SEATTLE, May 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GLEENET LLC, a Seattle-based start-up, announced that it has released an avant-garde SNS in the application market on May 27. It is the space-based and culture-mediated SNS called OMNIBUS. People joining OMNIBUS can virtually meet at cultural places and have conversation on the event held in the chosen cultural place. By fetching data from APIs, more than 80,000 cultural events going on around the world have been made available in OMNIBUS. Users can visit any place where performing arts, exhibition or sports is going on, and chat about the event with like-minded others.
"I met around a lot of people feeling fatigue from the existing SNS for its shallow conversation but frightened to be completely disconnected from the world when deactivating their accounts. OMNIBUS does exist for them," said Dr. Minha Kim, Founder and Primer of GLEENET. "If you love Billy Joel's songs, you can simply visit a place having his concert and find out what is going on there at home."
OMNIBUS offers a variety of the unprecedented features, which one could hardly find with the existing SNSs. "The featuring modules of OMNIBUS have been aimed to arouse a sense of analogue sentiment from mid-30s or over while using digitized network services. Monolog, which is a digital note, and Stamp Store selling online stamps, were all intended to make a humanistic sense contaminated throughout the world," said Minha.
While OMNIBUS is targeted to middle-aged users, Blue Carpet, a forthcoming SNS, is the first-ever interview-mediated SNS, especially targeting at youngsters. The interview application was created in the attempt to converge journalism with entertainment. Ordinary people can attempt to make the stardom to receive interview questions from users while demonstrating their talents or telling a story of their unique lives. Interviewers can purchase cyber-money called "Blueberry" and ask paid questions for star applicants who can then earn the amount paid by interviewers, once fully answered.
"The fundamental idea that made me create this app was related to some humanistic mind as well. The Internet has been acclaimed for its bottom-up mechanism believed to have in turn transformed our society to be more transparent and democratic. But was it really true? I asked to myself and realized it wasn't. Replies and comments placed at the bottom of online communication are so superficial, having no power. Society is still driven by selected few, not the majority. I wanted to run an experiment by creating Blue Carpet to see to what extent our society can progress in the direction of empowering ordinary people by means of SNS," said Minha, who made this remarkable achievement since she shifted her job to an entrepreneur from a communication professor only a year ago.
Led by this social science scholar known for her expertise in communication and social network theories, members of GLEENET devote their internal work process to designing ideas of platform applications and deriving service strategies of their products. Application development and marketing performance are mostly outsourced and virtually assisted. "I believe the networking of humans is the never-ending and indispensable value we, as members of global community, have to pursue. What truly matters in this endeavor is how we make a humanistic network of people," said Minha.
GLEENET LLC, a Seattle-based start-up, is gearing towards building of humanistic networks around the globe by developing new mode of SNSs. Corruption, slander, social inequity, famine, global warming, air pollution, conflict and war, there are many issues making human life desperate. Vibrant and healthy networking of society can be something like vitamin and tonic for monotonous and de facto inhumane life as GLEENET believes. The first venture of the Company focuses on the so called "avant-garde" SNSs of OMNIBUS and Blue Carpet.
