Event communities depend on…
… volunteers, hosts, curators, connectors, local guides. Plug.events is a social network designed from the ground up to help the unsung community heroes who dedicate themselves to bringing us together.
Disconnect to reconnect
Mainstream social media doesn’t serve real-world communities, it distorts reality, amplifying content that leads us into increasingly narrow digital bubbles, often commercially driven, and away from human connection. Organisers, artists, and teachers should not have to pay social media companies, either in money or time, to reach their audience. Your community should be easily accessible to everyone interested, or potentially interested, in your passion, without inviting disruptive behaviour, like spam and scams.
The power of social media is built upon behavioral addiction and ‘fear of missing out’ (FOMO). That means they manipulate us into negative habits that are reinforced by the fact that if we leave we feel socially disconnected. Now, together, we can overcome the FOMO, and break the mould using a new, fair and safe approach.
Promote authenticity & realiability.
Using Plug.events, gone are the days of needing to follow several social media apps, and groups, to stay up to date with what is happening and who is active in your community. You can bring it all together so everyone knows what’s happening, including old friends, and those you have yet to meet.
Plug.events is supported by an endorsement system, where people, events, and orgs build their reputation over time through their connections with others. As a community, you decide what kinds of content to support and therefore amplify, so that search results and suggestions are simply recommendations from the real people that you trust.
Safer spaces for civilised conversations.
Create or participate in civilized discussion on any topic, without the noise and trolls and censorship of advertising funded social media. Each space is a community that cultivates its own values, norms and ethical standards. Our open and transparent algorithm builds bridges between communities for more fruitful discourse across and within cultural boundaries.
