Introducing the Brightkite Wall

Introducing the Brightkite Wall

November 19th, 2008

Imagine if everyone around you, even non-Brightkite users, had a window into the live stream of notes, photos and checkins being posted at a given place. With the Brightkite Wall this is now possible. The Brightkite Wall allows you to turn any monitor, projector or TV into a live interactive placestream display. The wall is perfect for conferences, live events, bars, trade shows, retailers, or just displaying on your desktop.

The best part about the Wall is it’s free, self serve and users can participate on the fly without a preexisting Brightkite account.

Try the Brightkite Wall out for yourself:

  • Browse to the desired place.
  • Choose the Wall tab and click on the embedded Brightkite Wall to go full screen.
  • If desired you can customize wall. Click on the “Customize this wall” link and follow the directions.
  • Tip: To see more activity on a given Wall browse to city, state or country All Brightkite posts bubble up from street > city > state > country.

View the Wall for the entire USA.

The Brightkite Wall is still in beta so if you encounter any issues or have any suggestions, let us know.

Is it possible to grab embed code for the walls? Or is that coming as you polish the feature?

That's a really great feature. I think our new travel center in Umeå should display this on a big monitor. :)

Wow this is a great idea to put up in public places like bars and events. I could see this also getting more users to use BrightKite. Great work and I am looking forward to seeing more.

wow, nice idea, I think that would really work outside retail stores where they can test out monitors and people could leave a message on the screen while walking by!!!
