As the Internet continues to become even more transparent, people are freely sharing information about themselves that they probably would have never shared even just a year or two ago. We’re used to sharing what we’re doing and where we’re going with our friends and even the public, but what about sharing what we’re buying? A service called Blippy is banking on the fact that people want to let the world know what they’re buying, and I have to say that I think this is going to be one of the next totally addictive services on the Internet.
The service works by enabling you to connect to your Visa, MasterCard, iTunes, Amazon, and other accounts so that whenever you make a purchase using one of the added accounts, it’ll automatically show up on your Blippy profile. Not only can people see what you bought, but they can also see how much it cost you. These purchases can be commented on and users can follow accounts. If you can get over the privacy issue, you’ll probably begin to realize just how important Blippy will most likely become.
