1.) Does the idea of being able to follow both you personal and business contacts , from both LinkedIn and Facebook, via a real-time smartphone application as they travel-seeing their personal photos and video while instantly being notified when users in your network are in your vicinity appeal to you?
2.) Do you like the idea of having discount proximity notifications pushed to your phone for destinations exclusively that members in your network have visited while you travel?
3.) If the destination where one of your contacts is traveling appeals to you-would you be interested in an option to be connected to a travel website for cost comparisons?
4.) Would you like the option of setting certain restrictions on Facebook and LinkedIn users seeing your travels?
5.) The setting for being alerted of a contact's location is currently planned to be 50 miles away from their home location, if they spend at least 2 hours in that location, and then you would receive the alert that they are travelling to a new place you may want to view. Is this distance and time a good estimate for your needs with this app?
6.) As a business, would advertising your business on a platform such as this appeal to you?
7.) Status levels are attained based on the level of participation by the user/subscriber. If you are someone who would like to use this type of application, which type of status level do you think you would achieve (how much would you use this app?) (please see page 6 of slide presentation)?
|8.) If you said no to advertising on this app, why is that?||9.) Do you have any recommendations that you would add to this app?|

Technical Entrepreneur class mate said: make more clear how you have a competitive advantage over the apps Yelp and Foursquare, with video/photo element added to them. How does it compare to SnapChat, which is successful since you do not have to keep the photos sent to you. Also, in terms of making revenue, the advertisement fees are always decreasing, and perhaps you can refer to how FourSquare is also making money from advertising.
