Social media users want to be understood and connect with the people they’re close to, but they worry about what they post online. The existing methods that compensate for a lack of visual and sensory details that in-person conversations aren’t enough. People need a better option to help them say what they want to effectively and considerately.
We want to create an additional tool that integrates with the existing process of posting on social media.
No censorship, no judgement; this tool will just give people the extra help they want or need to feel confident and secure in what they’re posting.
