daapr is a social media platform dedicated specifically to the sharing and discovery of online content. daapr provides users with a feed that aggregates all the content (i.e. links) shared by the people they are following on the site. The site’s highly visual feed was specifically designed to make it easy for users to quickly scan posted material and determine its relevance to them. Users can also quickly access all the interesting content they’ve posted in the past through their profile page. While link sharing is supported on various social media platforms, daapr allows users to comfortably share directly to an audience of followers who have expressed an explicit interest in what they are reading and watching. Popular apps like Flipboard, Pulse, and Feedly have introduced social functionality, however, none have placed it at the forefront of the user experience. daapr is making content discovery truly social.
