Tired of Over Sharing and Privacy Concerns? PicIT24 Cuts Through Noise, While Forcing you to Think Before You Share
LONDON, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Free iPhone App, PicIT24, aims to make sharing simple again with its once-a-day
posting limit and unique visual diary capabilities
Instagram recently claimed the rights to sell your personal information to third
parties. This has resulted in a plethora of people searching for alternative photo sharing
services. Can PicIT24′s slick filtered environment fill this void?
Today’s Social Networks offer an unfiltered environment where users can post and share
an unlimited amount of memories and thoughts to an infinite amount of connections. This
mass creates a noise, which makes it hard to connect to those members you really care
about. This often leaves us sorting through system-filtered posts to help us find those
that are most meaningful. It is no wonder then, that despite social app time growing 76%
from last year much of the sentiment after participating in social media was
“overwhelmed”, “anxious” and “wasted time” according to the 2012 Social Report by Nielson.
PicIT24 was created to simplify sharing by increasing the quality of posted memories
by limiting the number of posts members can share to only one photo and/or quote within a
24-hour period. The goal of the app is to make people think before posting by having them
consider one question, “If I could only share one thing today, what would that be?”
“Essentially PiciT24 helps to solve how overloaded and disenchanted users are getting
with social sharing by pushing the curation of content back to the users. Rather than
having users share en masse and have the system use its algorithm to select what to share
to their community, PiciT24 members are now in complete control of the one thing they want
their followers to see that day,” says PicIT24 Founder, Fred Sachs.
“Too much choice leads to indecision, and so, paralyzed, we expose our followers to
overwhelming amounts of poorly chosen content. In turn they struggle to keep up,
understand and appreciate what we have to say. We believe a lack of content selectivity is
counterproductive to your audience. To address these issues PicIT24 was created,” he adds.
On top of increasing the meaningfulness of posts, PicIT24 also allows for creation of
groups to make it even easier to keep in touch with selections of followers. Allowing
members to stay in touch with larger networks in shorter time frames.
In addition, the profile page allows for a unique content to time association, with
every day representing an item of content. Members can also easily filter through posts by
tapping on a location or filtering by calendar date.
PicIT24 is available now on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch as a free
download. Members can also login to the PicIT24 website to view and share memories at
