Recently, I wrote about Blackberry BlackBerry Messenger As A Social Network.
One of the responses that I got to that article was from a gentleman who referred to BBM as the 3rd social network after Facebook and Twitter. he also added that he did more social networking via BBM than via the fore-mentioned two.
In addition, we now have an active Mobility blog BBM Group with 21 members. That number was achieved within four (4) days.
Recently, I found the display picture of one of my BBM contacts to my liking, but I didn’t feel like saying anything though I really wanted to appreciate it in some way. I found myself wishing for a “Like” button similar to what obtains on Facebook. That way, a user can like a Display Picture or Personal Message belonging to any BBM contact.
It is possible that BBM can be further enhanced as a social network. Do you have any other ideas?
PS: In the meantime, if you want to hookup on BBM, here’s my PIN:
