Missing out on something because all of your friends are busy…
Or frankly just not into what you’re into.
I know how you feel, because it happened to me. A lot.
CNN had just relocated me to Washington, DC and despite being an outgoing and friendly person, it was tough to find folks who shared my interests and whose free time coincided with mine.
It made me wonder, with all this social-media technology at our fingertips, why are our social lives not actually getting better? (you know, the social lives that exist out there beyond this screen you’re staring at).
Think about it:
We use our smartphones to find hookups and dates... furniture and restaurants recommendations... deposit a check into our bank account or get a ride to the airport— but not some like-minded person to play a game of tennis with? or go for a run at the park?
And then it hit me— there’s not an app for that.
And it’s ridiculous!
An app that makes it easy to find someone to do something, anything you want with.
So a year and change later, here I am— and here is Activvely.
