Post Launches Social Media App to Compete with Big Tech

Post, a new social media app, has launched its iOS app for iPhones, aiming to revolutionize the news landscape. Post’s CEO and founder, Noam Bardin, who was also the former CEO of navigation software company Waze, said, “Getting the app live is the next big step in bringing Post to everyone, everywhere.”

The app works by having users make micropayments to access individual articles, allowing them to view content from multiple news outlets without subscribing to each one. The app includes new features such as native video uploads, push notifications, trending topics, and more, according to the press release.

With Post, users can access a wide range of news sources without having to subscribe to each one, making it a convenient and cost-effective way to stay informed. The micropayment model also benefits publishers, who can earn revenue from their content without relying solely on advertising.

Post’s launch comes at a time when social media platforms are facing increasing scrutiny over their role in spreading misinformation and fake news. By partnering with reputable news outlets and charging users for access to content, Post aims to provide a more reliable and trustworthy source of news. The app’s micropayment model also incentivizes publishers to produce high-quality content that users are willing to pay for.

Post’s native video uploads and push notifications make it easy for users to stay up-to-date on the latest news, while the app’s trending topics feature allows users to see what stories are popular in real-time. The app’s user interface is clean and intuitive, making it easy to navigate and find the content you’re interested in.
