/// Everyme Offers a Mobile-First Version of Group Social Networking

April 10, 2012  |  All Things Digital


One of the potential big remaining social opportunities is to create a social network around the contacts in our mobile phone book. It would be intimate and respectful of privacy, and it would probably look like a cross between texting and a social news feed. This might be something a mobile OS does itself — say, as a better version of Apple’s iMessage, or built into Facebook’s phone project . Or, it might be a start-up project. After all, the best mobile app for photo sharing is apparently worth $1 billion . On that note, Everyme today launches its iPhone app. Everyme built around circles of friends. Yeah, circles — like Google+. But not exactly. Everyme’s circles are small, private groups of people where each member knows who else is in the group, what the group name is, and can change a large group cover photo, a la Facebook Timeline. Members of the group don’t have to use the iPhone app; they can also get emails or text messages.
