Placely is a social mapping and information service for travelers. Unlike current social mapping application in the market, Placely works with time delineation and allows travelers to retrieve members’ locations at any given time – past, present and future.
Based on travel information, Placely users can view future locations of members, coordinate travel based on other members’ travel plans and be notified when members are in the same geographic areas. Placely is also great for groups, such as alumni clubs, office organizations or recreational clubs, to track the whereabouts and travel destinations of large sets of people.
The Company launched its beta service in November 2007.
Similar companies, if no competitors, include Dopplr.
|Launch Date||November 13, 2007|
The travel calendar is at the core of the Placely service and allows members to add trips and meet other members.
