Path, I already have apps to share photos and status updates with online friends. Twitter and Instagram beat you to the punch for how I share things online. I’m not on Facebook; I am not looking for what seems like a more private version of the network.
Stamped, I know most the cool places of Memphis I like to visit. Knowing cool areas in other cities isn’t super useful for me. And while it’s interesting to see what online people are reading or listening to, this information also isn’t super useful — not to mention, it can be acquired via Twitter fairly easily in most cases.
I was working on a post regarding this exact thing, but I guess there isn’t much point since Stephen nailed it. I have been struggling to find a place for both of these applications in my workflow but have just totally failed. They are nice looking, but I just can’t see how they make sense, for the exact reasons above.
Path doesn’t seem to make sense with Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. And most of what people talk about on Stamped seem to be restaurants in cities I don’t live in.
