Alike is a new type of search engine that allows people to connect on the proximity basis by the criteria of the key word, or in other words, it is a “keyword driven search engine for mobile”. This application looks into the near future and defines a very specific need for a geo-fenced keyword search on a proximity basis or tag-geofencing.
In a simple Tweeter like profile user can quickly search for others with similar tags, or post a tag to be found by others. User can select a radius for search and then identify all matches on a map. It can then further track the movement of selected users and update the status visually on the map.
If the tag word is not in the area, Awaiting Alike function will keep searching and will immediately notify you, when wanted user enters the proximity.
Alike as a future platform for tag-geofencing, will define the trend in this direction, allowing users quickly find the needed and track it’s movement - be that an object, a service, or a community.
