PicChain Social App
PicChain is a unique image-based social app that uses serial one-to-one interactions to enable collaborative visual storytelling.
Social isn’t social.
The most meaningful social interactions happen one-to-one, and result in a shared experience.
But the majority of existing social platforms are based on indiscriminate broadcast of content that is engaged with in only the most superficial way, if at all.
Most social outreach isn’t interesting or even desired by the majority of the recipients, and many social interactions degenerate quickly into negative experiences.
PicChain is the solution.
PicChain provides a constructive, serial, one-to-one social experience unlike any other.
It connects people in an authentic way and challenges and empowers them to create collaborative visual stories.
It's a new way to connect, create, capture and share experiences and memories.
Familiar, But Different
While using PicChain will feel familiar to anyone who loves Instagram, SnapChat and other image-sharing platforms, PicChain offers a brand new social experience.
It’s about connecting, not broadcasting. Uniting, instead of dividing. Collaborating and creating, rather than tearing down.
How It Works
With PicChain, you take a picture, then add a caption, a Chain theme, and a few other parameters. Then you send the Chain to a friend who you know will be interested. They add a picture and caption and send it to another friend, and so on.
Once the Chain is complete, you can share it within the app, on other social sites, or wherever else you want to.
PicChain is a challenge, a mission, a game, a statement, and a chance to connect with friends of friends of friends who have taken the time to add their thoughts and images to the conversation you began.
Risks and challenges
The only challenge will be finding the right development partner(s) to work with to create PicChain. However, I have lots of connections to talented developers and networking groups, so this will be a minimal concern once I have money to fund the build.
Once my development partner(s) have been hired, the scale and scope of the project may push launch of the app and delivery of in-app Rewards. However, the goal is to launch with the Minimum Viable Product, so the four-month post-Kickstarter launch estimate should be reasonable.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
