Social networking has gone through quite a few tries on the BlackBerry with none of them sticking except for Facebook. (which is not even BB specific) Devin of BBcool reported yesterday about the release of yet another attempt at the BlackBerry social network.
The ones I remember so far:
- BlackBerry Pin Exchange
And now BlackBerry Ave. I am not sure what differentiator these websites are offering that makes them worth it to users to have yet another network to manage. I wish them all the luck but I really don’t see what has changed that will make this one stick. The interface of BlackBerry Ave is better than its predecessors which is a start. It also allows for some cool interaction with your own blog and profile.
Yesterday I mentioned BlackBerry PIN exchange that piggybacks on Facebook which may help it survive. I know that RIM is saying that social networking is the future of BlackBerry but currently I don’t see enough interest to spawn off a separate network just for BlackBerry users.
Let me know what you think…
