Local Startup Launching New Social Network at St Pete Party
Eyecrawler is a new type of social network developed here in Tampa Bay. It helps you decide where to go and what to do before you go. The Eyecrawler app is free; available for iPhone and Android users.
ST. PETE/TAMPA BAY – December 2012 – Twitter has tweets; Eyecrawler has blinks. This new social network will allow users to peek into the now and see real-time content generated at locations. Eyecrawler users can follow a geographic area, similar to Foursquare, but will see a real-time feed similar to Twitter or Facebook. The local startup will be launching at Naughty Noel on December 13th.

Eyecrawler helps people decide where to go and what to do by displaying a live blink stream from area locations. Blinks are real-time moments created by Eyecrawler users at area locations consisting of a photo, category, and comment. Adding a comment to another user’s blink allows you to communicate with a person who is already at a destination, whether that person is a friend or stranger. Blinks can be further filtered by categories such as live music, karaoke, sports, or family friendly to name a few. Friending or following is not required, simply select an area and see everything happening in real-time – as if you were already there, as if there was a camera installed in each location.
The FREE Eyecrawler app is for social people with iPhones and Androids to view and share content about what’s happening at local destinations. It’s also for venue and bar owners, event promoters, self-promoters like DJs and bands can show what’s happening at their events and draw more people out.
The local site www.hobnobstpetersburg.com is the first to feature the Eyecrawler widget. The free web widget can be added to any website and will display the local Eyecrawler blink stream.
