Mobile people are all abuzz about Jaiku, that marries social networking with mobile presence. They call it rich presence.
Rich presence on Jaiku includes an IM-style away line, your phone profile (ring volume, vibrate), location (country, city/region, neigborhood), Bluetooth devices around, upcoming calendar events, and the duration how long your phone has been idle.
Though it works only on Series 60 phones (though not on S60 version 3) it has some serious potential of keeping track of your friends and family. Nice app to build a micro social network. You can put your presence button on your blog, MySpace page or whatever. I still think it is best suited for on the go presence. We will follow these guys closely. Meanwhile, try it out and let us know what you think. (via)

Implementation is pretty good
That is a very cool tool to show people what you are doing.
One of the most exciting services available for new phones. I’ve tried and looked for interesting ones since getting a Nokia N70 in April 2006, and Jaiku instantly had that something which lit my interest in it.
