Jig is a new microblogging service explicitely for requests. Such vertical attempts are around for a while already, but what is impressive about Jig is the consequent realization and at second the popularity of its founder, Joshua Schachter, who has already brought Delicious to the market according to Netimperative.
The idea to answer requests by commercial offers and solutions is giving the service a b2b character and by using the common comparison with Twitter with its large amount of applications and todays integration opens up a lot of opportunities to such a service. Whereas the content of Jig reminds on classifieds currently, following may already be rewarding. To follow the content one may either subscribe directly or follow by Twitter integration according to the Jig blog. For more visit Jig.
