At Launchyoo we have only two interests: the first is that you like this social network, you enjoy it, it grows, succeeds and we have a future together: that is true sustainability; the second, that our product and our company survive economically.
To bring the two together in the most natural way possible, we have established that the application will display Ads. The first thing we did was to make sure which is the type of Ads, in the digital environment, that causes the least nuisance. Thus, we have selected the ‘post‘ type Ads, which appear on the wall interspersed between users normal posts.
No pop-up windows, no ads that cut videos in half, no fixed areas that always show photos or videos of advertisers. Only Ad-type posts, visible from time to time while scrolling the screen vertically. In addition, you will find them in much lower quantities than what you have become accustomed to, by force: a huge amount. The goal is not to distort the browsing experience, not to disturb you, but at the same time to give us the opportunity to obtain the necessary benefits from activities to keep going.
The Contacts icon, at the bottom right corner in the footer of the Application, and at the top right corner in the header of the Desktop version, gives you access to the list of your contacts.
The order in which they appear is, from top to bottom:
For each of your present contacts (Friends/Followers and Following), arranged vertically, you will see, on the right side, the icon that allows you to remove them from your contact list. You will be asked for final confirmation before proceeding.
You can, in the same way and with the same icon, delete the friendship request that you have sent to a contact whose decision is still pending.
The fact that a friendship request is pending, either because you have sent it or because it has been sent to you, is also displayed on the profile page of the person in question, with the indication “PENDING“.
In the case of ‘Friendship’ requests (if you and the other person are both User-type profiles) that you have received, your contacts page will display it to you in the first place. You can:
In the event that you are an Influencer, Business or Association type of profile and another profile wishes to follow you, the acceptance will be automatic and a notification will appear to you, letting you know that you have a new follower. These types of profiles are considered public and individual acceptance is not necessary. Of course, you can remove any profile from the list of your Followers or from those you yourself follow (‘Following’).
Friends, Followers and Following lists display profiles in chronological order, from the date you stablished the relationship.
You can find here the different contact methods that we put at your disposal, depending on the reason why you want to contact us. Our team will respond to you as soon as possible.
Within the application itself you will find, in the main Menu, “Help and Support“. You can use it to leave us any comment, suggestion, assessment, indication of problems on the platform, etc. You just have to select the type of need and write us describing the problem or issue.
For the same cases, if you wish, you can contact us through the email email@example.com
We send you informative emails when we update the policies and terms and conditions, or when we introduce important new features. Sometimes we ask you to answer to them, if you wish, with suggestions or comments, to the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in advertising your product or service on Launchyoo, you can write to us at email@example.com. We will solve all your doubts and formalize the process of creating the Ad campaign on the platform.
To get in touch with the team coordinating the project, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have registered to Launchyoo, access will be immediate. The application remembers the last user and keeps it active, so that it will not be necessary to log in again, but if you logged out or you use more than one profile and therefore need to change from one to another, the login screen allows access with the simple indication of email and password.
Why email and not nickname? They ask us often. For two reasons:
Once the data has been compiled, clicking on “Login” will give immediate access to Launchyoo.
The rest of the people on the platform will know you by your nickname. You must indicate it during the registration process and, for now, it is not modifiable. Keep in mind that not all characters are allowed, the registration guide will warn you if you are using any of them. Your nickname appears in your profile page and in all the posts you share on the walls and groups.
But also, you can indicate your real name or another way in which you want to be known. This information appears in your profile page, below your nickname, to the left of your profile type, and next to your profile type when someone opens any of your posts.
When someone searches for you with the search bar, they will be able to find you by your nickname but also by your real name, as long as your real name privacy option allows it. To modify it, you can go to the main Menu, then ‘Privacy’, and decide there who can search and see your real name: everyone, friends of friends, friends, none.
We show you internal notifications and the bell-shaped icon, at the bottom right corner in the APP version, and at the top right corner in the Desktop version, lights up and indicates you the number of these that await your attention. Once you click on the icon, the notifications menu will display them, then you can click on any of them to go to the event in question.
Internal notifications appear when:
These notifications are the bare minimum to enjoy browsing a social platform. We don’t want to bombard you with useless notifications!
But also, Launchyoo can send “push” notifications, which show activity through the application icon on your mobile phone. The cases that can activate these types of notifications are currently:
You can choose to activate push notifications for each of these cases or, on the contrary, deactivate them, accessing Notifications page in the main Menu. You will see some functions in the list that are not available yet… we keep working!
Launchyoo presents functions and modes of use that will be familiar to you, but also new features that you must know to be able to take full advantage of, with the aim of improving your own visibility and digital reach.
