A new app called Plague wants to change the way you share information.

How it works is that you share a status like you would on Twitter or Facebook but it instead of showing in a feed it “infects” those nearby who see the status before it goes further.

When it appears for those users nearby, they have the option to either infect those near them or to stop the infection.

Infection starts at the source of the information

The statuses shared can be text, links or images which have your location attached in order to infect users nearby.

It is an interesting mechanism for disseminating news or trending topics.

When there’s lots of people sharing, Plague could be a great way to crowd-source the very latest news or even just your banal everyday thoughts.
