The Thumb (Free) iPhone Social Networking app lets you get a second opinion in a matter of seconds, lets you provide your own opinion, as well as start conversations with real people — real fast — from posts or images you provide. There are hundreds of social networks out there, some like Facebook and Twitter that are now deeply ingrained into many people’s lifestyles. Just when you think there couldn’t possibly be another competitive social network out there, along comes the Thumb iPhone app that provides a new type of social engagement.
This free iPhone app lets you post an image either from the web through a Google search, your camera roll, or from a fresh pic you take with your camera. You can then ask a question, target who you want to send it to and wait for the responses to come in. The responses come in two ways: voting (thumbs up, thumbs down or neutral votes) and comments. Since people like to get stuff, you can provide the people commenting a star for their comment if you like it. Now, giving is as good as receiving, right? You can also vote on other people’s posts (images) and answer their questions, some of which are truly valid questions, like “Should I get an iPhone,” “Where is the best hotel in Orlando,” and so on. The categories or filters are extensive, so when either asking or voting you can select your target audience for both. When posting you can even target male or female and send posts to friend only if desired. You can sign up for Thumb for free either using your Facebook profile or creating one with an email for free, but you must be over the age of 13.
Currently, according to analytics people using the Thumb app (which is also available on the Android) are spending hours monthly doing so. I posted several questions and within seconds I began to receive responses. All is based on an image and your question. My suggestion is that you ensure you submit only decent to high-quality images for people to rate, categorize it correctly and ask a good relevant question and you will be amazed at the amount of responses. I put up a question as follows: “Would you buy a smaller iPad for a smaller price?” The question got around 70 responses in 20 minutes with 18 people leaving comments, that is powerful information for anyone trying to get feedback. One word of caution: I became highly addicted to this app in minutes and found myself using it for several hours. You can engage with others and have real-time conversations with complete strangers, but in my case my conversations were very authentic and stayed on topic. Thumb may be the next big social network because it is like a reality TV show app (in a sense), but one where you can actually provide input into other people’s lives — kind of freaky, huh?
