Why? Because traditional networks are limiting, uptight, bossy, controlling, attention consumers, that sell out their users for profit.
How it works
- Open the app - it's web based so you don't have to download anything.
- Make a profile - simply a name, color, and optional bio.
- Browse, create, connect, share - the more connections you make the more things you'll be able to find and the more discoverable your things will be.
