Free iPhone App, PicIT24, aims to make sharing simple again with its once-a-day posting limit and unique visual diary capabilities
Instagram recently claimed the rights to sell your personal information to third parties. This has resulted in a plethora of people searching for alternative photo sharing services. Can PicIT24’s slick filtered environment fill this void?
Today’s Social Networks offer an unfiltered environment where users can post and share an unlimited amount of memories and thoughts to an infinite amount of connections. This mass creates a noise, which makes it hard to connect to those members you really care about. This often leaves us sorting through system-filtered posts to help us find those that are most meaningful. It is no wonder then, that despite social app time growing 76% from last year much of the sentiment after participating in social media was “overwhelmed”, “anxious” and “wasted time” according to the 2012 Social Report by Nielson.
PicIT24 was created to simplify sharing by increasing the quality of posted memories by limiting the number of posts members can share to only one photo and/or quote within a 24-hour period. The goal of the app is to make people think before posting by having them consider one question, “If I could only share one thing today, what would that be?”
“Essentially PiciT24 helps to solve how overloaded and disenchanted users are getting with social sharing by pushing the curation of content back to the users. Rather than having users share en masse and have the system use its algorithm to select what to share to their community, PiciT24 members are now in complete control of the one thing they want their followers to see that day,” says PicIT24 Founder, Fred Sachs.
“Too much choice leads to indecision, and so, paralyzed, we expose our followers to overwhelming amounts of poorly chosen content. In turn they struggle to keep up, understand and appreciate what we have to say. We believe a lack of content selectivity is counterproductive to your audience. To address these issues PicIT24 was created,” he adds.
On top of increasing the meaningfulness of posts, PicIT24 also allows for creation of groups to make it even easier to keep in touch with selections of followers. Allowing members to stay in touch with larger networks in shorter time frames.
In addition, the profile page allows for a unique content to time association, with every day representing an item of content. Members can also easily filter through posts by tapping on a location or filtering by calendar date.
PicIT24 is available now on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch as a free download. Members can also login to the PicIT24 website to view and share memories athttp://www.picit24.com.
