Casting an evolutionary spin on the world of social networking comes igobubble. It’s a social networking app all about bubbles. Well, not exactly bubbles, more like the person using the app, but it does so by providing everything in a series of bubbles.
Users can put thoughts, messages, photos, videos and everything else they can imagine and put it into a bubble. Much more interactive elements than in other social networking apps are then offered. Anybody can change such bubbles, move them, clone them or spread them around the app’s world of sorts. The bubbles even have lives of their own with the ability to grow, shrink, divide or even pop if they’re not popular enough. Plus users can keep track of how they travel, according to how popular they become.
It’s an intriguing idea and feels much more interactive and fluid than the potentially staid interface of the likes of Facebook and Twitter. This is a social network that concentrates more on growth and viral spreading with a Darwinian style twist. Whether it takes off is anybody’s guess but it’s certainly worth a look, if nothing else but to see the ingenuity behind it.
Igobubble app is out now.
