A movement is powered by the propagation of beliefs and ideas within a community. The Area 51 raid was a great example of a wide-scale trending movement, as 3 million people joined the event to spread awareness. ReelTalk provides the platform for those with similar interests to congregate, bringing movements like this to life.
ReelTalk turns trends into movements. This is made possible by offering a space for like-minded users to engage in the discussion of beliefs and interests, aiming to unite users. This is something that superficial social media sites often lack, as users may feel alienated. ReelTalk acknowledges that every opinion matters, and unites validation with controversy.
Within ReelTalk, identity is established through a depiction of belief systems and personal interests, rather than photos from a Hawaiian vacation. ReelTalk strives to reveal the common thread by which we are all bound. The two founders of ReelTalk, Matt Jangaard, and Ryan Watson, started the app in 2019 with hopes of creating a platform that fosters meaningful connections.
One of ReelTalk’s unique features is the interactive map. This map has six filter icons: Coronavirus, Snow, Flood, Fire, Car Crash, and Shooting. By clicking on these icons, users can view articles related to that particular filter. For instance, by clicking on the gun icon, users will be able to access articles mentioning a possible shooting in the last 24 hours at a given location. Likewise, by clicking on the virus icon appearing in New York, users may view current Coronavirus news. Location-based direct messaging is another component of the map. Users have the ability to message others regarding current events in the area, such as, “I’m going to Coachella 2020,” or “Party at my house tonight,” and others have the ability to respond. ReelTalk’s map aids the spread of movements by uniting communities in an area.
When signing up, users are asked to choose the movements in which they wish to be part of. First, a user must choose one of four political parties: Republican, Democrat, Independent, or No Political Party. This first-ever social media platform allows those within all political parties to unite in one space to share and discuss ideas. Once a political party is chosen, a user can then begin to join movements with like-minded individuals to engage in and discuss the topics that pique their interest. Movements cater to a wide range of communities from politics, brands, sports teams, music, and beyond. The wide variety of movements creates a sense of diversity within the app.
ReelTalk stresses the importance of diversity and inclusion within social media. This platform welcomes all, with hopes that no user will feel isolated. Every individual will be able to find a community that makes them feel heard, understood, and accepted, all within one space–the ReelTalk app. Watch ReelTalk grow and revolutionize the industry, as communities grow and strengthen within the app. Join a movement.
