Working at
LifeBonder

Current social media does not connect us in any meaningful ways. The more connected we get online, the more lonely and isolated we become. Millennials is the first generation to have grown up with social media, and we now know that social media addiction leads to lower quality of life. The problem is that social media is primarily built around the needs of advertisers and not that of users. The business model of current social media growth engines is designed around addiction as a profit-maximizing mechanism. The LifeBonder mission is to create a social media platform that lives up to the promise of what social media can be: A tool to facilitate human connections rather than replacing them. We want to make the world a better place by filling a growing need - connecting people in friendships that are human, profound and meaningful. By leveraging AI and ML, we will intelligently match people on profile parameters listed by the user. In a commitment to privacy, we do not track search or platform behavior. Instead, advanced AI algorithms will discover new patterns through ML that link everything from demographic data, lifestyle, interests, likes and dislikes, places and whatever else users might enter into their match profiles. Using machine learning we will train different AI models to learn which combination of parameters best predict a good match using feedback from our users. We will build a social network focused on building in-person social bonds – or Life Bonds - in close one-on-one connections or as part of a wider LifeBonder community of user-initiated groups. We will lead a social media revolution to bring user needs into the core business - and keep advertiser needs at the periphery where they belong. We are spearheading the next generation of social media, which will be: • A genuine human connection tool • Subscription-based • Committed to privacy protection through blockchain • Well-moderated • Chronological to keep posts in order NextGen will be more than sharing content with existing friends and friends of friends. NextGen will be all about new meaningful social relations where people are matched in friendships aimed specifically at exactly what each user is looking for, whether: • Establishing a new network of friends as a city newcomer • A running partner • Travel companions • Someone with whom to share a passion • A friend to join you volunteering • And much, much more Anything is possible. LifeBonder is a place for anyone and everyone to find the friendships they most need in life. NextGen social media must take on the challenges existing platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many others face: • Privacy concerns of users and regulatory agencies • A growing disconnect between social media and real life • Increasing aversion to intrusive advertising and "fake news" • Rising social isolation • A growing lack of meaningful social relations
