Call out, converse and connect with Beckons!
So if you're cool with putting the real you out there to possibly connect and converse on a social or professional level with anyone within a 150 ft. range, we're glad you found us.
The concept behind beckons is simple, it works somewhat like a hyper-local Craigslist. You just throw out a beckon - a location appropriate message and anyone else within range can chat you up. It can be a great networking tool at a conference, a social tool at school or at the bar, a way to promote your unique skills, an opportunity to meet someone at ballpark, event, supermarket, etc. It's here to help you meet new people, just download it and do with it what you will.

One last thing - in order to keep the profiles as authentic as possible and the trolls that love anonymous social apps at bay, we currently require that you log in via Facebook. This means that you are putting the real you out there in order to make authentic professional and social connections...which is the point, right?
So give beckons a try to get your message out to meet someone new.
CALL OUT. CONVERSE. CONNECT.