Here we leave you a series of suggestions to achieve it, with professional profiles in mind: INFLUENCER, BUSINESS and ASSOCIATION.
Grow in and with Launchyoo.
We DO NOT show your connection status to other users. There is no option that allows you to activate or deactivate this function, it simply is not possible because it is not part of the way we think social networks should be. For a thousand reasons, the use of these products can generate a lot of anxiety, an urge to be permanently connected, sharing, watching… It can be exhausting. When you connect to Launchyoo, we want the experience to be, in this sense, diverse, serene, and not displaying the state of connection of the people who use it is, from our point of view, a step in that direction.
Your profile page is your window to the rest of the Launchyoo universe. The information you include is helpful for others, inside and outside of the platform, to better know who you are, with whom they interact, to be able to form an opinion about you and to be able to find you. Among all its data, only the nickname is always visible and must be entered during the registration process to the application.
We have looked for a fresh aesthetics for the profile page, and it will be you to complete it and give it the final touches, building it to your desires. It’s yours!
The information that can be entered is the following:
Nickname. It is the name by which you identify yourself in Launchyoo. No other user can share it and it will not be possible for you to continue with the registration process if the nickname you indicate is already in use by another user. It is not possible, at the moment, to change your nickname after registration. However, for special needs please contact us at email@example.com and we will assist you.
Real name. You can enter it if you wish, to make it easier for other users to find you in the application. User-type profiles can choose who will be able to see it (everyone, friends of friends, friends, nobody).
Profile photo. Your presentation photo, which will be seen by all Launchyoo users.
Background picture. Accompanying your profile photo on your personal page.
Birthdate. Upcoming features, such as active socialization or the indication of the birthday of the contacts, will require you to indicate it in order to properly function. It is not mandatory information.
Chatyoo. On the left side of the profile photo of any of your contacts (Friends, Followers or Following) you will find the icon that gives access to direct and private conversation with that profile. This icon does not appear on your own page or on that of profiles that are not contacts.
Gender. Indication of your gender. Again, some future features will require you to indicate this in order to function properly. It is not and will not be mandatory information in any case.
Your presentation. Below your profile photo you have the possibility to write a text with no length limit, to introduce yourself to the world. We call it “About me“. Write whatever you want! It is your moment.
Links to websites. You can enter up to four URLs to direct anyone who visits your profile page, with a single click, to your website, your project or company page, your profiles on other social networks… whatever you want.
Furthermore, the profile page displays the number of your contacts, with no possibility to access them though (you will do so through the contacts page icon). They will be your “Friends” and “Following” if you are a User, or your “Followers” if you are an Influencer, Business or Association. “Following” number is not displayed for this profile types.
Your posts in chronological order, your Feed, is also visible. It is accessible by any user who visits your profile page.
And at the bottom part, the last thing to be displayed is your Album. The collection of your best moments, favourite places, photos, best products if you are a company, services if you are a company or professional… They are a collection of multimedia files (photos, videos or audios) that you want to place, in a visible and permanent way, on your profile page.
From your profile page you can add content to the Album belonging to your already shared publications, through the ‘+’ icon positioned on the top right side.
You can watch an explanatory video about the profile page. Click HERE.
And you’ve got everything at glance here:
Sure, and you can follow us on the other social networks if you want. There, we publish corporate content, we announce the news we bring and, in general, we try to generate curiosity and interest so that people sign up for Launchyoo. Yeah, it’s just about advertising a social media on social media! But it is not just any social media… it is Launchyoo.
Click to visit the profile:
Lots of competitor logos around here! 😛
Of course. If you add an image to the post you are preparing, which contains a video or an audio file and therefore you want it to go to the Video or Audio&Podcast wall respectively, the image will serve as the cover. If, on the other hand, you do not add an image, the video will display, as a preview, the first frame, while the audio will display a generic icon of the application.
This image below shows the difference between adding an image as a cover, and not adding it, to an audio file.
Remember, if you add more than one image, the post will go to the Blog&News wall.
You can click HERE to know more about the walls of content.
Yes!. It is possible to add them, one per publication. In addition, they do not influence the calculation of which Wall your post will go to (more about Walls HERE). For example, if you write a short text to be published in MINIMES, if you include a GIF it will still go there.
To add a GIF to the post you are creating, select the icon to attach an image. In the drop-down menu that appears you will find the option “GIPHY“. Tap on it and you will directly access the GIF selection screen, where you can write words that help you find what you are looking for.
The loaded GIF appears, miniaturized, in the right side of the attached files area.
