It's funny how the most important aspect of Agloco (the Viewbar) seems to be the most mysterious. Okay...its obvious why, the Viewbar will not be released until the end of February. There is one screenshot of the Viewbar released by Agloco. This is the description Agloco gives for the Viewbar:
The Viewbar™ keeps track of your online interests and preferences, and uses that information to deliver the most valuable message to you at the right time. Because privacy is a core principle of AGLOCO, the Viewbar™ communicates with our secure servers in an encrypted fashion to keep your information private.
Some people have asked: “Is the Viewbar™ some kind of ‘spyware’?” The answer is simple: The Viewbar™ is the opposite of spyware. Spyware sneaks onto your computer without your knowledge or permission, it steals your private information, and it’s nearly impossible to remove. Unlike spyware, the Viewbar™ is completely permission based, it keeps your information private, and you can always turn it off with a single click."
The Viewbar™ also has many additional features:
-Search (which lets Agloco get us money from search engine companies)
-Contextual ads (which lets Agloco get us money from advertisers)
-Anti-fraud and other software utilities (which lets Agloco get us money from software companies)
Agloco states that the Viewbar is still currently in Beta testing, when the Viewbar is released (I expect end of February) it will be installable in accordance to when you signed up. Those who jumped on the wagon early will get the first whiff. Agloco suggests in the mean time we begin building a network.
I feel building your network prior to the release of the Viewbar can turn out to be an advantage but also in some ways prove to be a disadvantage. It is obvious why it is an advantage, of course you want to get a head start with the next YouTube! (Fingers crossed) But it is a disadvantage because many of those in your network may forget to install the Viewbar when it is released (in some cases 4 months after sign ups) and many will simply lose interest before the release. Another problem posed right now is people are reluctant trying Agloco out because, well, its all theory right now. All I have to say to those people is ITS FREE, you have nothing to lose, and so much to gain.
