Do You Dopplr?

I never thought I would be fond of social networking sites.  When I started with Friendster, I didn't realize that there are countless networking sites existing on the net, each with its special features and causes.  I was really elated when I learned about Travelers For Travelers (TFT), and I did not hesitate on signing up knowing that I'd be joining an online community of individuals who share the passion for traveling.  Moreover, sharing notes and helping one another in the pursuit of satiating the appetite of setting foot on different lands and experiencing different cultures really sets TFT apart from other networks.  So, if you haven't signed up, I highly suggest that you do.

Anyway, throughout my online existence, I've found another travel-related networking site - Dopplr.  I must admit it's less interactive than TFT, but it is as interesting.  If Twitter answers the question, "What are you doing?", Dopplr answers the question "Where are you in the world?".

Aside from its sleek and easy-to-use interface, an interesting feature is that it can be posted as a widget in your blog, or in other online accounts as well, so that visitors will know where you are in the world, and where you plan to be.  I think this is great for people who love to travel and blog.  It adds an engaging feature in the blog that would make readers anticipate on your next destination.

Go ahead.  Try it and tell us what you think.  Do you think Dopplr is something we could incorporate in our TFT profiles?

He Quing, great post. Dopplr is a cool tool. I think it will be awesome if we could embed something like Dopplr on TFT.

I am dugging into the widgets at the moment, see what we can learn how other sites like Dopplr make it possible to distribute profiles and content.

Yeah, nice post!
Its very interesting to know this kind of sites, and the real possibility to make some sort of connections with TFT in the way to improve it, of course.There´s for sure more than one application that could be very useful for our site, like this one.
