The Fusion of Google Maps, Yelp, Instagram and Facebook, all in one hyperlocal sharing app–new from Flickr
Findery takes a hyperlocal approach to social discovery. Users pin notes, which can be public or private, to locations on a map. Notes consist of everything from pics and tips, to trivia, to personal memos about an individual’s personal experience at that location.
“Every place has a story, or a thousand stories,” Fake said in a statement. “Findery brings places to life, be they where you stand or where you hope to go.”
Maps are at the heart of the app. Upon opening the app, users are greeted with a series of “notemaps,” themed collections of notes from users about nearby locations. Users can also slide over to the map view to see a map of their current location and track all of the notes people have about nearby places.
Why it’s Hot
Another barrier has been broken down toward unifying communities of people sharing experiences at the hyper-local level. Now instead of flipping between yelp listings, or checking reviews among your friends, or searching on google maps or TripAdvisor–this interface marries all of them together. Great tool for marketers to capitalize on areas of interest around certain areas in locations of interest, by zeroing in on what users write, concentrations of posts and commonalities around certain areas–e.g. best places for moms to take kids, etc.
