Hi, I’m Anthony Rose, founder and CEO at 6Tribes I noticed that social media is increasingly spam. I had a hyphothesis that others felt the same way, so I started looking into it. And I found a wealth of online conversation around the growing dissatisfaction with existing social networks – the endless baby photos, sponsored posts, “6 amazing thing your never knew about hair loss”, talking in hashtags, the increasing amount of spam content filling your feed. We wanted to create something new, a neater uncluttered approach to social media where we eliminate the irrelevant and get straight to the good stuff. And so 6Tribes was born. Instead of following people you went to school with, what if you could connect with people you didn’t necessarily know around the interests, lifestyles or topics you care about. Or, an interest-based network. 6Tribes connects you with people who are into the same things as you. Whether you’re into craft beer, love art, travel, food, having a midlife crisis or are into dragons, 6Tribes will connect you with people who share those passions and interests. Interest-based networks aren’t a new idea, there’ve been many attempts at creating interest-based communities over the years. In some cases they exist as individual apps and web sites for a particular interest, in other cases companies have looked to create a single destination that’s an umbrella for a range of interests. There are also web-first sites like Reddit. But until now there hasn’t been a mobile-first experience that hits the mark. We launched 6Tribes in Oct 2015. We’ve grown to a team of 12, based in Southwark, London. A few months ago we added the ability for anyone to start their own tribe, and within a few weeks there were over a thousand new tribes ranging from topics like Craft Beer to lifestyle / mood tribes like Be Unordinary. We love the wonderfully creative tribes like From Where I’m Standing, where people just post pictures of, well, where they’re standing. We've just launched a completely new V2 version of the app - amazing (we think so!) new design, log in with your phone number or Facebook, edit your profile, and more. We hope to change that, this is the beginning of the next step in the journey for us. We’d really appreciate you trying out the app and letting us know your thoughts. We release new versions every two weeks, your feedback becomes the next release. Please ask me anything here or DM me at @anthonyrose

If you have any thoughts on the next features to add in the app, let us know.

BTW, we have our next update going out in about 10 days, with one-to-one chat, which is the most-requested feature right now

We're thinking about adding a feature where 6Tribes uses your Social DNA to connect you with other people who share your interests - we love the idea, but it's slightly outside the current core proposition - I'd be interested in your thoughts.

This is amazing. I have been one of the first users of the app and the evolution of the app is fantastic! The sidescrolling magic ribbon as well as the complete respect to anonymity are great features. Whats next in the pipeline or can't you say yet?

@italosmarios We're figuring out how to connect people who have similar interests, using machine learning based on the tribes you've joined and your posts. We're still trying to figure out what that icebreaker line would be that gets people to connect - all ideas welcome!
