                “Potential uses are virtually endless with this global, open system. For example, you
                can make new connections in Australia prior to an upcoming trip, chat with a global
                community about carbon emissions or the latest NBA trade, and practice
                Portuguese with a new friend in Brazil,” Novik continued.
flyChat incorporates the entertaining nature of the iPhone to create a fun, gamelike
experience. Color-coded flies buzz on the screen to alert users if they’ve received a
message from a known friend or a soon-to-be friend from across the world. Using
the iPhone’s touch screen, people can attract or frighten away their flies. And at
night, flies turn into fireflies and light up the screen.

As expected with a social networking tool, members can decorate their profile page
with a photo and express themselves adding messages to a friend’s Wall. In
addition, points and medals are awarded based on the number of new connections
and friends made.

network today.
