“On Facebook you connect with your friends, on Twitter you follow your interests, and on Pheed you express yourself,” said O.D. Kobo, co-founder of Pheed.
Existing social media platforms have connected world’s celebrities with their audiences without giving them much reward for it. This is about to change with a social shopping curation platform - Pheed.
Pheed allows its users (aka, Pheeders) to create a channel to which they can upload and share text, photos, videos, audio tracks, voice notes, and live broadcasts – each called a “Pheed.” At their discretion, the Pheeders can then choose to monetize their content, via either a monthly subscription or a one-time, pay-per-view style offering. The channel creator selects the price, earns directly, and owns all content – each key in the sensitive world of celebrity marketing.
Pheed borrows heavily from the best of existing social networks. Users can “@-tag” one another in posts, send private messages, use hashtags to organize topics, like and favorite content, push posts to Twitter and Facebook, and view content from a list of those they follow in a scrolling home feed. Where the platform differs slightly is in the ability to sort by content type, including text, audio, photo, video, and live broadcast. Also, in addition to a standard “like,” or in Pheed’s case “heart” feature, the new social platform also offers a “broken-heart” dislike option – this is something that Facebook users have been requesting for years, and should be thrilled to find on Pheed.
