They are currently working on building out other social networking platforms.
Metagoo is like the inverse of Pinterest. Instead of pinning virtual things online, you can pin virtual tags on real life items.

You could save your friends some time and money.

You should be familiar with FourSquare and how you can check-in places so everyone knows what you are up too. BlendIn, wants to take a slightly different approach to this. They want you to check-in but only share it with who you want too. So, if you were trying to get your group of friends together for a night out, you can check-in and message a certain group of friends to come join you instead of blasting it to the entire social world.
