a single female and I downloaded single scene at home for my iPhone and
tried it out. Now it has a pin showing my location at home.
How can I remove my pin from the map?
Single Scene is
a confidential application, it is not a good idea to reveal your
location while you are at a private location like work or home.
The application was designed with the idea that you could
locate places to meet other people. It is not recomended that
you use it at home, since there are many other people currently using
the application and it could draw attention to your home.
Even if other individuals are using the application
innocently, they may see that there are people there and think it is a
location to hang out. It's not only a bad idea for your
personal safety, but it attracts others to go out of there way thinking
they are heading to a commercial location, parks and recreation or
other place of venue. To avoid having this occur, be sure to
go out to a more popular location and run the Single Scene app again to
move your pin. This will cause your pin to be displayed at a
different location. If you forget to do that, your pin may be
removed automatically but there is no guaranty on the time the pin will
be removed. So it is recomended that you go to a public place
and run the app to reset your pin to that location.
a male and I tried single scene and I was wondering about the options
like my e-mail. I don't want anybody to see my personal
information. Do I need that information, or can I leave it
on the version
of the Single Scene app, there may be different options for you to fill
in. The confidential information is confidential, and nobody
else can see it. Some versions of the app require you to fill
in the information in order to use the app. In addition,
there is a part of the app that is available for others to see, but it
is the same information that everybody else is selecting.
That category is only for the information that you want to be
displayed with your pin. It does not reveal anything specific
about you and will not reveal anything about you that could reveal your
personal identity. It is possible, however for you to self
identify in the comments. Remember that your personal
identity should remain that way for your safety. The
information that you provide is your responsibility. If you
provide information like blond hair, blue eyes so that people can find
you at a paticular location, remember that there are both good and bad
people, so this might not be a good idea. We recommend that
you use the comment part of the app to specify information about the
place that you are located at so others know about it. Some
recommended examples include: This place is jumping, I like it here,
this is a cool croud, there is a live country music band, great DJ,
like the food here, just shipped a package, the oranges are fresh or
anything else that you can think of that is not disclosing of your
a married female and I noticed my husband had the Single Scene app on
his iPhone. Should I be concerned about this?
don't know, but if you
get Single Scene maybe you can find out where he is and check into it.
The chances are very slim that it should be something to
worry about. Around 99+ percent of the people that use Single
Scene don't use it for dating at all. They simply use it as a
meeting tool and put code names in the comments like "Joe32" to help
there colleges locate them confidentially. The original
design of the application was to provide a live venue for people that
want to go out and have fun, but it has since become a social
networking and business tool that is generally used for meetups with
a married female and I use Single Scene on my iPhone for business with
my colleges after work, and I noticed an I'm at home button, but I
don't want anybody to know I'm at home.
have different options. You may see buttons like I'm at home,
I'm at work, remove me or something else. Those buttons
simply remove your pin from view so that if you are in a private or
personal place where it is not a good idea to attract or reveal your
location to others, your pin is removed from that location.
It is highly recomended that you make sure the single scene
app does not give you information like "there is no network available"
that you go to another location to either change you pin location or
remove altogether. In your case your version of the app
either doesn't include a message that says "your pin has been removed"
or it was overlooked.
a single female with a lot of single female friends and I got single
scene and when I used it, it displayes a map and a pin where I am
located. I've heard a lot about it and wanted to try it out,
but I don't get it. How do I use this app?
people located in
highly populated areas don't seem to have this problem with the Single
Scene app. Most likely, the cause of this is because you are
in an area that either has a small population base or your using the
app on a day that nobody is going out. We tend to find that
the app is used in higher volumes on Friday and Saturday nights for
some reason. In lesser populated regions of the world, it is
recommended that you tell your friends to get the Single Scene app.
The more people that use the app, the more useful it is.
It's simple a real time right now application that shows were
people are and whats going on. It doesn't provide any content
other that what you as a user of the application provide. It
is recomended that all your friends use it and comment so that it
becomes useful in your region. Show them the app and explain
to them that if they use the app, it will show additional pins and not
just yours. Ask them to get Single Scene and when they do,
try it out and make unique comments so you can determine which pin is
you and which pins are your friends. If you are standing
close to each other when you do this, use the multi-touch feature of
your phone (basically two fingers to spread the map as if to zoom in)
and you'll be able to seperate the pins far enough away to be able to
touch or click on them to identify your individual comments.
a married father, with kids and my wife and I were wondering if we
could use this to find our kids at the amusement park?
that is a great way
to use the Single Scene app. The only problem is that Single
Scene was designed for confidentiality. So your kids would
need to update there location on a regular bases. Have them
get the Single Scene app and let them know to be careful using it.
Have them put a code in the comment that is unique to your
family like "1 GREAT FAMILY." The main problem with this
however, is that single scene was originally designed for individuals
and friends to find a place of venue like a resturuant, movie theater,
street fair and provide information about the location so that others
in the same frame could determine if they are interested in going to
that location right now. Since it is designed to work from
real people right now instead of preset data from the past or from
market advertising. This basically means that if many others
are at the amusement park doing the same thing, it may be just as
difficult to find your childrens pins as it is looking through the
crowd. However, every situation is different so give it a
try, It can't hurt. But keep in mind that the
information provided should remain confidential, so please be sure to
explain that to your children and make sure they understand that before
letting them off on there own.
not single, but I've heard a lot of buzz about this app for the iPhone.
What is it?
a very popular
application used on the smartphones to locate and help you find venue.
It was originaly designed for the happy hour and club scenes.
But it's popularity has grown into other areas of use, all of
which arn't known. It seems to be realted to two major
things. One is the social networking that has become very
popular and the other is the ratings of service. People
generally use the tool like a kind graffity stating basically that "I
was here" and "this was what I thought of it." It's
popularity for this use seems to be that things change, like farmers
markets, fairs and events that are not constant and people are
realizing the use of technology to determine information right now.
Chances are that if they saw a review for something or place
like a dry cleaners, they have already read the reviews and are aware
of the service. However when you are traveling and looking
for a laundry mat or something to do for the evening after work or on
vacation, the tool is very use full for sharing what is going on right
now. You'll notice for example, that on a rainy day there are
much less pins showing on the map than on a sunny day, since people
will generally tend to go out when the weather is nice. Also,
the information that you see in the comments is usually something that
a person is doing right now rather than something they did in the past,
since they seem to be constently updating there situation in the social
networking area to display to there friends what they are up to at the
precise moment, posibly to let them know something that was previously
communicated like I'm going shopping, then to the movies and then I'll
meet you someplace for lunch. Then there friends can check on
there status or display were they are going to coagulate for lunch.
Of course nobody really knows what the tool is used for
exactly, so when you you tell your friends about it, you may want to
ask them what your "click" could use it for rather than it's indended
purpose, which is to share how entertaining a paticular location is at
