26 posts and columns on friend
Last week, BoomTown sat down with former Myspace exec Travis Katz to talk about the private beta launch of his new start-up, Gogobot. No, it’s not a robot from Google–it’s a social travel site, which uses friends to enhance the travel-planning experience. Essentially, it feels like Facebook for trips, but with really good images.
At the end of this video interview with BoomTown about RockMelt–a new social browser that debuted in beta last night–the two founders politely tried to gloss over my calling it a “Facebook browser.” Except, um, it is. Sure, there are Twitter and other news apps present. And I even like the mantra for RockMelt, which “re-imagines the browser around friends, feeds, and sharing.” But that would be–for the most part right now–friends on Facebook, feeds from Facebook and sharing with Facebook.
