Plancast has been around for awhile. I first became acquainted with this broadcasting plans site through a colleague who saw that I utilized Foursquare to enhance my visit experiences. Plancast doesn’t allow you to broadcast where you are as other geo-location apps do, but it does broadcast your plans of where you will be. By signing up for the service or allowing a Oath (authorization) of your Facebook or Twitter account, you can tweet or status message your plans to events.
You can also connect to other people and see what their plans are as well. In doing so, you may find about many events you didn’t know about. Also, if someone has the same “plan” as you (meaning they are going to be at the same event or location you are), you can add yourself to that plan and see others who are also attending. You can also follow other’s activities on Plancast by following the hashtag #PLAN on Twitter.
Plancast is pretty simple to use—and since I am not that technologically advanced, I would recommend it to beginners or advanced users. It’s not as popular as Facebook or Gowalla, but has a core cult following amongst true tech gurus and social networking and media brass.
Here is a snip of my Plancast:
Pretty user friendly. Basic interface and profile as well.