GIFs appear first in publications, above any other audiovisual content and text. After all, they describe emotions, moods and … what is more important than that?
But this is not all. In Launchyoo you can also add GIFs to comments and nested comments (replies to comments). To do this, simply press the button with the “plus” sign to the left of the text area dedicated to the comment. You will directly access the GIF selection and you will be able to incorporate it, with or without additional text.
GIFs are a wonderful tool. They allow you to share an opinion, a state of mind, in a fun and straightforward way. Launchyoo seeks to be a space to share those things in a genuine way, so … let’s gif!
The first and best way to invite friends is… through word of mouth! We are proud to think that our Launchers talk about the application to other people who, curious, will sign up. This is how we grow!
In addition, within the application Menu you can find the option Invite your friends. Its colour is unmistakable, you will see it right away. It allows you to send an email to whoever you want from within the platform, writing the subject and the message. The person you send it to will receive your email with the direct link to the Android and iOs Stores, so that they can download Launchyoo if they wish.
There is yet another way that is surely more interesting, because it creates curiosity: sharing a post or a profile page outside the platform. Launchyoo is an “open” social network, so its content is visible to non-registered users, although with some limitations:
When an unregistered person tries to perform an action that is not consented, Launchyoo invites them to register to go on.
With all this, a nice way to “launch the hook” to people you know can be to just share with them your own profile page or interesting publications. Click HERE to see how to do it. You find it in the final part of the article, when it comes to sharing outside of Launchyoo. Thus, if they like what they see, they might consider registering.
Compared to the big social networks we all know, we are still very small. We totally depend on you and your desire to make Launchyoo grow so that it really does.
And of course, we appreciate that you believe in us.
It is possible to modify or reset your password from the Login page of the application, through the option “Forgot password?“.
Click there to access the menu for resetting or modifying your password. You will be asked to indicate the registration email. Once this is provided, click on Authentication code.
You will then receive an email to proceed with the change. Click on RESET PASSWORD. In the email you will also find the reset code, a very long alphanumeric code.
When you have clicked on RESET PASSWORD, you will be automatically sent to Launchyoo’s password update page.
You will find your registration email, the automatically compiled alphanumeric code and the space for you to type your new password twice. You do not therefore need to remember the old password. After entering the new password twice, click ACTIVATE to update it. It will take immediate effect.
Alternatively, when you clicked on Authentication Code right after entering your email, you will be able to manually paste the alphanumeric code, should you have already received it, and then enter the new password twice. To go ahead this way, make sure you have activated the “I already have an authentication code” tag.
At Launchyoo we use the latest development technologies available. This allows us to make improvements to the application in real time, called “over the air”, which will be made available to all users automatically. This is why it might happen that you find, from time to time, improvements with respect to the last time you connected. You should join the public group &LaunchyooFuncionalidades within the application to stay up to date.
For major updates or those that require changes in the structure of the application, it will be necessary to access the Android, iOS or Huawei Store, depending on your device, and download the available update. The official profile of the platform, ‘Launchyoo’ (be sure to follow it) will warn whenever such a thing is necessary.
The Desktop version does not require any action, it updates automatically and autonomously.
Remember, if you have any problem during registration and need assistance, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will be happy to help you.
There are a number of reasons why you might have trouble when trying to sign up. In most cases these are easily solvable issues. Here is a list of some of the possible reasons why you might not be able to complete the Launchyoo registration process:
This is in regards to the main registration screen. Once you have compiled everything correctly and clicked on “Create an account”, an email will be sent to you. It is part of the two-steps verification process, necessary to ensure the security of your registration and your data.
If this email does not reach you, it is likely that it has ended up in your SPAM folder. Please take a look there. If it is not there and you confirm that the mail does not reach you, please try to register again, it could just be the case that you misspelled the e-mail address. This happens quite often, actually it has happened to the one writing these lines a couple of times, while creating test profiles. And if there’s nothing that seems to work, contact us by sending an email to email@example.com. We have the means to finalise the registration process for you.
The final phase consists of ACTIVATING your profile on Launchyoo, by clicking on the button that you will find in the activation email, which will take you to a page on Launchyoo in which everything is pre-compiled and you will only need to click on ‘ACTIVATE’.
And that’s it!, you have to go now to the LOGIN page, enter your email and password, and enter Launchyoo for the first time. For future occasions, these data should have been memorized. Make sure, in fact, during this first Login, that you are actually on the LOGIN page and not on any of the other pages (Registration, Activation …).
We work to further simplify the registration process; we understand that it is essential so that no one misses the benefits of this social network.
