Let’s Do Something New: sqoot Harnesses Social Media To Inspire Group Activity
A new service helps users round up friends to make plans.
Connecting the power of Facebook, a new start up called sqoot, aims to help you make plans by answering one question: “Who’s in?” Sqoot crawls your social graph and encourages your friends to get off their computers, get outside and join in on the fun. When your friends sign up for sqoot you can “copy” or “join” their activity, and then invite more friends. Plans are stored in your queue so you can remember them and as plans are completed users are rewarded. Sqoot allows local businesses to offer users targeted, realtime offers.
