This is taken from the ‘Bump’ website:
When you bump, if we find a match with a phone that felt the same bump, our servers ask each phone to send up the contact information each user chose to share, but nothing more. If and only if both users then confirm that the match is indeed correct will the contact information be sent down to the other person
I wonder if ‘poking’ is going to be passé and we’ll all be ‘bumping’ soon?
From a corporate perspective, it could be the end of business cards as we know it.
From an Islamic perspective, beware who you allow your phone to bump into!!
