Q: What is TRXBE?
A: TRXBE is a social media app that connects people based on shared interests. Users on TRXBE will create and maintain lists of their favorite titles in categories such as their favorite movies and their favorite albums. Once a user populates one or more lists TRXBE functions like a social search engine.
Show me people; Age (25-35), Gender (male), Location (<10 miles from 30303), that likes Movies (Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Best In Show) AND Bands (The Clash, Elvis Costello, Beastie Boys).
Q: How is Trxbe different from other social media platforms?
A: TRXBE has a number of features that are social-media game changers. One thing users will notice is TRXBE does not provide functionality to search for specific people that you already know. With TRXBE you will only have the ability to find and connect with people if they share your interests and they meet your demographic search criteria. This is why we say, “Facebook is for the people you know. TRXBE is for the people you need to know”.
Another profound difference between TRXBE and other social apps is we will not host business profiles or third-party ads. When social media tied its wagon to digital advertising it changed its focus from connecting people to connecting people with businesses who wanted to sell them things. We have created a business model that provides a less invasive and overtly commercial user experience.
Q: Who is TRXBE for?
A: TRXBE is for good-intentioned people who are interested in making meaningful connections. Have you ever moved, attended a new school, visited a new city, or simply felt like you wanted to expand your circle? No matter who you are or where you go, TRXBE will help you find your TRXBE.
Unfortunately, when I talk about who TRXBE is for, it is necessary to make a distinction and detail who TRXBE is not for. TRXBE is an anti-racist organization. Our terms-of-use will detail a comprehensive policy against racism and racist behavior. Our goal, above all others, is to make TRXBE a welcoming place for a diverse and inclusive global community.
If you believe that the ideological, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and cultural differences between us are what makes our world a beautiful and endlessly interesting place then TRXBE is for you. If you are closed minded, bigoted, and filled with irrational hate we kindly ask that you take your shit elsewhere.
Q: Why now?
A: Over the past few years more and more people have been voicing their distaste for social media. Over time more people I knew started deleting accounts that they had maintained and monitored for many years. I sensed we were at a tipping-point as it relates to people's relationship with social media.
Issues related to privacy, political divisiveness, ad tracking, heavy handed marketing, fake news, racism, and hate speech were clearly having a negative impact on people’s perception of platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Having been frustrated by these same issues I realized that people’s dissatisfaction with the existing options was in fact an opportunity to create something new.
