iPoki – new GPS based social network is a voyeur’s delight


iPoki is either a work of genius or a disaster waiting to happen. Basically a community of GPS enabled people who’re willing to have their tracks monitored publicly is really quite…ah…interesting. The 7000 users currently seem to be enjoying it though, but apart from all the obvious stuff about stalking and the like, just what is valuable about letting the world watch you progress down the nearest commute route, complete with Twitters and gaily coloured markers? Beats us.

It’s a Spanish application and is obviously very clever technology, but what is it for? Sport you say? Ahhh…!

 Founded in summer 2006 in Galicia, Spain. Ipoki is a GPS-based social network. Ipoki lets you get the most of your GPS by connecting you with others to share geolocation information. Anyone can join Ipoki and everyone can share their location with their friends. We believe that Ipoki users should have control over their location information and who can see it. You can use our privacy settings at any time to control who can see what on Ipoki. From Barcelona to San Francisco, Stockholm to Cape Town, Ipoki is the way to find people wherever they are over the world, track their steps and stay in touch.

  • It’s hard enough dodging people I used to know on Facebook. This thing is going to tell them where I am at any given moment?

    Yeah that’s progress.
