'SELFIE' A NEW SOCIAL NETWORK
We asked users about social and messaging applications, what they liked, what they didn't like and if there is anything they like to change or add to them. We listened to user feedback and now we are introducing "SELFIE". an all new social and messaging application.

We chose Selfie as being Oxford word of the year for 2013, as the most fastly grown used word around the globe.
We took everything out there and redesigned it to make it better, faster, easier and more appealing. We wanted to make Selfie, an app you like to use not just have to.
Sharing is now made easier and quicker, all you have to do is long touch over the post, an animated quick share buttons will pop up so user can just slide to any of them to share. beside the ability to share on all places (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) at one touch.
A new feature added to likes, is a likes graph. Just with a long touch on like (heart symbol) of a post, an animated heart graph will pop up representing the amount of like for both male and female which will start filling from 0 to the amount of likes.
Selfie camera features new ideas and design: Left handed or Right Handed, Have a Large Tablet or Small phone; Selfie features a draggable camera capture button that can be placed on 9 different areas of the screen, allowing you to capture pictures with either hand and giving you easier access with larger screen sizes. Also we added a 2 sided camera capture allowing user to take a Picture from the back and Front cameras and Combines into one picture.
We added 2 new feature for location and GPS: "Guide Me" where user can either request guidance for a friend location or a location that a friend wants to meet at. Giving both the ability to track each other and see how far they are from the place and each other with a notification popping up letting you know when he is close from you or the location.
We integrating location with privacy adding a feature where user can set his profile to be visible in a certain diameter range ( 5Km, 100Km, Just the city or even the country) giving them more control on who can view their profile and who not.
One of user major issues with some major applications that had both social and messaging feature, didn't support it really good. Failing at providing easy access to toggle between messaging and social side. Selfie now solved it, All the user have to do is slide to either sides of the screen at anytime and application will toggle from social to messaging and vise verse. Allowing the user to have both Social/Messaging Features in one app and still enjoy it as they were separate. Focusing on speed and security, we are providing user with a safe environment where we guarantee a high end encryption for all the exchanged data. We also added a self destruct features to all type of exchanged data (Text, Photos, Videos). Now the user can set a number of second or minutes that after it the message will be deleted from both devices.
We currently are working in the development of both android and iOS application with 40% of the work done.
The Launch date is set for 15/11/2014.
The progress can be tracked on :
iOS: Will be published soon
Selfie is 100% my idea and design, It will be developed in UK but distributed all over the world.
Risks and challenges
To be truthful there is always risks when it comes to building a new Social Network to compete with other major ones currently out there. but we studied every part of our project to minimize any risks that might face any person developing a project like ours. we made sure that it is unique and creative to deserve a space between the majors. there is always the risk that our project doesn't get enough fans to be compete against other major social network, also there is a possibility that over a night the Social network becomes really famous and our servers fails to handle the huge amount of data that is expected. that is why we are looking to build a decentralised server around every content to provide the fastest data exchange experience for our users. we did our homework really well for building our project but we can never neglect the risk that we might face, but we are always ready for the challenges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
