Sonar Helps Users Network Locally

Remember that? Walking into a party or business meeting and not knowing ANYONE? Having to put out our hand, offer the dreaded eye contact, and (gasp) learn other people’s names? Sounds barbaric, to be honest.

But what about all that six degrees of separation stuff? It’s fairly probably that we all have some connections within any sufficiently large number of gathered people, especially in our hometowns, right?

Sonar – Mobile Profile for Local Social Networking promises to bring the power of online social networking to the local space, thereby allowing us all to bury further into our handsets and avoid unkown humans at all costs.

The developer claims to have included Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare into their new app release, allowing it to use publicly available profile information to help us find the connections we might share with folks nearby us. So, if users want to figure out what that girl across the bar is thinking about, or what she does for work, they can use Sonar to look through the public information she’s already shared online. it’s the prefect innocuous stalking tool! What about letting the room know how big a Kanye fan they are? Or that they need an iPhone developer for a huge new funded project? You can do all that and more with Sonar, according to the developers.

Taking things one step further, the devs happily point out that

Sonar is perfect for:
– Networkers
– Entrepreneurs
– Freelancers
– Event Organizers
– Early Adopters
– Puppies
– Tech and Social Media Enthusiasts
– Anyone that loves “small world” moments

Puppies?! Who doesn’t love puppies? All kidding aside, this seems like a fairly interesting way to connect with folks you happen to be standing near, without having to go through the typical pleasantries associated with real life networking, or at least enrich the experience; being able to start a conversation on a subject your target individual is already interested in is a great way to build that next power team relationship, right?
