BumpIn is a social interaction application that, when enabled, lets you see the profiles of other BumpIn users who are currently viewing the same page is you. To use BumpIn, you’ll need to register for an account and create a personal profile (complete with picture to make it easy to identify other users upon arriving at a page). The BumpIn app will show up as a console (somewhat resembling the Google Talk interface) as a sidebar of a page you are visiting, and you can use it to chat with other users and comment on the page you’re visiting. BumpIn’s sidebar also lets you add friends from other social networks and IM services (such as google Talk) and, more interestingly, you could find people with similar interests to add to your buddy list.
What makes BumpIn different from other competitors, such as me.dium, is BumpIn’s scalable architecture, designed to scale to millions of users without requiring a re-design of the system.
