App Posts Fake Updates On Social Networks To Give Couch Potatoes A Social Life
CouchCachet uses social media to make users seem cooler than they are.
CouchCachet wants to help you out. You want to spend your Friday night watching Freaks and Geeks on Netflix, but you don’t want your friends to think you’re lame, nor do you wish to be bested by whatever cool thing they are doing that night. Enter CouchCachet, the new application that, used in conjunction with Foursquare, checks you in at cool events happening around town, even though you are actually snuggled up in bed.
The website asks:
Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that showed you all of the cool parties, bars and restaurants that you could be hitting tonight? Of course it would. But you know what would be even better? A social application that will lie and say you are already doing those things while you sit at home in your pajamas.
