There’s an endless forest of pictures, status updates, click bait, articles and so much more taking up time and real estate on popular social media networks. What used to be a way to connect to friends and expand your social circle has become a circus of marketing ploys, sensational headlines and, in general, just a lot of noise.
Many sites such as Mashable, Stumbleupon, Reddit, Tumblr and Imgur are curating content to provide users with the “best” of the internet. Constantly updating, there’s a deluge of funny or cute pictures, witticisms and quite a bit of nonsense.
And as much as we love these sites, they don’t give you the freedom to discover the internet on your terms. Gathyr wants to give you the best of social that you want to see, no ads, no mumbo jumbo, just the very best.
With Gathyr, all you need to do is write in a few words. Tell us what you’re interested in, and we’ll tell you all about it. Spring Fashion? Lollapalooza? Preseason Football? If it’s somewhere on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram we’ll find it for you and give it to you in one streamlined feed.
Whether or not you’re attending a fashion show, festival or game you can be a part of it. You’re not just an observer, you are a participant, and you can connect with your interests and those talking about them. We want you to get excited about social media all over again and engage in a new and profound way.
Don’t fret if you can’t keep all of your social media sites up at all times. You won’t miss out on what’s important to you with Gathyr. Just check in anytime you’re free and catch up on what people are saying and what pictures they’re sharing. There’s no rigid schedule here; Gathyr works for you on your time.
When we first started this idea, we wanted to bring people together under the umbrella of shared interests, we wanted to help them stay informed and connect and we wanted to give them the tools to do so. We’re so excited to be releasing our app this May, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us directly. We respond to everyone individually, so if you have any thoughts or pun related jokes you’d like to share, don’t hesitate.
