Face2Face is a smartphone application that can integrate your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, MySpace accounts in one place – to proximately tell you the location of your friends (or friends of friends in case you desire).
Apparently it consolidates all the social networks to enable you to know the location of a friend if he/she is nearby.
Face2Face says that it tells the approximate location to cure privacy issues; however, it does allow you to broadcast your exact coordinates to friends – eventually enabling you to meet them in person; Face 2 Face.
Face2face will offer you to make yourself available to some friends, and not to others, on an individual basis.
Moreover, cross-network ‘friends of friends’ feature can make you meet new people through trusted relationships while ensuring the same benefits of “social selectivity.”
Idea is awesome; it outclasses other location applications by limiting the information about your exact location. Moreover, it gives the control to the user to decide about what contacts to get your location’s information, a feature majority would love to have.
But at the same time, we think face2face wasted an idea by not developing their own (mobile) social network and just by relying on already available social networks.
Just to add, .ws domain is not that pretty for an application like face2face.
Face2face works with most smartphones including BlackBerry, iPhone, Android and even many J2ME (such as Nokia’s) handsets.
