With the way the Internet is set up, visual social media outlets do very well. There are many social media platforms led by a few social media giants. While all of these platforms serve a specific purpose in specific sectors, Ideapod is filling a different need.
The Internet is so vast that finding good ideas and generating good conversation can be extremely easy one day and incredibly daunting the next. Ideapod’s whole mission is to allow users to spark debate and speak about topics that interest them.
The site is a true visual social media outlet and is set up much like Pinterest in that pictures and videos are pinned to boards and people then start the conversation from there. Each post is tagged and allows for 1,000 characters worth of writing to express an opinion.
