The Vibe “Around There”

Discover the social media vibe at any location in the world.




Simple & Authentic – like Twitter was at first.  With a twist – location and relative anonymity.” Sarah Chambers, July 11, 2012

New kind of messaging – Love this.  Great tool for a whole new kind of location-based connecting.  Have used it to discover people and info directly relevant to my locale.  Planning a big treasure hunt using it!” hattery0501, Jun 28, 2012

Should be more popular, great app  – This is one of the most interesting concept for communication App, works great and is fun.  This isn’t more popular probably because no one has heard of it.  Developer needs to advertise the product.”  Hastings101, June 6, 2012

Beautiful – I love this. It’s an insanely new approach to social networking.” Ztr7, May 29, 2012

Thank you! – I’m so glad someone finally made something like this!  It’s a different kind of social networking, filling a role that Facebook and similar “networks” don’t.  I love that there is no cache of personal information for apps and advertisers to mine, or for burglars to know their next target while you’re publicly announcing your vacation, no constant Facebook changes without you being notified so suddenly your privacy settings are pointless, no getting your account hacked and having all your private info made vulnerable, no trying to figure out the privacy settings in the first place… If your data isn’t there to begin with, it can’t be abused!… Jan Marie Garrett, May 28, 2012

Vibe for business

Vibe makes it easy to create a private communication channel for a group of people anywhere around the world.  One that coworkers (and clients) can use to share status updates, news, images, without using email or SMS.

All you have to do is come up with a combination of letters and numbers that’ll be the ## password to your channel, then post your messages using that ## password in the message body.

To see an example, search for ##demo24″ on Vibe.  You can reply to the messages there or add a new one using the same ##.  They all become part of the same channel.

After checking out the ##demo24 channel, start your own new channel using your own ## password, then share it with your coworkers as a way to communicate with each other on the go or in distributed locations.  You still get all of Vibe’s geo-located message features but with the added privacy of your own ## channel
