DailyBooth was founded February of 2009 by Jon Wheatley and Ryan Amos. The team, based out of Palo Alto, California, consists of less than five individuals, including CEO Brian Pokorny. Amos currently holds the position of Lead Developer. The site has received financial backing from several investors, including Chris Sacca, Kevin Rose, Aydin Senkut, Sequoia Capital, BetaWorks, Caterina Fake, and SV Angel.
With so many social networking websites out there, it is difficult to come up with an idea that is purely unique. DailyBooth stands out because it takes two popular ways to share information and combines them into one easy to use tool. Users can post their favorite photos as a way to show the world what they are doing or did today. The photos can be accompanied by a status update to provide more insight. The site also provides a live feed so the entire DailyBooth community can see what other users are posting and doing.
The DailyBooth website is very simple, but professional and well organized. The user is greeted by color images of users doing various things. The photos do not have to be of the user, they can be of anything relevant to the user’s current status or activities. The live feed makes it easy to see at a glance what others are doing, with large images and a lot of space provided for each status update.
New users can join DailyBooth by clicking on the green “Sign Up Now” button on the homepage. The top of the registration form includes a large, difficult to miss Facebook button. Luckily users are not corralled into Facebook registration only. Just below the button, the user can enter an email address, password and desired username. After providing the information and clicking the white and blue “Register Now” button, the user is taken directly to their newly created account and can begin using DailyBooth.
DailyBooth is available to all users for free. There are no subscription fees or additional charges for uploading images and posting status updates. This is reasonable because DailyBooth does not offer anything that isn’t already available for free through almost any social networking website. The site is still interesting. The user can focus on providing images that make up the core of their status updates and help paint a clear picture of what they are doing or thinking at the moment.
DailyBooth is ideal for anyone who frequently uses the internet to stay in touch with others. Fans of social networking can really appreciate the simplicity of DailyBooth. Even users who do not get online often can visit the profiles of family and friends and get updated at a glance. DailyBooth provides a great way to reach out to others through color images and status updates.
