Please join us as early adopters of Dartmouth Buzz. When you install Dartmouth Buzz, you join a community of users who live and work on the Dartmouth Campus. Community members can post and view timely, useful comments, and know where other community members are located (all while remaining anonymous). When used widely, Dartmouth Buzz will make the Campus a better place to live and study. Dartmouth Buzz provides anonymous, real-time chat as well as crowd counts for all areas on campus. Throughout the day, community members will be able to see how many Buzz users are at any location. When enough community members have installed Dartmouth Buzz, community members will know whether their favorite places are crowded or not. Community members will also have access to useful information about what is going on at that location. In order for this to work, however, we need your participation.
Real-time location based comments: Community members can post and view anonymous, real-time comments anywhere on campus. This enables you to know what is going on and to make informed decisions about where you want to be. As a member of the Buzz community, we hope that you will post useful comments. It’s easy for community members to help each other save time and make better choices.
Anonymous chat: Dartmouth Buzz also provides anonymous, location-based chat. This is a great way to save time, share information, and maybe even make a few new friends on campus.
Population density data: Dartmouth Buzz enables users to see anonymous population density, or crowd levels, throughout the Dartmouth campus. This will save you time by enabling you to make informed choices about where you want to be on campus at any time. This will help you to decide whether to go somewhere now or later.
Our mission: Our mission is to effectively harness the location-based information that each of us is generating all day long to make life better and more efficient in a multitude of ways. This will be accomplished without compromising the privacy of any individual. We are starting with small communities of users, but our ultimate goal is to make this technology available to everyone.
We need your help: We are looking for students who live and breathe social media to serve as marketing interns. Please contact us, if you are interested
