.deviantart.com/ is a gathering place for artists from around the world. You want to see a professional picture of “Notre Dame”? “Rome”?
you want to see someone whose skill with the paintbrush blows your mind? you want to read poems and stories?
you want to browse handmade crafts to buy?
The site is set up so that a person can sell their artwork from the “FREE” domain you are given!
you can get a subscription which unlocks extra features, but is not needed to enjoy what the site has to offer.
Contest are constant and the community is fantastic!!

Wikipedia may be the greatest collection of knowledge on the net
http://www.deviantart.com/ is the greatest collection of human creativity on the net, period.

I see twitter to be used more as a business and professional application where fb is more consumer. They can both make money with apps and it’s smart to allow companies like seesmic desktop that combines access to both platforms at once. Both have limitless potential.

i do not know how to use twitter, the lenght of the posts is so infimous that one can hardly grunt, and well.. I had an my first e mail account in 1996, and i am not precisely illiterate internetwise so any technolgy that presents a learning curve steeper than my interest is doomed.
Competition is good though, at least so i’ve heard.

I am a web developer, and the need for innovative web technologies for the “home” user has just fallen off to miserable lows. Its all about industry now, as everyone at home (or on the job) can go play in a sandbox site like Facebook.
But I remember Telnet chatting. I also remember thinking “What a waste of a good technology. Too bad no one ever invented the telephone”, – or telegraph for the SMSites among you. Tada! – enter Twitter stage left. A need-it-now kinda service, without having to slog through everyone’s look-at-me filler. As for a business model, the service is a sound idea that isn’t so internet-specific as to be demanded “free”. I think it will be much easier to regulate fees/charges in the telecom market than the interwebs. Now, what did the Pope have for lunch today?!? I’m on tenterhooks….

Peace.

Having said that I doubt you’d get a principle at either company to say the other company isn’t a financial competitor as well. As to my life-long pursuit of cool cred, we agree: It is sad.

Didn’t forget, exactly. Nielsen says Twitter’s retention is in the 40s, but they only measure visits to twitter.com. Just under half of Twitter activity (sending and reading messages) happens via third-party apps. After you’ve created an account, there is zero need to return to the site, unless you want to change a setting — even if you love it. So, for this kind of service, web site traffic is irrelevant, I believe.
