When we started building HalloApp we asked ourselves: “Do we want people to create their social networks all over again, after having done so several times on various apps? Or should we just use their phone contacts to automatically connect them with their friends and family.”
We believe your phone contacts ideally represent the social network that you have been curating over the years. Rather than beginning from scratch, we think that the easiest, most seamless way to start using HalloApp is through your phone contacts. You don’t have to send friend requests and wait for them to be accepted. Simply invite friends & family to HalloApp and you will be connected once they sign up.
We plan to build features that will allow people to fine-tune their HalloApp friends list as more of their contacts join HalloApp.
Here are a few ways you can do so today:
- Under settings, go to “privacy” and limit who can see your posts.
- For all of your posts, we tell you who it’s been sent to and who has viewed it. We also make it easy for you to hide future posts from anyone you choose.
- We offer “Groups” that allow you to share posts with a more targeted audience such as your family group or your close friends group.
