Minimalist iPhone-Based Social Network Allows Only 50 Contacts
Path is a new app that facilitates "quality networks."
A new social network called Path was released yesterday for the iPhone. Developed by Dave Morin, a ex-Facebook employee, the network will cap the number of ‘friends’ a user can have to fifty, with the 5 closest contacts in an intimate circle.
Presently, Path only allows communication through photo images, so that the user will be able to truly share daily moments with his closest group of people, without being accused of ostentation or self-promotion.
While creating his new social network, Morin was highly influenced by the works by two experts in the field of evolutionary anthropology and economics respectively.
