Shaker transforms Facebook into a virtual bar with real music
In case you can't view the video, here's a quick rundown of Shaker: It's a Facebook social game that takes all of your friends, and more importantly, friends of friends, and sticks them all into a virtual bar for a meet-and-greet.
It was also the grand prize winner of the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2011 start-up contest, beating out thirty other contestants for a Disrupt Cup and $50,000. For those of you who sport some social app savvy, another way to describe Shaker is that it's a mix of "Second Life, The Sims, and Turntable.fm" in one package, according to TechCrunch. If you love Playfish and EA's The Sims Social, Shaker promises to be The Sims Social for real.
