Mashable today published a blog post listing major websites and applications to closely watch in 2011. In the comments section I had shared my thoughts on why StormDriver should also be closely watched in 2011, and since they have put the comments on moderation, I decided to elaborate on this on our own blog.
So why you need to closely watch StormDriver in 2011?
It seems that social media and social networking is a trend that’s going to keep the Internet users glued to their PCs, laptops and other devices for years to come. And StormDriver is going to offer a fresh and exciting way to be social. We often call it an “augmented browsing” experience.
No longer you will need to share interesting stuff and breaking news over multiple social media and social networking profiles, and then wait for your friends or followers to respond. Your friends, followers and other StormDriver users will be able to see in real time what links you are visiting, what links you have just visited, how you are relating links to each other and how you are organizing the links you are visiting using appropriate tags.
You will be able to monitor the activities of your favorite celebrities and close friends without bothering them. Just imagine, make friends in StormDriver and just follow them around for interesting stuff.
Additionally, you will be able to hold conversations with your StormDriver friends and other StormDriver users immediately without additional tools. StormDriver provides everything you need to stay connected, interact with your friends and even strangers, and share interesting stuff immediately. It is based on the promising Open Web Layer architecture.
