Authentic and Real

Create group spaces just for the people you might have over for a dinner party. goHappy is optimized for sharing with smaller, intimate groups instead of performing for hundreds or thousands of strangers. Keep communication and sharing organized by topics and focused threads. Create albums of photos and videos collaboratively.

Five (more) reasons to switch from traditional social media to goHappy

  1. goHappy is designed for group communication. Create private social networks for your different groups: close and extended family, college buddies, neighbors, book club. goHappy is optimized for sharing with smaller, intimate groups. goHappy is an oasis for people weary of traditional social media’s toxic drama and unhealthy habits because it's designed for calm and healthy life-sharing.
  2. goHappy is for "backstage" life - behind the curtain of traditional social media. Front stage social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter often serve as platforms where people perform their social lives (or a selective version of it). Feeds can be superficial, and often mingle personal (and political) details with advertising algorithms. goHappy is the exact opposite because it's a place for just your closest family and friends to share life, communicate and collaborate. goHappy is where you can safely be yourself brand-free.
  3. goHappy is an oasis for people weary of traditional social media’s toxic drama and unhealthy habits. Unlike certain well-known, addictive social media platforms optimized for advertising (cough, cough), goHappy does not utilize machine learning or algorithms to present content to group members. And we don't utilize “Likes” or leverage game mechanics to boost engagement. goHappy radically reduces incoherent group message threads and the disruptive notifications that inevitably follow. We believe group members simply need to know others have seen their messages and shares and can respond (or not) in kind.
  4. goHappy does not sell advertising or personal data to make money. We’re able to provide our platform to everyone in your group free of charge for now. Subscription packages will be available for group founders for just a few dollars per month in 2019.
  5. With goHappy, everyone in your group can share life as it happens in a calm and organized way on any device in real-time. Think about the photos and videos you want to share with your group. Maybe these are things you wouldn’t post for the world to see on Facebook or Instagram.
