Do You Banjo? Location-Based Social Network App

banjo logoThe social media space is continually expanding adding new channels and apps everyday. We have adopted these networks and use them multiple times throughout the day to find out what is going on in our area, see pictures and updates and check in to local businesses. Events across the globe are now brought to you in real-time by providing live, up to the second coverage to your phone or tablet. It has completely shifted the way we absorb information; apps teach us, social channels connect us and push notifications keep us current. It exciting; however, there is one small problem. How does one manage all of these channels without missing out on what is most important to them? The answer? Banjo.

iphone_slide3_banjo_appBanjo is an app for your smart phone or tablet that helps keep you in the loop on what is happening around you. Its location-based technology shows you where your network is and what they are up to. With over 900 million users on Facebook, 200 million tweeting and over 30 million checking in on foursquare, it is clear we want our friends and family to know where we are and what we are doing. Banjo helps manage your network by showing you the feed from all of your social accounts in one. BRILLIANT! You can see where your friends and connections are across multiple social networks, around the corner or around the world.

Banjo founder Damien Patton was in the Boston airport waiting for a flight to Las Vegas. A friend he hadn’t seen in years was waiting for a different flight just one gate over. Damien tweeted. His friend checked in. Both posted about their locations, yet they missed connecting simply because they were using different social networks. Imagine being so close to an old friend and not even knowing it. Crushing. So the idea for a location-based network was born. You can link your Instagram, Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to Banjo for updates from all four networks in one feed. As your friends update their statuses, post photos and check-in to their favorite spots, you will be notified. How cool is that? I invite you to download the app from iTunes or Google Play and play around with all of the fun features this app has to offer. What to learn more? Click here to watch their YouTube Video.
