Up-and-coming social network Path has been getting quite a bit of buzz lately for its user-friend limits and its closed nature. The premise is fairly simple: take a photo, tag it in at least one of three categories named “People”, “Place”, and “Thing” and share it with up to 50 friends, but no more.
Path aims to simplify tagging images by the use of auto-complete for all three of its fields. Whether suggesting what you’re about to type in the Things field, auto-completing names for the People field or listing local venues based on your GPS, Path attempts to take the guess work out of what to post with your photo, by simply stating the facts.
The limit will have users who are savvy with social networking shocked for a moment, but the minimalistic design and function of the app and the website make Path a concise, easy-to-use network.
