Startup Idea #129: What are you working on?
The other day I met with a buddy that runs a photobooth rental company. After the meeting, I sent some introduction emails to him and others I know that he should know. It got me thinking, helping others is great — it’s human for us to want to help others. I know we have Twitter and Facebook, but what about another social network of needs? OK, Jig is doing that. But what about a focus on how can friends help you and how can you help friends?
I imagine a feed view similar to Twitter. Simple premise is “What are you working on?”, but maybe that’s not it. You could “retweet” things your friends say, want, or need. Contacts, ideas, cheaper vendors and options, jobs, restaurant suggestions, tips, etc.
Ways to comment on them, thank, introduce people (Hashable?), etc.
I don’t use LinkedIn, so maybe something like this exists on there?
Has anyone seen anything like what I’m describing? Basically Twitter for work. Not Yammer (that is basically for within your own company).
