Google is developing its new Shoelace social media platform, which will aim at making friends as opposed to connecting with existing ones. The network will also facilitate face-to-face interactions. The service works by matching a user with others who share interests or hobbies. Users are able to create a listing for activities or events and are then able to invite others, either strangers or friends, to partake.
Currently, the Shoelace social media platform only allows for invite-only inclusions. The network is undergoing an initial launch in New York City, as well as a few other locations. The launch will bring Shoelace to iOS and Android app stores.
