Social websites have become a part of our lives. We see them being used everyday,
whether it be ourselves or those around us. We use them to connect, to learn, to stay informed,
to express ourselves, to meet people. For better or for worse, we spend a significant portion
of our lives through the social media lenses. While parts of it may be good, it can become
over-consuming and tiring. What if there was something better?
WeVolly was developed with this in mind. What if we could develop a social website that
actually made people more social in person. Not only that, what if we could be more social in
person for the betterment of mankind. Everyone has the potential to contribute to their
community. WeVolly wants to take that potential and make it become kinetic, make it become
an action. WeVolly encourages its users to join and take photos and videos of themselves
doing something good for their community and posting these to WeVolly. Other users will
see this, and be inspired to do the same. It creates a domino effect that has one result: a
WeVolly users can use this social website to connect with others in their community and
create volunteer events, which we call Vollies, to contribute and help people in the real
world with real issues.
Social media doesn't have to be bad, it can achieve its original purpose: To connect humanity
for the prosperity of humanity. We just have to change the paradigm, and with WeVolly, we
believe we did.
