TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To realize its vision of creating a positive social media platform, social media network, Paloozoo, launched an innovative approach to combat the types of negative social media content and commentary which can dominate other social media sites. Through its filtering options, members of the community can choose to omit words, types of content, or individuals from even appearing on their Paloozoo feeds, only leaving the types of content they want to interact with based on their own individual preferences. These features enable Paloozoo members to eliminate posts which are negative or bullying in nature.
"Today's social media landscape is dominated by trolling, fake news, divisive political commentary and being forced to scroll through reams of meaningless corporate content delivered by algorithms, and we think there's a better way," said Paloozoo Co-Founder, Mark Reinisch.
Added Co-Founder Rick Link, "Our community told us that having a positive social media experience is very important to them, and they weren't getting that on other social media sites, so we designed our platform to give control back to the user, allowing them to see what they want to see, and filter out what they don't."
To highlight the social importance of a positive social media space, Paloozoo unveiled a new video showcasing the damaging and divisive language used on other popular social media channels. To view the video, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2S4Q0Kxchc.
The "Positively Different" network was designed to empower members to create a positive experience, on their own terms. Members are able to see the content they want to see in real time, without the interference of an algorithm, and filter content to better customize their experience. The Paloozoo Proclamation outlines the company's commitment to creating a more positive social experience for its community. To view the proclamation, visit http://www.paloozoo.com/Home/About.
To further give Paloozoo users the chance to make a positive impact, those who are active on the site will also have the opportunity to earn money for charity through a unique gamification element called 'Paloozoo Points'. With each action on Paloozoo, members earn points; at the end of each month, those selected from a random drawing can earmark donations made by Paloozoo to one of the following charities: Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, Doctors Without Borders, Feeding America, Operation Homefront, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Stomp Out Bullying, and The Humane Society.
On Paloozoo, you can engage with Social posts, Reviews, Classifieds and Lists from your trusted network of friends and family, or the entire Paloozoo community. Paloozoo can be accessed on both desktop and mobile internet browsers. Plans are also in the works to develop an app for easier engagement across its network.
