15 Oct Bitzy Social Network Launches in Dallas
Available in app stores as of this week, Dallas startup Bitzy fills a social media niche.
With the growing immediacy of social media culture, Bitzy offers time sensitive sharing. You decide how long your post stays in your friends’ live feeds. Following a post’s expiration, the original content will completely disappear from Bitzy’s news feed, your profile, and even from their servers.
The central allure of this app surrounds its impermanence. In essence, this is the first social media network that provides you complete privacy while still allowing you to stay connected.
Bitzy Sharing Offers Audience Control
Currently users have the option to post photos or texts called “bitz” for any length of time ranging from 5 seconds to a whole week. In addition to its time sensitivity, Bitzy also offers detailed privacy control settings on each individual post: public meaning anyone can see it, and private being viewable only by your mutual followers.
Co-founder Casey Stauffer offers a “bit” of advice.
Just over a week after launch, Bitzy has near 200 users. It is currently available for iOs7 with plans for an Android edition to follow soon.
