You know what the first thing that popped to my mind?

How eerily it looks like a regular email client!  It’s only a small leap of imagination to see how you’ll easily start to fall behind in the deluge of information and suffer from the inevitable spamming that is forthcoming.  It’ll be just like dealing with the common frustrations of today’s email client.  Social status apps: Innovative or different?  It’s more like we’re coming a full circle back to where we started out in the first place.
