Sean Parker, the founder of Napster just came out with a new social network called Airtime. It is like a re-invented version of Chatroulette, except you are connecting to people via your Facebook connections and common interests. I am not sure about how viable this is as a business network yet. From the conversations that I had below you can see why this is still a little too early to be completely effective for business.
However, I did have a blast! I got to wear my Indiana Jones hat with one call and then discussed the Hangover in another call as I was asked whether I had nights like that? Check below to learn more about this and also whether or not this is a good tool for helping you find targeted clients for business.
Airtime Conversation With Jason & Jack
Airtime Conversation With Nayeli
This is a cool idea if you just want to hang out with some random people for 30 minutes. However, it was a cool idea when Chatroulette launched 2 years ago as well. My personal thoughts are that this social network will need to have a few million people before it is useful instead of the 13,000 that had set up the Facebook app when I signed up last night plus the thousands who have signed up over the past few hours.
Since everything is based upon common interests, you need to have enough people with common interests. Especially for entrepreneurs we need a lot of entrepreneurs on the site to make it worthwhile. That way, you can just sit on Airtime to prospect for business.
You heard the interview with Nayeli & you now want to know about the worst Hangover I ever had. Here is the deal. You get 100 Facebook shares to this post and I will spill the beans. Otherwise, all other comments below should be about Airtime!
