Timeinb5.com – Socializing At The Airport
TimeinB5 is social networking platform that is intended for people who are stranded at any major airport in the US. The idea is that they will use it to communicate with people who are in a similar situation, and have something of a more amenable time by exchanging messages back and forth.
Also, a system like this one can be effectively used by people who are looking for local advice. For example, this was one of the messages that was highlighted on the main page when I was checking the site out: “I’m planning on flying into Philly in a few weeks and wonder if anyone can recommend the best way to get over to Delaware?”
In that sense, TimeinB5 is more than a mere tool to pass the time when you have just nothing better to do. It is a platform through which locals can lend a hand to people from all over the country who are visiting their hometowns for the very first time.
It will be interesting to see how internationalized can this site become – the premise is interesting, and there is not such a thing as an airport that knows no delays anywhere in the world.