The rules for creating strong, safe passwords are universal. We provide you with a series of rules and suggestions to help you achieve this:
If you don’t remember your password or want to change it, take a look at How Can I Reset My Password? to know how to proceed.
If you detect unexpected changes in your password or you are having troubles with your account or your profile in the platform, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once inside the App, there are many places you can go to to find out more about what you can do, what’s new and how to enjoy the platform to the max. To get information about Launchyoo in general:
Information on recommended sizes of your images allows you to optimize them for the best possible display on Launchyoo.
Regarding the profile page:
Profile photo: 600 × 600. Vertical anchor above, Centered horizontally. The corners of the image are rounded.
Background picture. It differs depending on whether it is the App or Desktop version, for optimization reasons.
App version: 1200×1200 ideal, tends to 4/3. Vertical anchor above. Centered horizontally.
Desktop version: 1200×1200 ideal, tends to 16/9. Vertical anchor above. Horizontal anchoring on both sides. The bottom is expanded based on the aspect ratio of the image.
In both cases, the lower area of the background photo is partially covered by the profile picture and by the lower band of rounded edges. Tip: the central focus of the image should be off-centered about 150 pixels upwards, from the geometric center.
Profile and background photos in App version:
Profile and background photos in Desktop version:
Regarding the preview of images in posts:
App version: longest side 1200 pixels, the other is cropped if necessary. Horizontal anchor on both sides, centred vertically.
Desktop version: the aspect ratio of the image is respected, without cropping.
And finally, some information regarding files weight:
The maximum weight of the images uploaded in the posts is 18 Mb (total weight, be it a single image or be four of them which is the max possible).
The maximum size of the videos and audio files is 400 Mb.
Those of us who have used social networks for years deserved a reset, a start from scratch with an ethical, sustainable, transparent platform, worthy of our times and of what the future deserves. We measure sustainability in how our future is assured through your satisfaction, respect for you and your data, and the return to the society that we give.
Launchyoo is a platform in which we all have a place, but as in all cases of coexistence of a large number of people, with diverse sensitivities, interests, tastes, ways of seeing life and the world, it is necessary to establish a series of criteria to ensure good coexistence between us. To some, these rules will seem too lax, to others, too rigid. It is normal, everyone has their own vision and it is impossible to please everyone, but we can tell you that we have built them and apply them with maximum transparency and the absolute desire that they truly serve a purpose: that we are all at ease in this social network.
We place here the first two articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, whose enlightening simplicity and strength we could never match. Did you ever think that you would find them in the explanations about the community rules of a social network?
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Based on this and as our guide, we ask you, please, to:
Launchyoo does not allow, at the moment, to change the email address associated with the account you have created. This greatly limits the possibilities of profile hacking.
But if the email change becomes necessary, you can send us a request to email@example.com with the information of the new email. Our team will proceed to validate your identity and, once made, the change will be implemented and you will be notified.
In this way, we will never actively contact you, on the platform, proposing the change of email address and requesting new data. Anyone who acts in this way should quickly be the subject of suspicion on your side and the matter notified for us to operate accordingly.
If you have been a victim of hacking or you think someone you know has been, please contact us immediately at the email address above. We will be active to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
Ownership over the rights of exploitation and use by the creator or creators of content is a fundamental right, protected by law. At Launchyoo we take it very seriously and will act against any action that violates it. Intellectual property rights include copyright and trademark rights.
To publish or insert content on Launchyoo, you must hold the legitimate ownership of all the exploitation rights which allow their reproduction, distribution, public communication – even in the modalities of rendering it available – and transformation, by any electronic and digital means.
In addition, even if you are the legitimate owner of the exploitation rights over the content that you publish or share on Launchyoo, you must obtain the corresponding authorizations or permissions from the individuals that appear in such publications, in relation to their image rights, so as not to generate illegitimate interference in honour, in personal and family privacy and in the image itself, and to avoid violation of their rights in terms of data protection.
Everything said above is valid and effective for any social network and, in general, for any data exchange platform.
You can warn us of an infringement of any of these terms by letting us know the publication that has committed it (Flag of a publication), by writing us a message through the Help and Support option in the application menu, or by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you find content on Launchyoo that you believe violates your personal rights or the laws in force in your geographic area, region or country, it is highly likely that it violates Our Community Rules. For example, apology for violence or terrorism, bullying, harassment, explicit sexual content, violation of privacy and individual rights, are things that cannot be consented within the new social network.
We provide you with the option to Flag a publication (click HERE to learn more) so that you can send us information about any inappropriate content. The icon from which you access it, […] three horizontal dots, is available at the bottom right corner of each post.
