Bakfy (acquired by CommonFloor)

http://www.bakfy.me/
We make college campuses truly social Bakfy is a mobile app which connects the entire college campus like never before. It acts as local twitter for campuses where students can chit-chat about the happenings in the campus or on any other topic they wish to. Bakfy puts the entire college under one roof, without any friend requests/following someone/etc. Bakfy also connects currently disconnected colleges, by providing option to post to other college campuses. Students can also post anonymously and thus share stuff which they cant do on facebook, watsapp, etc. Typical use cases are gossip about day-to-day stuff, information sharing, college events/fests, jobs/internships, share secrets/feelings, share exam notes, etc. Launched just 10 days back across major IITs, we hit 1000 downloads in the first week itself. Won 1st prize in IIM A .net business idea competition 2014.
