The user posts a link, and when another user clicks it, s/he is notified and can join a DabKick session with the other user. The interface doesn’t require the visiting user to share his or her email address, nor is information about the host’s account displayed.

Links can be turned on and off. The service works on the Web or as an iOS app. Only the link host needs to have the app installed.

Say you’re selling a bike or an amp on Craigslist. You can post a DabLink in the ad and chat with potential buyers about the item online, saving them a trip to your house and you the risk that yet another Craigslist user will stand you up.

DabKick also suggests that users could put the links in their dating profiles, but that sounds like a recipe for extreme awkwardness!

SocialTimes tried out the feature and couldn’t exactly get it to work, but we’re not ruling out user error.
