Location, location, location. It’s a concept that many social sharing sites, like Reddit and Twitter, try to tackle but often stumble doing so. It’s often difficult to find events and developments that are happening around us as they happen. Qork tackles that problem head-on.
CEO Adam May struggled with this problem when he was a journalist, struggling to find a centralized platform for local news and events. Most social media is interest-based, Qork is location based.
Sharing stories, with either text or images, puts them on a map. The more shares the story gets, the more significant it becomes on the map. Logical simplicity.
Qork is the “town square for the digital age,” and perhaps it’ll encourage locals to get to know each other once more.
