Pearescope Announces Launch of Social Networking App at NY Tech Day(April 18, 2012)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- Pearescope (www.pearescope.com) is a smart phone app that is revolutionizing the way people interact and network. Proud to announce its official public launch on Thursday, April 19th, at New York Tech Day (http://www.nytechday.com/), Pearescope is the first networking app to be incorporated into a trade show in NYC. Pearescope's simple goal is to facilitate networking through location-based mobile technology and the world's most ubiquitous social network, Facebook.
"Your network is everything. The future of your career, love life, friendships, and even happiness depend on it. Existing networking tools like Facebook and LinkedIn are static catalogues of past connections, and are not particularly useful for making new connections. Pearescope flips that model on its head, and uses your existing catalogue of connections to proactively and effortlessly meet new people in your various social circles," said Evan Walther, Pearescope CEO and cofounder.
Whereas similar services either limit you to meeting only those on the app or send you a fire hose of everyone around you, Pearescope incorporates the recently-opened Facebook Locations API to enable attendees and exhibitors at New York Tech Day or any similar event to interact with friends and friends of friends, whether on the app or not, who choose to share their location, thus maximizing their networking opportunities.
At this year's sold-out NY Tech Day, Pearescope is providing new ways for participants to interact with one another. With over 3,500 people at NY Tech Day, there's no way to connect, trade contact information, and meet with everyone you want. In addition to notifying you which of your Facebook friends are at the event, Pearescope creates a list of introductions to like-minded mutual friends nearby and at the event, provides real-time messaging for immediate networking, and stores the connection for you to follow up with after the event.
Stop by the Pearescope booth during NY Tech Day to pick up a Pearescope Bingo card for a chance to win a new iPad, a 3-month membership to high-end men's salon Spiff NYC, gift certificates to Tiella NYC and Puddin', and more!
