About this project

Imagine if there was a social media platform where you can talk on multi-video conferences through the messenger, interact with like minded people, share ideas that can help someone else move to the next stage in their business or career and vise versa, and you can link up with people to start something big. Imagine a social media platform without drama. This is where LinkUp comes in. 

As I tell you about this vision of mine, I'm looking for web developers that can make this vision a reality. Think of you accessing this app on your phone when you come across your greatest idea yet, and can find people who specializes in areas you're weak in to make that project a success. What would happen if you can put together a mastermind team in less than an hour? It's no secret that most of the successful started out with a mastermind team. We are in the age of the entrepreneurs, and with so much talent out there, including yours, it can be hard to find the RIGHT people. 

 What is LinkUp?

 

LinkUp is here to help you speed up that process of finding the RIGHT people. Here, nobody charges anybody for services. We help each other by exchanging information. LinkUp will be a mix between Facebook without the negativity and drama, LinkedIn with more interaction, Meetup with income generating capabilities, and Google Hangouts within the website's messenger. This means even if people don't live in your state or country, you can still create a team within LinkUp and communicate with people miles or even countries away without having to operate 4 different apps at the same time. This will be an All-In-One social media platform. 

 What's Our Mission?

 

The whole point to LinkUp is to help people connect with other like minded and positive people to create, develop, and improve each other's lives, businesses, or careers. Imagine scrolling down your newsfeed to see nothing but people working together, crushing it, and changing the lives of millions of people. Would that be a website worth having an account with? The best part is, LinkUp is free for FULL MEMBERSHIP. This website/app is designed to help everybody involved WIN. 

 Features

 

- Messenger with Conference Video Calls and Audio Calls (Up to 10 people)

- The "Dislike" Button (You'll be able to share, and "Like" or "Dislike" status posts to further help people by giving constructive criticism on projects you see on the newsfeed.)

- Team Photo Album (Whenever members of your team are tagged in photos you may have taken together, the photo will be automatically saved in this album)

- Network Newsfeed (You don't have to be "friends" with everybody to see status updates of team projects on your newsfeed. This helps speed up the process of finding the RIGHT people for any mastermind team you want to create)

- Inner Circle Feature (This will serve as a "quick access" to people you are exclusive with.)

- "At A Glance" Profile Setup (When people visit your profile, your profile picture, name, cover photo, and "Area of Speciality", will be visible. They won't be able to see the entire profile until you accept the LinkUp request they sent you. A push notification will be sent to your phone/tablet letting you know about the request.) 

- Team Meet Up Calendar (Helps keep track of all of your meet ups with your team, rather it be physical or virtual. Reminders will be sent to your phone/tablets once you and the team agree to a date and time.)

- Fortune 500 Access (Corporate executives will also be a part of LinkUp. Which will give you opportunities to work along side with CEOs of major companies.)

Many more features to come as we develop. 

Risks and challenges

The major challenge in building LinkUp is ensuring the Video Conference feature for the messenger will work. I have no doubt that it will, but this may be the toughest aspect of the website. With your backing, I'll be able to hire the best programmers for the job to make sure that you receive the very best experience with this app.

There is no such thing as a "final product" with LinkUp, because we'll be constantly improving the website and the capabilities of these features. We want you to be able to hold video conferences without having to go all the way to Google Hangouts to do it. You'll be able to speak to your team anytime through your LinkUp app.
