Collective Detective is happy to announce the first public release of Collectivus, a new social location experience where you can literally take it or leave it. While many social location sites focus on having people "check in" at a location, on Collectivus, people help tell the story of Thingies and check them in at stops along their journey.

Collectivus is about the unseen connections between people as they help Thingies get from place-to-place. It's part game, part social discovery, part exploration and we hope very entertaining.

The adventure of Collectivus is what you make of it.

What's a Thingie?

Oh yeah, Collectivus Thingies™ are items that travel around, encountering new people and new places. We've launched with Collectivus Rubber Duckie Thingies™ as our first series, many of them are on their way to a first encounter with someone, somewhere right now.

How does it Work?

It's easy! Each Thingie has a unique code on the bottom of it. When you encounter a Thingie, simply enter the code on Collectivus site, tell us where you encountered the Thingie and a little about your encounter. That's it.

You can also see who else is encountering Thingies and search to see if there are any Thingies near you.

But Wait, There's More!

In follow-up posts we'll talk more about the back story of Collectivus and talk more about some of the current and upcoming features. We're just getting started, so please check back for more features, announcements, and news.

You know you have many choices when it comes to fun social location activities. We appreciate you checking us out. If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions, please drop us a line.
