Comments Off  January 4th, 2011  in News

The Atlantic magazine reports that Facebook and FourSquare are planning to drive increased serendipity. 


Mark Zuckerberg, in interview with Time magazine as 2010′s Person of the Year, stated: “We have this concept of serendipity…a lucky coincidence…you bump into a friend that you haven’t seen for a while.  That’s awesome.”


It’s nice to see the other guys beginning to get it. ;-)

He must have read the Irish Times coverage of the launch of Locle’s own Serendipity feature in June 2009!


We should have trademarked “Serendipity”!  The benefit of hindsight.  Alas, the limitations of boot-strapping.

Serendipity will be the killer application of mobile social networking.  You heard it here first.
