Nearly Social allows you to see messages which were posted around you. In the precise place where you happen to find yourself in.
Nearly Social is a new way of doing social networking which places proximity at the center.
Most social networks show you posts of people at the other end of the planet. Nearly Social shows you what is around you, which is also what can actually have impact on your real life.
Every post on Nearly Social is pinned to the precise geolocation of its creation. It can only be seen in that place and within a few hundred meters around.
Existing social networks take your network of friends and expose it to public scrutiny and judgement, putting in it to peril. Nearly Social goes the other way around: it allows you to create new or reenforce your existing relations, be it business, personal or casual — just saying hi to somebody around.
It's like having a small village, or a piazza. Within that small community, you can see everything people choose to post.
You can interact with a post in the usual ways, you can like or comment. You can post yourself. You can add friends and people can send friends direct messages.
You take your liked posts with you, wherever you go.
What will you post? That is entirely up to you. Feel free to post any content, within the limits of the law. In particular, you may not post depictions of private interiors without the proprietors' consent. You may not post nudity, you may not use this app in order to menace, haress individuals or any other types of aggression. And, do supervise your children.
For local businesses, such as restaurants or cafes, Nearly Social is a great way to make yourself known right within your place of activity, targetting precisely people that find themselves around you, either because they actually live there or because they happen to pass by. Touring companies, event organizers: with Nearly Social, you have a generic app where you can locally broadcast to all your guests or event attendees. It's that great.
Use this app to create links, do business and build social tissue. And, maybe, why not, finally find the courage to say hi to that girl.
