Weather is one of the most common topics in social occasions. This article introduces a new social website named Metwit where people can share real-time weather conditions using tags, tweets or personalized expressions, and the information will be immediately displayed on Google maps. This real-time collective weather source not only fills a need for original and real-time information, but also helps deal with some weather-related events. Besides, based on the locations and weather conditions, the network can actively involve people through weather related content and share current activities or even meet friends around.
As you may have noticed weather forecasts are sometimes inaccurate, do you think this “social weather” network is something that you will trust and use? Where do you see the future of it? And beyond the basic real-time weather collecting function, what other added functions can make the network become more valuable and interactive?
