Hello is a simply named but intelligently designed new social app and social media network, developed by Orkut Buyukkokten, that is designed to bring together people who happen to share the same hobbies and passions.

This particular social app invites users to select specific personas that reflect their interests, such as 'outdoorsman', 'musician', 'geek' or 'clubber'. You can then go about browsing the persona lists to find people with the same interests, while a complicated algorithm works to provide you with friend suggestions.

The app varies from typical social network solutions in that it doesn't focus on regular status updates but instead encourages users to utilize images and comments to participate.

This kind of social app could take off in a big way, given that people are increasingly willing to turn to social media to connect with others.
