MIAMI, April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Versy, an interest-based social networking platform, launches today in the United States, Brazil and Mexico. This social site and application allows users to explore their passions and spark conversations with like-minded individuals.
Unlike other social platforms, Versy connects people based on shared interests rather than acquaintanceship. It offers users the unique opportunity to create and discover their favorite things, and share that content with friends and those who are as interested in similar subjects, all in one place.
"We have created a place that allows people to explore, share and discuss topics that matter to them with others who share their same interests," said Neil Hamilton, vice president of business development for Versy. "Versy unifies passions to create an online community of like-minded people. We've also partnered with carefully chosen content providers who, we feel, have a unique voice and compelling content that appeals to our users."
Versy has tapped Complex, a media platform and online community that publishes a diverse set of the most relevant voices in culture, as its principal partner and will deliver exclusive content focused on generating conversations across multiple passion points.
"Complex was founded on the idea that our passions––be it music, sneakers, art, style, food, or pop culture––unite us more than demographics or data points ever could. The folks at Versy are channeling that ethos and given their unique platform, will allow us to tap into those subcultures and audiences on a deeper level through our best in class content," said Complex CEO Rich Antoniello.
Additional partners include Matador Network, Food Network, Allrecipes, Shape, FOX Deportes, Fusion and Refinery29; all of which are delivering a brand new and conversational content experience within the platform.
Based on each user's interests, Versy builds the perfect stream of posts, videos and threads about topics that are important to them, making it easy for users to filter through the clutter and only discover stories that they actually want to see. Users can then share and discuss their favorite content using Versy's unique group chat feature, creating their own interest-based communities or joining a chat in an existing community.
Versy Key Features:
- Versy allows each user to create their own custom stream of image, video, and audio content based on anything that interests them.
- Users on Versy can tag their images, videos and audio posts with up to three interest categories, making it easy for users to search for like-minded people who are equally as passionate about similar subjects.
- Updates are automatically sent to users when conversations associated with their interests are created and updated.
- Content found in Versy can be publicly discussed within the app, in private chats with friends, and shared to other social networks.
- Public group chats can have an unlimited number of participants.
Versy is currently available on Android and iOS, or by signing in through a web browser. Versy will also be available for download in Brazil and Mexico. For more information, please visit versy.com.
