Communication platform / application
The authors have developed a chat application designed primarily for European teenagers. Over two years, the app has collected over 100,000 users and has sent over 35,000,000 text and image messages. Chatting is done in the same way as it was in the late 1990s in the form of a list of chat rooms where users enter and develop conversations freely on many topics. Application differs from other social networks by directing all interactivity between users to writing messages. Users do not collect “likes,” followers, or other metrics for their own profile to popularize their account. Unlike most social networks, the app allows all users to communicate freely and meet whomever they want. The authors plan to expand to other countries as the application seems to be very popular and fills a current gap in the market.
