Brightkite now in Public Beta

December 3rd, 2008

A little after midnight last night we dropped our invite-only status and launched into public beta! I can’t express how excited we are to reach this milestone. Private beta testers, thank you for all your community support and feedback, we could not have made this happen without you.

What does this mean?

Well for starters the open public beta significantly devalued any Brightkite invitations floating around

Invitations are no longer required and sign up is now open everyone. In addition, you can now invite your friends to join Brightkite without restriction.

Even though we are announcing the public beta today, keep watch over the next few weeks for a significant iPhone update, additional mobile support, additions to our API and a host of new features and improvements.
