All About Poken
Pokens are key chain attachments that make the transition from real-world interaction to online social networking easier. And http://www.pokenzoo.com offers the largest, latest (and limited) selection of pokens in the United States.
Here’s how it works: At a friend’s party or at the park with your kids, poken users interested in quickly exchanging details of your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and MySpace accounts simply touch the palms of your four-fingered pokens, which use short-range RFID to transfer all your social networking profiles to each other. Plug the poken into a USB port, and the data is transferred to your personal poken profile at http://www.doyoupoken.com. It’s that simple.
Already know all your friends' profiles? Even better. When you Poken and they Poken, you'll automatically have updates when they open a new social networking account.
Each poken stores up to 64 new contacts and warns its owner when it’s nearly full. Don’t worry about sharing any IDs you don’t want to, either, because your online poken account lets you choose which of your profiles you want to share.
Shipping is usually 2-3 days via the US Postal Service Priority Mail, and costs $4.95 for up to 12 Pokens--shipping on larger orders costs slightly more.
Poken Zoo is located 25 miles east of the Minneapolis St. Paul Twin City metro area in Hudson, Wisconsin.
