Magnetu allows you to connect with similar people

A short article regarding Magnetu. Magnetu allows it’s users to broadcast their social network profiles to other users of the application thereby allowing like minded individuals to connect whether it be for dating or business reasons. On the one hand Magnetu could be viewed as a means of enhancing people’s ability to form new connections and/or friendships, alternatively others have construed it as a means of “big brother” tracking individuals. As someone who has a Facebook profile but who hardly ever uses the website I am not about to rush out and invest in Magnetu. I will, however monitor it’s impact on society with interest. Technology is, on the whole neither good nor bad, it all depends on how we (as humans) utilise it. For the article please visit http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/mimssbits/27399/
