Open Garden’s FireChat app is useful for several other purposes rather than locating the political protesters in Hong Kong. It can be revolutionize according to your interaction with your customers and employees.
One of the most popular mobile social networking apps FireChat is much usefull, but there are chances that you had never heard of it. If you are the one of political protester in Hong Kong or Iraq or if had you attended the Burning Man art and entertainment festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert than you must be aware about it. In all of these places most of the participants used FireChat; as an temporary wireless mesh network, which allows smartphones to communicate with each other without any internet connection, network or call. For the protesters of Iraq and Hong Kong, the attraction is obvious because they want to communicate throughout an area without the interference of authorities.
