Fueled by alcohol, Livr wants to make social networking fun again

Posted: , by Luis D.

Brilliant ideas are simple to explain, and usually involve alcohol. That makes Livr a fine example of one. See, social networks aren't so cool anymore. Your mom is on there watching, granny's sharing your awkward childhood photos left and right, everyone's posting baby photos or arguing about politics, and most unfortunately, you can't share your drunken shenanigans with the world because you won't dare look your boss in the eye.

Here comes Livr - the alcoholic social app that you're not allowed to enter until you prove you're drunk as a sailor. Every time. With a breath analyzer attachment. Fancy a pint?

For something with such a light-hearted premise, Livr is very well thought out. After you gain entrance to it by all means required, you can access features such as Truth or Dare, Drunk Dial, Hot Spots, and Blackout. Truth or dare is a classic staple of real-world drunken gameplay. Drunk dial lets you call up a random Livr user. Hot spots maps out the most packed and inebriated venues in your vicinity. And Blackout is the button to make the app forget everything it remembered from last night... although pressing the button will do little to stop the one in your company (you don't drink alone, do you?) who stays on the sober side from recalling it in front of that hottie you've been chatting up. Ahh, the joys of life!

Livr will be launching in the next quarter, although it seems its two founders are actively seeking some investors at the moment. Probably to pay for their drinks.

Finally! A social network for alcoholics! Lol. But in all all seriousness I think this could take off big time for college kids... In Canada anyway ;)

Might have to buy some shares in this, I see a lot of growth and potential, especially with iPhone users, since that's the most popular phone I always see at bars ;)

Sorry... Had to. Lol

honestly think this is kind of a good idea. i don't think it promotes becoming anything that is not already being promoted in drinking and the "bar scene" already. will i use it? no. nor me or my wife will. but, i think it is an idea worth investing in and has great opportunity to grow. all they need to do is add a call a taxi button.
