Social networks today let you easily connect with anybody from anywhere in the world. But what if you want to connect with nearby friends? What if you want to hold a poll of local opinion? To let you do this and also notify you when your friends are nearby is an iOS and Android phone app called Banjo.
The app monitors Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Gowalla accounts to gather opinions, news, and updates. You can filter the app’s content based on your interests and location. Each location has markers shown on a map where the updates are originating from. If you have a friend in your Banjo account and they happen to be nearby where you are, the app sends you a push notification and vice versa. These features along with others such as messaging and gathering opinions through comments make Banjo an excellent social discovery service.
