A recommendation-based social media service, Vowch combine elements of Facebook and Yelp to help users connect and share their interests with others. Users build a profile of their interests by “vowching” for a variety of places, artists, and hobbies, and earn points by giving recommendations for their tastes.. Once users assemble a lists of “friends,” they can “revowch” items they have shared which interest them as well. There are a dozen searchable categories including food and drink and culture, allowing users to explore outside of their local scene, discover new content and expand their interest. Users can like, comment on and share vowches, and link their account to other social media profiles on Facebook and Twitter, making the app highly social. Because of the social nature of Vowch, it’s recommended for use with children ages 12 and older, but parents should guide usage and always monitor their children’s activity.
Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.
Interaction with highly-social media platforms and apps can help children develop good self-awareness thinking skills through controlled engagement with others. In Vowch, users receive recommendations from choice friends and followers, connecting with those who share similar interests, helping to curate a feed of content in-line with their unique tastes. Each item listed on the news feed has a credibility equal to the taste of the "friend" that "vowched" for it. Not only are users able to accurately judge how applicable certain items are to them, but they can paint a picture of themselves by adding videos, images, links, and songs to each post. They can match their own interests with those of other Vowch users and potentially foster a meaningful and mutual exchange of new interests.
The "profile" feature of the app creates curated lists of all things that users "vowched" for in the past. Here, users will be presented with a snapshot of themselves, allowing them to discover patters and consistencies in what they like to listen to, wear, watch and visit.
