Twitter (and all social networks) will never be the same thanks to PeopleBrowsr

For the past few weeks I’ve been using PeopleBrowsr. Very cool. It’s the most significant thing to happen to social networking since FriendFeed came on the scene a year ago.

It was launched on FriendFeed and look at the reaction. That tells me that this is going to see significant growth because it delivers features that people need from Twitter, like grouping and ability to augment contacts, that Twitter and other social networks have been unable to deliver.

Here’s CEO Jodee Rich demoing it to me, I highly recommend you try this if you are a social networking freak like me.

  1. Robert being really impressed with a new product: I will look into PeopleBrowsr right away! Grouping function looks amazing and very useful; I hope this makes it possible to more efficiently follow more people.

  3. The game of web 2.0 is still just taking off! The tools are getting better everyday. With a few mouse clicks you are able to have access to massive amounts of information. Now you can focus the noise to who and what you should be listening too!
    Robert keep interviewing these industry leaders!

  5. Its nice – but not enough to get me of Air based Tweetdeck which is more robust. Either way I agree this type of app changes everything and allows more personal effectivity.

  7. OMG! Jodee Rich – do some Googling and check this man’s history – it’s long and ‘interesting’. I suggest you don’t lend him any cash!

  9. Hmm… This might be useful, but I have no way of knowing. It asks me for my Twitter username and password. Surely sane people don’t give their login details to random third-party web sites?

    Scoble, I’m surprised to see you apparently condoning the password anti-pattern.

  11. while initially impressed – especially given @timoreilly ‘s interest – I haven’t adopted it yet as the user experience/user interactions are too alpha – Peoplebrowsr needs to get world class UX guys working on this and then I think it might have a chance to really kick *ss and become a must have app. Iminlikewithyou.com is an example of impressive interaction design that might be a reference for peoplebrowsr. Cool to see people pushing the envelope in this space.
