JustSpotted, a near real-time celebrity stalking site launches. Created by Scoopler--makers of a now defunct real-time search engine--JustSpotted aggregates celebrity sightings from social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare and places them all on a Google Map complete with photos and location information. Scoopler describes JustSpotted as a "social and technology driven version of TMZ" with "updates, tweets and news for every celebrity on the planet."
According to pcworld.com here's how it works: JustSpotted will launch with a database of 7,000 celebrities, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fans of any of those several thousand celebs can then sign up to receive regular updates via e-mail or sent to their mobile devices. Users will also be able to upload celebrity sightings directly to the site, but it's not clear how that will work. Scoopler also says celebrities will have the option to "claim their news feeds" giving them direct access to a targeted base of fans.
It's not clear if JustSpotted will fare much better than Gawker as the new site is sure to outrage celebrities, not to mention their lawyers, if it becomes popular.
