What do you get when you cross social media with local restaurants, bars and cafes? SelfieYo HotSpots — a new way to check out what’s happening at your favorite places nearby, who’s there, what the vibe is like and the latest pics, videos and messages.
SelfieYo is a location-based chat app that focuses on reinventing the concept of the social graph. We have been diligently studying and exploring ways to mimic the real-life experience of meeting people nearby, having conversations and sometimes staying friends and sometimes moving on.
With HotSpots, it’s easy to see who’s at the bar or restaurant, have a chat, see if you have anything interesting to share with each other — and if you want, you can take the conversation into private mode and become BFFs for life.
Here’s some info on how HotSpots works and a few other new feature updates on SelfieYo for iPhone and Android:
- The more you share photos, videos and messages at HotSpots around you, the more venues will come into the HotSpots map. Start sharing and help build the local map!
- You only see active people in a HotSpot room when they are actually at the location. It is possible to enter and chat in a HotSpot without actually being there, but you won’t show up in the active Chatter list.
- Even if you are not physically at the HotSpot, you do need to be close in order to see it or enter it. There is no teleporting on SelfieYo. The idea is that we focus on truly local, social experiences.
- You can private message people you meet on SelfieYo by tapping their profile image — you will see the option to DM them.
- It is possible that the person you want to private message has enabled the required pay feature. In such a situation, you may be required to pay their toll in SGT.
