A new platform is redesigning the realm of mobile-enabled social connectivity by expanding and enhancing the world of instantaneous sharing experiences.
With the Socialeyes app, users can now share their real-time moods, plans, pictures, and specifically their location with his or her contacts. The location and activity-based app seeks to bring users together through their present and future plans, adding a new dimension to their social networking experiences.
“There is a certain spontaneity to life that no social media application can capture, and that is the gap that Socialeyes looks to close,” founder and CEO of Socialeyes John Kagit explains. “If you want to plan a trip, or go play basketball you can create an activity invitation easily on the app by expressing your mood. The app then notifies your friends within a specific radius allowing them to take the opportunity to join you,” he says.
With this style of connectivity in mind, Socialeyes connects users in fun and spontaneous ways by offering a number of options. Users can choose to be notified when a friend is nearby, if they are feeling in a good or bad mood, and if they are up for a coffee or to party. With the location-driven experience of the platform, users will never again be left alone on the corner outside their office — possibly after a work meeting — wondering what to do with the rest of the day, because their friend nearby is feeling like an afternoon in the park. And the app has told them so.
As mobile phone usage to access social networking services continues to grow exponentially, more users are seeking out newer and better ways of connecting with their friends to share their experiences. According to research publish by GlobalWebIndex in January this year, mobile handsets have become the most popular way of accessing social networks with 66% of users turning to their smaller and more portable devices first to connect. The figures, which have grown steadily, have surpassed the use of PCs and tablets which drew 64% of user attention for their everyday online social connectivity.
“Unlike traditional social media that looks at where you have been, the things you have eaten and general past experiences, Socialeyes focuses on connectivity in the present and the future moments, allowing users to be natural and to make spontaneous plans,” says Kagit. “The platform gives you that real-time sense of knowing how your friends are doing and where they are, and if they are up for having a drink right now or if they are looking to go for a run with someone,” he adds.
“We take privacy very seriously. That is why we made it possible for the user to turn his/her location services off within the app whenever the user is not in the mood to join a social activity or when privacy is a concern.”
Founded in January 2014 by University of San Diego graduate John Kagit, Socialeyes is a fun and easy way for you to socialize with your friends and the people around you. Keep in touch with your friends and feel the local vibe wherever you are. See who is around. Share your mood with others so that you can get together over coffee, sports activity, dinner, etc.
Now more than ever, social media users are not only looking for practicality but also a rich visual and user friendly interaction with their connections. The Socialeyes app, which allows users to sync their existing social circles, looks break down the parameters set by older platforms and maximize the user experience by providing the current information on events that they are looking for.
