It has been around for a few months now, but I’ve just discovered the wonder of Wakoopa. The software social networking site is designed to keep tabs on the tools and games that you’re using on your PC or Mac and gives you access to a huge amount of information on the what’s hot and what’s not in the application world.
Thanks to intelligent tagging and categories, Wakoopa points you in the direction of programs that may be of interest to you, based on the type of software you use regularly. It’s great for making friends with like-minded computer users and people who enjoy the same apps as you, allowing you to hook up and share tasty tips for iTunes or exchange those treasured memories of the times you’ve used WinZip.
I was very impressed with the amount of live data and stats that Wakoopa provides, and I was unaware that some of the programs it listed on my page were even running. The popularity of the site proves that there is a strong community within the world of software. However, I’m not sure that I’ll keep with the service in case my boss catches me using Limewire or Windows Live Messenger when I’m supposed to be working.
