inLinx has announced the official launch of their social media networking app. Designed as an exclusive family and friends’ network, the self-named application is a safe and secure way to bring families together, chat with loved ones, make new connections, and promote start-ups and businesses.
inLinx is the latest innovation in the realm of social media that aims to bring the real world directly into a digitized virtual life. Users of the app can create virtual families or “Linx” and control their relationships just like they do in real life.
Founder Zabi Zamir started inLinx because he believed younger generations of social media users were hesitant about connecting with their family and close relatives due to privacy issues. Millennials were simply not comfortable with sharing the same content with their family as they were with their friends. Therefore, according to him, “family connection requests were often instantly rejected or left in the endless vortex of unanswered friend requests”.
This prompted inLinx to tackle the issue and develop a way for users to limit their content to specific audiences. Through user-friendly privacy settings, inLinx allows users to choose between families to control what each of their “Linx” can see. inLinx also uses their secure network to ensure that no one’s personal social media activities can be found on Google or any other search engine. This privacy allows users and families to be free to act like their true self on the internet.
Although inLinx’s main priority is bringing family back into the forefront of everyone’s life, the app also has other features. inLinx is available in over 50 languages and integrates chat applications that connect users locally or all over the world. This helps to foster new relationships and serve as a potential online dating service that is safe and easy to use.
The app also hosts a SEO-friendly business listing that promotes businesses and entrepreneurs by providing free exposure and marketing. Through this digital marketplace, a company’s idea, service, or product can reach the top of Google pages and essentially save businesses thousands on ads and promotion material.
inLinx’s official launch will take place on 12 October at The Round Room In The Mansion House, Dublin 2. Starting at 6PM, the night is expected to showcase the features of the app and bring together entrepreneurs, celebrity guests, and top journalists to discuss the future of social networking. It will be hosted by TV personality Síle Seoige, with speeches from award-winning social media expert, TEDx speaker, and founder of Women’s Inspire Network, Samantha Kelly.
There will be comedy performances from Rory Stories and Fabu D; and great mixes by famous Spin 1038 FM DJ Ahmed. For more information or tickets for the event, visit www.inlinx.com/events.
