Blippy is a social media "sharing" site operated from Palo Alto, California by a company of the same name, for users to post and follow each other's updates about their purchases of goods and services. It has been described as the "Twitter of personal finance", and is often compared with Twitter because it is based on that company's open sharing model. One purpose of the site is to facilitate discussion and comparison shopping among people who are connected with each other online.
Blippy was founded by Ashvin Kumar, Chris Estreich, and Philip J. Kaplan (founder of Fucked Company and AdBrite) in December, 2009, and launched on $1.6 million of financing from a number of prominent venture capital firms, including Charles River Ventures and Sequoia Capital, and angel investors Evan Williams, Jason Calacanis and James Hong.
