TECHNOLOGY BLOG – A NEW SOCIAL APP FOR FREELANCERS (TWITTER, LINKEDIN AND YELP COMBINED)

Yes, it's another social networking site, but my job is to keep you informed.  This one takes a unique twist on an old concept.

The name of the network is called Blellow.  The main premise behind this application is to help freelancers find work, collaborate and get things done. 

The interface is extremely similar to Twitter.  The thing I like about this site is that is has discussion threads on specific topics.  For example, if you were looking for an answer about how to use your QuickBooks or Quicken.  You could post a question.  The entire community can view your question and those who are experts comment on how to solve your issue. 

Now this is the best part about this community.  You would then thank the person or people who helped you a "Kudos" which helps those experts rise in rankings.  This allows potential employers to find experts locally.

Jobs and paid projects can be posted to the site for a nominal fee.  For those who will use the site long-term, there is storage available at $10 for 10GB.  If you want to share any files with your colleagues, friends or specific groups, this is a great convenience instead of bogging down your email.

"Just as Yammer is Twitter for business, Blellow seems to be Twitter for freelancers."
