SCVNGR: Earn Your Right to Be Vain

There is something lackluster about social check-in apps like FourSquare, Gowalla and Facebook Places. Whenever I tried to use or checkout one of those services, I was always thinking about how letting my friends know where I’ve been is not exciting enough for me to use it. This impression of those websites not providing me with a lot of incentive to maintain my accounts but a new service has popped up and it seems particularly intriguing with its marriage of social media and gaming; SCVNGR.

So what is SCVNGR?

SCVNGR at its core is a Social Game, it makes you look at the locations that you check-in from in an entirely different light. When you check-in from a location you will be able to choose from a variety of  scavenger hunts or “treks”, they could ask for a specific word mentioned in a restaurants menu or to take a picture with a certain landmark. After completing each challenge you will earn points, badges and even real-world rewards for your efforts, never mind that boasting rights for pawning your friends. other users.

Isn’t it a wonderful feeling that the majority of world is multinational in this case?

Catfish: A Social Networking Movie Worth Watching

Filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story and decided to document a budding friendship between Ariel’s brother Nev,a 24 year old photographer from New York City, with Abby (8 years old) and her sister Megan (19 years old) from rural Michigan. The story starts with Abby contacting Nev via Facebook, asking for his permission to make a painting from one of his photographs, then we follow Nev as his friendship develops and he and the filmmakers decide to pay the girls a visit at their farm in Michigan. This as much of a synopsis as I can give without spoiling the movie for you but its a well written thriller and you will certainly be kept on your toes during the second half of the movie with plot twists and climaxes that will leave you thinking about them for days.
