Do you know idipops? It’s a new social network from France that is being mainly used to share ideas, tips, advices in the services field while also being able to find professionals to realize them.
Let’s say you have an issue with your computer, that is not booting. First thing, geek as you are (as we are…), you will check the POST self-test (Bip bip bip) to understand if it is a hardware failure. But non geek won’t probably know it…but they can check some advices or explanation/articles done by some pro. Like this article on how to understand the POST results (bip bip). And at the same time, the non geek could contact the professional that has written the article (or follow him/her) to ask further advices, or bring the computer to its shop.
This could be extended to a lot of professions (plumber, decoration, nanny, etc…).
On top of building an ‘actionable’ social network similar to Twitter (With followers, likes, etc..), Idipops is only oriented services and allow people to find professional/experts at the same time.
And for those professionals, it allows them to find customers in a different way, modern and oriented “content” + “social”.
Obviously Idipops has also some more standard features, like a map with all the pro around, some good deals page, etc…
It is currently in French only, but it will be translated soon to English (Hopefully).
