In a world where social interactions are being transferred from the real-life to online channels, it becomes critical to ensure that this “transfer” will be accomplished in the most effective manner. Existing social networks have been very successful in creating platforms for people to share their personal experiences (through photos, videos, check-ins, etc.).

But, social interaction is not a one-way process; in existing social networks, uploaders tell their story and friends are limited to small contributions (e.g., likes, comments, shares). In real-world situations though, stories are typically built collectively through the exchange of people’s experiences and points of view.

As such, we believe there’s a need to shift from the traditional model of online interactions (involving liking, commenting on friends’ posts) towards a model that will make people an integral part of their friends’ experiences and tell stories together rather than being limited in following-up on other people’s stories.
