Most social networks are designed to connect you with the people you already know, but what about the people you could know?
Heard shows you what's going on around you, wherever you are. Everyone you interact with is nearby - a possible real-life connection. From reconnecting with old friends, to meeting new people that share your passions or discovering a new area, Heard is about people, not followers.
You can see who else is the in the area, and your friends list shows you which of your friends are nearby - no more missed connections. Create new friendships and find people in your area that share your passions.
Messages on Heard only last a few days before they disappear. It keeps things simple, relevant and focused. Talk, make plans and meet up, just like real life. Not everything you do needs to stay online forever.
Privacy and safety are at the heart of everything we do. Only people on your friends list can send you a private message, so you control exactly who can contact you.
We will have two revenue streams, one of which is also one of our biggest USPs
Differential privacy in advertising; keeping your private data private
We will show ads based on messages in the public timeline, not your private data. So for example, someone posts asking for a recommendation on which local restaurants are the best, and which are doing deliveries. We'll use that information to show ads targeted around restaurants and delivery services in the area. User privacy is protected, and their data is never sold or shared with third party advertisers, and never will be.
Moments are free to set up, and will sit in the main timeline, but companies will pay for an Enhanced Moment. An Enhanced Moment will give you all the benefits of your own app such as branding, real-time monitoring, push notifications and more - at the fraction of the cost. We plan for set up will typically take less than a day, not weeks or even months like creating your own app often can.
