NightTag is the world’s first social music app, designed to help people capture their nightlife experience in one place. It combines images of the night, with the music that is being listened to, in the place where it is playing – and posts it all onto a user’s Facebook Timeline.
NightTag allows users to take a photo, while its music-recognition software identifies the song playing and the smartphone’s GPS pinpoints the location. NightTag then posts all three elements onto the user’s Facebook Timeline in one, cohesive NightTag photo post.
Expeerience is a Pinterest-style Twitter for experiences. Users can snap photos and videos of their experiences and add them to collections, which can be configured to auto-sync with Facebook albums. Posts can be hash tagged and shared with the world for others to discover. Any photos or videos that appeal to a user can be collected into their own personal collections. Users can search the network to experience moments in time they may have missed or didn’t have the chance to capture in person.
$1 billion, nice haul…
Facebook has 845 million active users globally — about 54% of the world’s online population.
It’s also winning the social media popularity contest in terms of time spent on the site. Facebook users scrolled through their news feed, gawked at photos of friends and played games like Farmville for an average of 423 minutes in December of last year.
Tumblr came in second (151 minutes) and Pinterest third (80 minutes). To some surprise, MySpace (13 minutes) beat out Google (5 minutes). (via Pew: Recommendations on Social Media Not Yet Driving News Traffic)
