  5. 5. What is Koprol?
  6. 6. Koprol is a location-based social networking site, aimed for Indonesians. It tells you where your friends are and what they’re doing, and more interestingly, who’s nearby and what’s happening around you.
  7. 7. Like favorite social sites, you can share your “status” or short posts, but with location!
  8. 8. You can post photos you just took, and add comments to create interesting discussions
  9. 9. Search a place by typing whatever you can think of. Restaurant, mall, neighborhood.
  10. 10. See what people are doing at different spots within an area
  11. 11. See what’s happening within a building. Who’s eating, buying, watching what.

  18. 18. September 2008 One of the earlier mockups felt too much like a regular microblogging site
  19. 19. November 2008 Header indicate location, but still need stronger sense of place
  20. 20. December 2008 Multi-column layout provide more place information. Tabs show names of places.
  21. 21. December 2008 Tabs moved to the left side, allowing content to move closer to the top.
  22. 22. February 2009 The layout we have now. Stream of posts in middle column, and stream filters on the left.
  23. 23. March 2009 Our layout probably made sense. Somebody has a similar idea.
