PALO ALTO, Calif., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mighty Networks just announced the release of a new platform for social networks designed for deep interests and entirely re-imagined for mobile.
For the past decade, social platforms–such as Facebook–have connected us by our identities–the city where we were born, the college we attended, or our first job–solidifying red states and blue, conservative and liberal, and the equivalents around the world. Mighty Networks cuts across these identities by focusing on the interests that are most important to us–like our dream profession, a shared medical condition or an all-consuming hobby.
Mighty Networks employs proprietary algorithms and smart technology built from the ground up for interests. Anyone can create a Mighty Network for free. A Mighty Network is unique because:
- Members are connected by their location, by the topics they choose and the categories they define
- Content and conversations never get lost
- Everything for an interest is in one place
"Ordinary groups are a terrible way to connect people around a shared interest. They're positively broken if you want to organize collective action," says Mighty Networks Founder & CEO Gina Bianchini. "We're passionate believers in bringing cutting-edge technology to the way people want to meet around their most deeply held interests. Ten years into social networks that continue to reinforce the identities that divide us, we've built Mighty Networks for the interests that bring us together."
Examples of Mighty Networks Coming Out of Beta
Beyond Type 1–Started by Sarah Lucas, Juliet de Baubigny and Nick Jonas in June 2015 as a social media following, Beyond Type 1–a not-for-profit dedicated to people touched by Type 1 Diabetes–shifted their most passionate followers into a Mighty Network in June 2016. Fast forward to today with 16,000 members, Sarah says, "our Mighty Network runs itself." After a series of polls that uncovered nearly half of its members had been misdiagnosed as children, she collaborated with the American Academy of Pediatrics to launch an educational campaign about early symptoms that has since been adopted by 15,000 doctors' offices across seven states.
CoCommercial–Run by entrepreneur coach Tara Gentile, the bestselling author of The Art of Earning, her Mighty Network, CoCommercial, is a grad school for savvy digital entrepreneurs and small business owners. Since moving her online community to a Mighty Network, her classes boast a nearly 100 percent completion rate, up from 30 percent in only one year.
Inspire–Launched in March 2017 by David Jay and his team at Shoot & Share, a contest for professional photographers, Inspire is a Mighty Network for professional photographers that swelled to nearly 9,000 members in a few short weeks. According to David, before launching his own network, they had to spend months–if not, years–getting to the same activity they achieved at launch.
GENDR–Designed to be a safe space for gender non-conforming people, GENDR addresses the sense of isolation or dislocation of members by connecting people from around the world in a private subscription Mighty Network where 100 percent of members have contributed their stories and experiences.
"Each Mighty Network is a series of building blocks that our customers–or Creators–can tailor for their interest, goals and members. Given this freedom, it's not a huge surprise that members of our early Mighty Networks spend fives times the industry average on our mobile apps," said CTO Tim Herby.
Mighty Networks is a freemium subscription model–similar to SurveyMonkey® or Dropbox™–where anyone can create a Mighty Network for free. There's no limit to the number of members on a Mighty Network. When a Creator is ready to upgrade to a Growth Plan ($79.00 per month), they'll unlock Host Analytics and integrations with Google Analytics and Slack. With the Business Plan ($99.00 per month), Creators gain access to a member referral program with rewards as well as the option to add member subscriptions or sponsorships. There is also a Mighty Networks PRO option for the Enterprise.
