It doesn’t really matter what kind of phone you have if it’s a smartphone you can probably connect to a variety of networks that you are happy to connect to like Twitter, Google+ and Facebook, just to name a few.
But there are some networks that are really only available and accessible on a smartphone, networks we talked about before like Instagram and even Foursquare granted you can have a decent experience with those networks by way of a desktop computer verses a mobile computer.
There are some social networks that are really only for the mobile environment whether it’s on IOS, Andriod, or Windows 7 if you haven’t heard of an application called “Path”.. My review of Path is that its a limited network in a sense that you can only add so many people to your network cause how many people do you really, really know. On Facebook it’s unlimited but you may not know all of the people in your network. Path keeps you limited in terms of the friends that you can share with, so you have to limit your friends unfortunetly but that’s it’s strenght when using something like an iPhone app it makes it easy because you might be on the go all the time even if you are sitting at a desk you might not be on the go but if you were, path and the apps built specifically around it would allow you to stay connected without having to connect to a desktop machine to get a completely different experience everything is wrapped inside the app.
There are other mobile only social networks that we can talk about that has to do with social networking. ‘Stamped” I haven’t heard about this one before, but after using it, I realized that I may not be their target market but essentially this is a new social network that creates a social networking experience by allowing users to put a stamp on a recommendation or a just about anything whether it’s a restaurant, bar or beer, club, band, show, etc; So it’s a little like “Getglue” only it’s a mobile application.
Another mobile applications that seems to be a big deal when it first launched largely because of the name behind it Kevin Rose it’s called “Oink”. I tried it for a little while and I just don’t Oink alot. Basically the app is focused on the experience by rating things from the thing itself, like going to a mall and rating the actual stores inside the mall or going to a restaurant and rating the food inside that restaurant.
So there you have it after creating accounts with mobile only social networking apps, and understanding the experience the best ones for IOS, Andriod and or Windows7, are Path, Stamped, and Oink.
