Social media has taken over the better portion of our life -- if not Twitter or Facebook, it's Foursquare telling our friends where we are. Or the new Google+. But if you're more the stay-at-home kind, GetGlue is perfect for you. GetGlue, a social networking site that allows users to share what they are thinking about, listening to, or watching, is a service that has taken off in the past few months, and it can kind of be addictive.
For folks like myself, who spend most of their days working from home, a lot of my day consists of listening to music, or having the TV playing various TV shows, so networks like Foursquare and Facebook places don't help me, since I am not leaving the house, but GetGlue allows me to share things with my friends, and get cool stickers in reward for sharing.
After launching the application you will notice a very user friendly user interface, giving you options to check in to things like television shows, movies, music, what they are thinking about or even if they are drinking wine. At the start of a new show or movie simply launch the application, search for the title, and check in for your very own chance to gain a new sticker. While checking in you can add a comment, and after checking in you are able to rate whether you enjoy it or not.
Whether sitting around with some friends and drinking some wine, or chatting about a celebrity, GetGlue allows you to check in to all these topics, giving you even more chances to gain some stickers. One of the coolest things about GetGlue is the stickers, and after you have unlocked 20 or more of them you can request to have physical copies of the stickers mailed to you from GetGlue, which is something you can't do with any other social network. So whether an avid lover of television shows or movies, or just the occasional watcher, this free application is sure to add some additional fun. Download links and more shots available after the break.
