Share Everything Around You

Capture images, video or audio, link to an article, or write some text and post it for the people near you to see. You don’t need to be “friends” with nor “follow” anyone to see each other’s posts.

Get Boosted

When your post gets “boosted” by other users, its geographic coverage will expand so more people can see it.

The more your posts get boosted, the more cred you’ll earn, and the coverage of your future posts will be larger.
