The Problem.

WHY WE STARTED

In 2019, a team of college students were sick and tired of current social media apps as the only avenue to interact with others online. Social media platforms provide an artificial online social experience through maximum ad impressions and dopamine rushes from pressing the “like'' button. However, they neglected to optimize basic user needs: a user experience designed for natural conversations with a small group of people. 

The internet is not going away anytime soon, and neither is the human need to socialize. So the team thought: Why are we settling for platforms that are NOT designed for optimal social experiences?

Our Solution.

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING.

As the team went on a quest to design the most natural online social experience, the most glaring user pain point was that these platforms were not designed for natural conversations, especially for content creators to engage with their audience. 

Likes, emoji comments, and fluctuating follower counts provide validation, but don’t allow content creators to meaningfully engage with their audience. The relationship is one to many.

After more interviews, testing, and several late nights later, the team of college kids discovered a scalable solution: content creators can host small text-based chat conversations around the content they produce with their audience. 

 

Along the way, the team had some milestones:

  • Finalists at the BU NVC Competition 2020

  • BU Summer Accelerator Cohort 2020

  • Winners of the MIT Beantown Throwdown Competition 2021

  • Official Product Launch (after two internal beta launches): August 2021
