What is the Grid?

1 January 2009

The Grid is a social network that uses your mobile phone to connect you with people, places and events around you. From your phone you can see which friends are in your area, chat to people across South Africa and share photos and videos wherever you are.
The Grid is overlayed on street maps, meaning you are able to tag content to specific addresses, recommend venues (eg, restaurants) and even find directions to venues recommended by others.
For your phone, The Grid is available as a downloadable Java application or, to those without Java capabilities, a WAP site. There is also a full-feature website as well as a handy Facebook Grid application for when you are stuck behind your computer.
