Micro Photo Blogging
Use your iPhone to take pictures, Manage your wave on iPhone or on the echowaves.com web site.
Pictures you take compose a wave. You can mix your wave with other waves, which will create a continuous stream.
Echowaves is not your typical social network. Things that take it apart from the others:
Primary focus of echowaves is mobileWhile there is echowaves.com web site, you really want to use iPhone to get the most out of echowaves.
Echowaves is simpleSimplicity is the goal, EW offers minimalistic user interface, EW offers limited set of features, but these features are perfected to an extreme.
Echowaves is all about picturesThere are no text comments or messages, use your iPhone camera to express yourself or to update your friends on what you are currently up to.
Echowaves is seriously anti spamEW will never send you any emails, EW never asks you about your email.
Echowaves is taking privacy concerns to an extremeEW does not know who you are and never stores any tracking data.
Echowaves is not your typical social network:
While there are plenty of social networks in existance, we felt that non of them does exctly what we want -- so the echowaves was born.
Actually, all of social networks these days try to do everything and, as a result, they do not do a specific thing very well.
We strive to keep echowaves simple, secure and reliable.
Echowaves is Micro Photo Blogging:
Take pictures with your phone, as many as you want, where ever you go, what ever you do -- just keep snapping. We strongly believe -- it's much easier to snap a picture, than to type a 140 characters to tell your story.
Echowaves respects your privacy:
We strongly believe that your privacy is what you should be in control, not your social network. As such, it's crucial to keep things simple from the beginning.
In echowaves nothing happens by default -- if you are sending a blending request to other wave -- it must always we confirmed. Only when both waves agree to blend -- only then the blending relationship will be established.
Every modern social network sends out tons of email (spam) -- except for echowaves. Echowaves does not even asks you for your email address when you register a wave -- because we strongly believe, that knowing your email address reveils too much personal information about you, so we avoid it.
It helps to think about echowaves as a metaphor. This is very simple, yet -- very strong metaphor. Here is how the metaphor corresponds to the terms you maybe more familier with:
Account == Wave
Sign in to your account == Tune into wave
Sign out == Tune Out
Stream of messages == EchoWave
Sharing == Blending
Waving == telling your story with pictures taken on your iPhone
Echowaves is instant -- there is no quicker way to share a photo stream, than to snap a bunch of pictures on your iPhone, then switch to echowaves application to have them natuarally flow over to your wave.
Over time echowave fades out (just like a real wave, or like an echo) -- you can only see 100 last pictures in your echowave.
Echowaves is still very young:
Echowaves is running in test drive mode -- early adopter's feedback is highly appreciated.
