Adios, fake friend collecting
One of the major criticisms of social media networks like Twitter is the “follow me and I’ll follow you back” mentality with thousands of strangers attempting to pump up their follower count. Another criticism is people proclaim how well connected they are but they don’t really know any of their network in person.
ReallyMet is a brand new app that is available on iTunes and soon on Android that encourages users to share people you meet with your real friends. Users can check in with other people when they meet in person, emphasizing the real connections between people. There is a gaming component that encourages users to build up their social network and with each check in with a real life connection, relationship statuses change from “acquaintance” to “inner circle.” The more people you meet and “level up the relationship class” with, the more your overall social level increases.
Real life meetings can be made relevant by sending messages, posting photos, and rating the “meet.” You can check in, post a “shout out” message or comment, upload photos and discover who you and your real life friends really have in common in real life, hence ReallyMet!
