Social Networking Meetup: Sleepy Startups?

Didn’t make it to last night’s Social Networking Meetup? Neither did we. CenterNetworks’ Allen Stern has a summary of the presentations and some advice for entrepreneurs: speak up!

  • Recently funded Buddy Media, whose Jeff Ragovin and Aryeh Goldsmith are trying to make their “AceBucks” app the go-to currency on Facebook and other social networking sites. See our posts: AceBucks: Facebook’s PayPal Or Its Flooz? and Howard Lindzon: Why I Invested In That Facebook App Acebucks
  • Convos, a new group management tool
  • Snooth, slick-looking wine review site
  • RadiusIM, IM client with location-based social network
