LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LINE Corporation, owner and operator of the free messaging app LINE, announced today the official launch of Tale, a new app where people with similar interests can connect while discovering trending content and take part in compelling conversations.

The new service represents a paradigm shift that drives exploration of trending #hashtags versus emphasis on building followers. Traditional social media oftentimes creates social fatigue with people obsessing over the number of followers and Likes along with privacy issues. Tale uses #hashtags to not only link ideas, but also encourage dialogue between people. With Tale, trending topics are ranked in real-time. With just three #hashtags per post, users can focus on content and unleash their creativity with the addition of text and doodles. From the bizarre and hilarious to the inspirational, behind each #hashtag lies a unique, vibrant community of users sharing common interests.
"Hashtags are deeply integrated into everyday conversation; they've become a common language and cultural shorthand in the digital age used for self-expression," said Jeanie Han, CEO of LINE USA. "With people suffering from social noise deafness, LINE's new Tale app addresses this epidemic -- enabling consumers to quickly and easily browse and enjoy content that is organized in a timeline through hashtags."
Tale's simple and user-friendly interface is clean and sleek. With its innovative architecture, Tale inspires compelling dialogue that connects like-minded individuals, encouraging users to unlock their creativity.
