Although the name may sound like it's either an online closet filled with your best neckwear or an online list of the best Asian-based cocktails, the actual concept behind MyTies.com exceeds any of the aforementioned.
MyTies is a free iPhone app that allows its users to create their own private social network with their friends, family, or co-workers. I like to think of it as a mobile-based social intranet platform. Instead of aggregating all of your activities everywhere (which you can still do), MyTies allows you to focus on the people that matter to you most only. You can pick and choose who you invite into your MyTies group and keep your network as small or make it as large as you'd like.
As a business owner, MyTies is a very important sign of how I might conduct business in the future. Since we use online tools like Yammer and GoPlan now to communicate internally on our computers at work, it only makes sense to start to think about adapting these strategies to mobile devices soon. It's a natural evolution.
Please download the FREE app and try it for yourself by visiting MyTies.com.
