iPling , an iPhone designed SMS-based anonymous mobile social software tool, allows users to discover and communicate with other nearby iPling users while safeguarding privacy with anonymous identity abstractions.
Social networking has, up to now, relied on invitation systems. IPling changes the status quo by giving complete strangers the ability to find each other and interact with the confidence that they each control their own information and the experience itself. Until now, there has simply been no way to connect with others based on their proximity and interests unless they are already friends or friends of friends.
Identity abstraction is becoming quite popular—jaxtr is another MoSoSo that allows strangers to call your mobile via your preferred Social site without knowing your phone number.
