SocialRadar Launches in Philly

Posted by SocialRadar

Our Radar range is expanding. Earlier this year we launched SocialRadar for iPhone in our hometown of Washington D.C. and were overwhelmed by the rapid adoption and community support. But that was only the beginning.

The second city in which we are formally bringing Social back is Philadelphia. Where better to emphasize the value in instantly learning about everyone around you than in the City of Brotherly Love? They may love each other, but do they know each other?

Now they will.

Facebook’s ‘Friends Nearby’ Builds Momentum for Location Sharing

Posted by Michael Chasen

With over 1 billion monthly active users on Facebook, it’s the most popular social network globally. While some initially viewed Facebook as distancing people from reality, there is a movement to harness the power of this same technology to bring us closer together in the real world.

Facebook’s new “Friends Nearby,” which lets friends share their real-time location with other Facebook friends, gives an entirely new meaning to the “connected generation.” The power of combining our social networks with our smartphone location can fundamentally change the way we meet and connect with others.

At Bitcamp hackathon, students give SocialRadar’s API a spin

Posted by John Fontaine

When we heard about the Bitcamp Hackathon at University of Maryland (April 4-6), we knew it was the perfect place for SocialRadar to test our API – which basically means exposing the data within our system to let other developers “piggyback” on our offerings.

University of Maryland (UMD) has a robust tradition in engineering, strong ties to DC and the university won Major League Hacking’s Fall 2013 trophy. As a bonus – one of the organizers, UMD junior Brent Bovenzi, joined SocialRadar as an intern and is now a developer with our team. We knew this event would be a good opportunity to meet other bright, social students like Brent.

My AHA! Moment with SocialRadar

Posted by Kevin Alansky

This morning, I had my first moment of SocialRadar serendipity. One of our office contractors from Wingate Hughes, Amy, was using SocialRadar while working onsite. She browsed my profile and asked how I know the accomplished musician Toby Lightman.  I explained that my wife Rachel was her camp counselor long ago. Amy said she was her best friend from childhood.  What’s more, we discovered that we lived in the same town (at different points in time).

This not only led to a lively conversation but also gave further confirmation that SocialRadar will expand our networks—and our knowledge about the people in our networks—easily and exponentially. The app will illuminate common ground among business contacts, which is as valuable as ever; no matter how technologically advanced we get, nothing beats the human connection.

Announcing SocialRadar, A New Way to Live Life Connected

Posted by Michael Chasen

In five years, there will be 5.6 billion people worldwide using smartphones, continuously broadcasting their location. At the same time, 3.9 billion people have social profiles online.

Yet these two essential components of our everyday life operate independently. We didn’t realize it, but this separation, has been depriving us of so many more ways to connect with people we know and people we want to know.

Until now.

Combining these two powerful elements of the digital age will fundamentally and positively change the way people meet and connect. And I’m thrilled to reveal that after months of development, we’ve created technology that does just that…
