Vibes, Tribes, and What's Next

Discover your vibe and connect with others who share your interests!

At Visva, we always strive to give you the best social network experience. This means we continually take user feedback to make improvements and add features. Our team has been very busy working on some exciting new updates, and we can’t wait to tell you all about them.

First, let’s take a little journey through the app. C’mon, vamigos!

Why Visva?

Other social media platforms are structured to reward popularity and punish, or simply ignore, anything out of their fabricated norm. This has created environments rife with over-curated (insta worthy) posts, humblebrags, advertisements, and at their worst, harassment.

We wanted to create a place that was about how you feel, not how you look, who you follow - or who follows you. We believe in treating every person’s content equally, so you won’t see any sponsored posts, and you don’t have to worry about your post drifting off into the void.

So how do you know if anyone is interested in your posts? It’s all about the Vibes, baby! In a recent blog post, Natalia, Head of UX at Visva, shared more about the idea behind Vibes and how they help you interact and connect with others.  

Vibes are a great way to express your interests and see who feels the same way, but we wanted to grow that connection into something bigger. Enter Tribes!

Tribes

We created Tribes to enable you to build communities around shared interests and specific Vibes. Interested in saving the planet? Join the Climate Crew tribe! Have a super cute pet? Join the Cute Pets tribe! You’ll find links, photos, videos, and more importantly, people who feel the same way you do.

Ready to start vibing with some tribes? It’s easy! Just tap the Tribes icon in the bottom navigation bar and search for a tribe by name. Or tap the "Suggested For You" tab to see the tribes that match with what you vibe with the most.

Once you find your community, you can build connections with others in the tribe who share your goals or passions. With Tribes, Visva is more than social viewing, it’s social doing. The first step: Say hello!

Chat

Visva Chat is the next step in building personal connections within your community. To start a conversation, just tap the user’s name, then tap the chat icon on their profile page. Chats are fully private, so only the person on the other end can see your messages.

We want to make sure you feel safe when meeting people on Visva. If you receive an unwanted message, swipe left and tap the “Unmatch” icon. The message will disappear, and that user will no longer be able to contact you.

What's Next

We’ve been chatting with our super awesome iOS development team about what’s next in the app. There are some design updates to make connecting with new people and joining tribes easier. We’ll also see a news feed more tailored to specific interests, and we’ll have new ways to find and create tribes around places, events, and topics!

Join us here next week for another installment of Vibin’ with the iOS Team to hear all about it. See you soon!

In the meantime, here’s a playlist to get you pumped for the new school year:
