Banter Launches New Social Network to Connect People by Location and Interests
Banter Chat Inc. wanted to launch an anonymous social network that could connect people by location and interests and although no one took this idea seriously, it seems that it as turned into something real. The company was founded by a well-known entrepreneur, Andrew Busey, who is a Partner at Chaotic Moon, a mobile strategy and development firm for consumer brands, that’s worked with companies like Pizza Hut, Disney, Samsung, Marvel, National Geographic and many more. All these names gathered in one list sound indeed very impressive, but what about its new Banter Social Network? Does it have the same potential?
Specific Topics; Compatibility with iOS and Android
Banter is supposed to offer us a real-time conversation based on specific topics regarding food, health issues, gaming, support groups, and more. All these topics are divided into public chat rooms, but if you have a hard time finding your place there, something might help you.
The special Banter Chat Near Me feature takes your GPS coordinates and suggest possible chat rooms based on businesses or events near you, not to mention that besides these public chat rooms, Banter also promises us private rooms in the near future. As for that guaranteed anonymity, Banter promises to delete all public messages after 24 hours.
And don’t forget that this new Banter Social Network is compatible with iOS and Android, so you can join the existing rooms and try something new.
Andrew’s Busey Motivation
If you are curios what is the motivation behind Andrew’s Busey decision to launch such an anonymous social network, he is the one that offers us the explanation that we need. He simply considered that that several of today’s mobile chat clients don’t encourage us to have ‘real conversations’ about what we like and what interests us the most. People have lots of different interests and not all those interests are shared by their real-life or online friends, so why not taking an action regarding that?
