Could social networks be like parties?
FireChat introduces a new type of communication: “firechats”. These are live, fast-paced, and anonymous group discussions. You can join firechats or move easily from one to another, just as you might when attending a party.
And you can also create your own firechats, about the topics, people or communities that interest you – whether it’s the NY Yankees, UC San Diego, Game of Thrones, League of Legends or Italian food.
Last but not least, firechats work even if no connection to the Internet or cellular phone coverage is available. Thanks to Open Garden’s mesh networking technology, you can chat with people around you – even if there is no Internet connection or mobile phone coverage. Whether you’re on the beach or in the subway, at a big game or a trade show, camping in the wild or at a concert, or even abroad, simply fire up the app with a friend or two and find out who else is there.
Get FireChat now, create your own community and start bringing people together.
