If you're beginning to tire of Facebook and other large social networks, '6Tribes' is a new lifestyle app that is designed to connect users based solely on their interests and hobbies. Rather than accessing a single online community, the app is intended to foster a compartmentalized social network of interest-based groups called 'tribes.'
To use the app, you simply sign on with your Facebook account and 6Tribes will automatically analyze your likes and interests. Based on the data it collects, the app will then suggest various tribes that may appeal to you. Users can choose from over 100 different tribes and immediately begin chatting with like-minded individuals.
Within each group, users can share and post content that relates to their shared interests. The idea behind the lifestyle app is to foster small online communities where users can share their passion for a specific topic, without having to filter through irrelevant content.
