In the virtual world, it is common to make connections based on attractive photographs that lead to burgeoning virtual circles but diminishing face-to-face relationships Knitt LLC decided to change this scenario by fostering real-time connections between like-minded people in a city with their latest social media app that is aptly titled as Knitt.
“We created Knitt to bring back meaningful social connections that enrich an individual’s life,” says Alazar Berhane, CEO, Knitt LLC. “With Knitt, it simply takes five minutes of your time to share your interests and location and find people in your vicinity with similar interests. You don’t have to send any friend requests or swipe profiles. Instead, you instantly become a part of various communities with like-minded people who you can share messages, photos, and videos with.”
Knitt asks its users to share their hobbies and interests and automatically connects them to a community of people who share those interests. By creating local communities based on hobbies and interests, users can find lasting friendships and have online conversations that add value to their lives, says Mr. Berhane.
The creators of Knitt enable photo and video sharing, as well as free messaging, in a highly secure environment. Users can access the following features in Knitt app:
My Profile: Create a short profile sharing your hobbies, interests, and geographic location to be a part of relevant communities in your area.
Messages: Connect with the people “you like in relevant communities” with “in your community through private messages in a secure chat window”. You can also share photos and videos with contacts privately, as well as via group posts.
Connections: This feature allows you to view all your contacts. Here, you will also find a ‘Share App’ button that can be used to share the app with your friends and family to quickly grow your community.
Posts: Use this feature to upload pictures and videos and share meaningful content with your communities. You can view others’ content and also rate their posts for more interaction.
Notifications: Stay ahead of the happenings in your communities with regular notifications regarding new messages, comments, and posts.
Blocking: Knitt gives you full control over your profile to ensure your safety and prevent any online bullying by allowing you to remove unwanted connections in just a tap.
“We are sure that Knitt is going to revolutionize social media as we know it. As loneliness becomes a common social disorder, a social media platform like Knitt will foster community and bring individuals together in real-life to promote healthy and meaningful living,” adds Mr. Berhane.
