Earlier in January, Yrn.me’s founder, Ahmad Mukoshy described his “next big thing” as ”a micro discussion platform that allows you to create discussion threads of topics of interest in fewer than 140 char and share with the world in the easiest way.”
Yarnable.com (soon to be launched) is a handy tool for your real time status updates answering the one simple question “What is happening”?
According to Yarnable’s blog:
Quite simple, Yarnable is a free micro-discussion site that allow you to create and share short topics of interest in under 140 characters. It comes with great number of social features such private messaging and friend list.
Yarnable, founded in mid January, 2010 comes in handy for your real time status updates answering the one simple question “What is happening”.
All topics created by users are neatly organised under related categories such as Sports, Movies, Business and even Technology.
Because privacy setting on social sites is often crucial, you can always set your privacy limit from your profile settings allowing you to block or allow public access to your topics. Simple, you can even host private discussions with your network of friends without thirdparty interference.
This impressive web site is coming out soon, will have the 1st private beta release around1st March 2010.
While we wait for this new micro-blogging service out of Northern Nigeria, it’ll be interesting to see how different it would be from Twitter.com, Kukurooku.com, NaijaPulse.com and Gistcaster.com
Already, there are indications that it will look different and unique especially with the categories you can create for different topics. Again, with a lot of issues around privacy (especially on Facebook), it would be nice to actually engage in “private discussions with your network of friends without any third party interference.”
My questions are: Will Yarnable be just another Twitter clone? Will it be unique? Will it impress?
