How social media helped create a ‘real world’ world
A social media company called Parlour Social Media has launched a new app to help people who are trying to cope with the Zika virus find social media outlets that they can trust.
Parlour has developed the app, called Parlance, which will help people in need find friends and family members to share with them.
In a news release, Parlor Social Media CEO Dan Siegel said the app will allow people to connect with their social media communities, share photos, videos and photos to share on their own, or get a group of friends to create a “virtual community”.
“Our users are not isolated from the world,” Siegel wrote.
“Parlance will help them feel more connected, connect to others, and connect with people who have the same goals as they do.”
The Parlance app will offer users the option to create an account on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest.
The app will also allow users to create and share videos and share photos on social media with the same content.
Parlance is the brainchild of Siegel, who started Parlance as an app to create personalised content to help others.
In an interview with ABC News, Siegel described how he created Parlance.
“I really like to have things in front of me that are really interesting and interesting to look at and I wanted to give people a way to do that,” Siggs said.
“When I’m thinking about the idea, I look at things and I think, well what would be interesting to do in a real-world situation?
What would be exciting to do and what would not be?”
Siegel said he had “no idea” if people would use the app to spread information and spread awareness about the Zika epidemic.
“We’re kind of in a bit of a beta phase,” he said.
But people have been using the app on Facebook to help spread the word about the virus and it is also used to spread awareness of the coronavirus pandemic, according to ABC News.
Parlor Social Media said it had more than 100,000 users on Facebook and has more than 4 million daily active users.
It has partnered with other companies including Microsoft, IBM and Amazon to help with the rollout of Parlance and the Parlance App.
The app will be available on the Apple App Store and Google Play in the coming weeks.
The release of Parlory Social Media comes after the federal government announced last week it would ban travel to the US for the next three months.
The US government said the decision would help contain the spread of the virus.
