  • Pros: 

    A better app as compared to fb & twitter were we can share our thoughts without knowing the numbers of likes, comments and other elements.


    Slow but we can wait for improvement

    Waiting for the new version were current bugs are resolved

Thanks @amrith for hunting the app. Hi, I'm Deepak, one of the makers of Pden app. It is a simple decentralized microblogging app to encourage people into mindful sharing of thoughts and conscious conversations around them. We've ditched the shares, likes, and all the other counts to focus more on the content and less on the metrics around it. It is powered by Blockstack using Blockstack auth and Gaia storage system. Please let us know your thoughts on the product.

I think it’s pretty great that there’s a new app that actually encourages discussion and posts in a time where social media is starting to get oversaturated with irrelevant and sponsored posts, and a lot of fake activity to get more followers and likes. A lot of people are also facing anxiety due to the pressure that comes with likes and comments and sometimes don’t voice their real opinions. It’s great to give everyone a platform and the freedom to share their thoughts! Awesome app Pden!

@ornellaperl Exactly our thoughts behind creating this app. Social media has become a competition to capture attention than a tool to connect with each other. Pden is an attempt to think beyond like/share/retweet counts and go back to the times when social networking was indeed about connecting over ideas.
