No, it’s not a new social network for pervs and heavy-breathers in raincoats. It’s a twitter clone called Coathangr that doesn’t ask “What are you doing” but instead wants to know “What are you wearing”.
Basically, it’s target audience is going to be those fashionista’s that are into clothes, handbags, shoes and other accessories. Members get to share what’s in their closet and what they want to get. Others can help you find what you’re looking for and even help save you money by finding the best deals in your area or online.
The timeline looks very familiar, huh? You can just use text to share what you got on or you can take a photo or upload one you already have. You can follow other member’s closets just as you do on Twitter.
It’s an interesting concept but I wonder if there’ll be enough of an audience to sustain it longterm. I also happen to know a bunch of people who already do this kind of this on Twitter, the most popular being @JuliaRoy who also uses Flickr and 12secs to share her fabulous taste in fashion. Will she and others stop using Twitter and these other services to share their fashion updates on Coathangr instead? I don’t know but I guess we will see.
Speaking of raincoats, I guess we could see a few in some closets on Coathangr, huh?
