It sounds like the next hot social media network is Pheed. “Pheed is a social media platform that enables users to create, inspire and share texts, photos, videos, audio tracks, voice-notes and live broadcasts. It is about having options and for that reason we provide monetization features where users may place a monthly pay-wall on their channel, or host a live pay-per-view broadcast event. Users select their own pricing and can earn directly.”
Pheed looks to be a combination of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube all in one social network. Two things I noticed: When I look at my account from my computer, rather than the app, I am surprised to see an option to update my Facebook status, or compose a new tweet without leaving Pheed.com. And below each Pheed post, there is an ‘I love this’ button, and an ‘I don’t love this’ button (something people have requested from Facebook in the past).
Have you created your account yet?
After you download the free app, it asks you to login with either your Facebook account, or your Twitter account, but you are allowed to sign up with your email address. Like most social networks, you:
- Upload a profile picture
- Choose a username
- Upload a background image
- Add a bio
- But you also choose your channel rating: (G, PG, PG-13, R, or X)
It sounds like Pheed has a lot to offer, but I will have to wait until I have friends join to enjoy the full Pheed experience, (and I am looking forward to it).
