Find Business Opportunities Near You With Unsocial For Windows Phone 7

Unsocial is a brand new addition to the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. You can think of it as LinkedIn with location-based features. In fact, the app has deep integration with LinkedIn. You must have seen a lot of apps designed for particular conferences and academic gatherings. Unsocial strives to provide a generic platform for all such events. Using this free app, you can get alerts whenever a person from your professional network is somewhere near you. But the app isn’t just limited to that. You can also use it to discover offices and products near you. The Unsocial app provides a good way for broadcasting your thoughts regarding a particular product or business, but only to people who are located near you. This can prove to be an extremely useful feature for local businesses and small-scale products.

Unsocial is all about two things: One, it keeps you more in touch with people you already know and have added to your professional network. Two, it lets you meet new business contacts whenever you are near them. Users can choose to add smart tags for their location. Whenever a new user with similar interests will wander into that area, the previous user will be notified.

But that doesn’t mean you have to rush to meet the person head on. You can get to know them better first by sending a few messages from Unsocial’s in-app messaging service. Not only that, you can arrange to meet the person by setting it all up via the app.

Now suppose you are in a business expo, where a lot of potential clients are scattered around you. Unsocial will help to let you know which people you should really meet and where you can find them (if they have chosen to share their location). You can also get a bit of free advertisement via Unsocial by broadcasting your product’s slogan, your agenda or anything at all to all the app’s users.

So if you would like to extend your business and add some new business contacts to your favor bank, Unsocial is the way to go. Some people might argue that the service is a bit too limited, but the same could have once been said about apps like Instagram when they were first released, and all it takes is a few users in order to make such services really popular, and all the more useful.

    I recently updated my WP7 phone to 7.5 (Mango) and decided to download and try the application. It is a fantastic concept and I look forward to using it.

    One thing I’d like to ask has to do with “Sign In” and “SignUp.” I automatically chose to SignUp via my phone after seeing you didn’t have a signup via your website. I signed up with a different email address than my LinkedIn account. So when I went back into the app and signed in using my LI account, I kept seeing my “old” data being displayed when searching for folks in my vicinity.

    Also might I suggest getting a Get Satisfaction account to tie into this Facebook site for some level of support and or FAQs.

    This app shows great potential, but after repeated attempts to get some type of support from the company to establish the LinkedIn profile I “want” to use, it’s fallen an deaf ears. Software with no support is useless. Great software, bad business.

      I tried sending this email using another email app and got the same message. I know Office 365 is having some server issues so I’m just going to post the issue here;

      ******Original Email******
      Thank you so much for giving me an opportunity to speak with someone.

      I can login to the WP7 with LinkedIn. The issue I have is as follows:

      1. I signed-up for an “UnSocial” account (via the WP7 app), thinking I’d have to register with UnSocial

      2. After doing so, I closed the app and rebooted the app

      3. Clicked on sign-in and only then noticed the sign-in with LinkedIn icon

      4. Signed in with LinkedIn

      5. When I search for people “near” me, the original account (the very plain one I created when I first signed up) is the only one that shows up

      6. So as of right now, when I look to see what my account looks like to others, it appears that it’s not my LinkedIn account which is what I’d prefer

      Hope this makes sense, if not I will try to clarify more. Again… thank you for the contact!
