Blippy: Could This Insanity Have a Purpose?

Well, privacy in the new social age is a very illusive ideal. Some people, like one Mark Zuckerberg, think that privacy is dead but even they try to reclaim their own private space! With Blippy privacy is not just dead, privacy has been dug up from its grave chopped up, processed and sold as piranha food.

So what is Blippy?

Blippy / What are your friends buying?

Blippy is a service very similar to Twitter in its look and it’s dubbed as a “social shopping” service. Basically, what it does is that it allows its users to automatically share their purchases from iTunes, Amazon,Visa, MasterCard and others and allows them to discuss those purchases and track them. Yes; that means your entire financial transactions are going to be shared with the whole wide web, if you opt to that. The site provides you with a “Blippy Credit Card” and all the transactions on this card will be shared while your private credit cards will remain… private. So with the launch of this service privacy is dead, but are the founders of Blippy crazy to think people will be willing to share that? Or are they at the bleeding edge of social media?

Will the iPad Change Social Media?

While many people are disappointed, saying that the iPad is nothing more than an oversized iTouch, I personally believe that it will be game-changing.