If the motivation for your complaint is the violation of your own rights, we ask you to clearly indicate this in the space dedicated to additional comments. Our content management staff will verify it as soon as possible.
Keep in mind that we use fair and equitable criteria, our philosophy is open and we promote respect between users, between people. That being said, the fact that you indicate us a post with content that you think is inappropriate does not guarantee that we will remove it.
Obviously, in case you are requesting to eliminate your own data (though you can find the tools to eliminate any post or information present in your profile page yourself), we will proceed on the double.
First of all, if you are reading this information out of necessity, please receive our sincere condolences. You can notify us of the death of a person with a Launchyoo account via email@example.com.
Our policy in these cases is to close the deceased person’s account. It is an intimate event and we want everything to remain in the hands and in the memory of those close to the missing person.
By virtue of article 3. Data of the deceased persons, of the LOPDGDD, if a relative identified as such requests it, we will apply to him or her the right of PORTABILITY of data that corresponds to each user, in this case, to the deceased user, on his or her own data. It will be possible for this relative to obtain the data of the deceased person in a structured format, and safeguard it. Data will then be removed from the platform.
As an exception, the people referred to in the previous paragraph may not access the data of the deceased, or request its rectification or deletion, when the deceased person has expressly prohibited it or so is established by the law.
In the event of the death of minors, these powers may also be exercised by their legal representatives.
Launchyoo is a platform for people who want to share, communicate and enjoy social networks in a different, more serene way. There is space for everyone here, as long as consideration is shown towards the rest of the users and the rules of coexistence set in place, based on mutual respect and freedom of expression.
We will never take part in disputes, we will never bias the information and we will never show our personal opinion in any aspect under discussion, but we will take the necessary actions to protect the community and all the people who coexist in it. First of all, illicit actions cannot be allowed, and will be reported to the competent authorities as soon as they are known to occur. In addition, inappropriate content, which may damage the general sensitivity, will be removed and the user who published it will be informed. You can consult the section “Flag a publication as inappropriate” to learn more about how to indicate that a post is indeed inappropriate. We therefore reserve the right to remove content, an advertisement or, ultimately, to block a profile, if it is repetitive in actions that may harm the community. When doing so, we will communicate beforehand. Before taking actions we talk, explain, discuss, not like the bots on other social networks. We are humans and for humans.
There are many specific cases that cannot have space in Launchyoo. We will treat each case separately, with objective and reasonable criteria. We only ask that, together, we try to make this social network a place of interaction from a positive attitude. Launchyoo was born to improve the present and future of social networks, and we hope that this is also reflected in how we all make use of it.
Thanks for being a #Launcher.
If another user has shared information in a post, through the content of the text or attached photos, video or audio, that violates your privacy, that of a relative of yours (particular emphasis always placed on minors), or that of a person who due to disability, illness, being hospitalized or limited, cannot defend him or herself, or if in general you observe a publication that supposes a flagrant violation of the intimacy and privacy of another person, we strongly suggest that you contact us.
Special case refers to that of minors. If a parent or legal guardian asks us to remove any content featuring their child, under the age of 13, we will do so without delay. If the minor is between 13 and 17 years old, the minor him or herself will have to send us the request to delete the content, unless he or she presents a physical or mental disability. We therefore encourage you to discuss it with them.
We point out, in any case, that for reasons of potential visible content on the platform, the Launchyoo registration process requires confirmation of being 16 years old or more.
To contact us you do not need to fill in any report or to go to other links. You can inform us from within the platform itself. Simply, access the function Flag a post present in all posts, accessible with the icon […] (three horizontal dots) at the bottom right corner.
You will access the menu where you can select one of the available options and write a comment, as long as necessary, indicating what the problem is. The more specific you are, the easier you will make it for us to make a decision about it.
In addition, you can contact us from outside the platform, through the email firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, we are at your disposal for whatever you need.
We are here to listen to you. Any situation in which we can apply ourselves to solve it, improve the platform, protect our community or allow you to better understand and enjoy Launchyoo, we will be happy to get to work.
If the problem refers to the content of a post shared by another user, which you consider inappropriate, you have the option to ‘Flag’ the publication. You can learn more at Report an Abuse.
If it is a technical problem that you have identified or a question, or if you want to unsubscribe from Launchyoo (🙁), you can write us from within the application. In the main menu you will find Help and Support, where you can give all the details about your request or complaint. Here you can also ask for generic assistance, leave us a suggestion, an assessment, a comment or report an abuse (user with inappropriate behaviour).
When we answer you, you will receive an email to your registration email from our customer service team, via email email@example.com.
One other thing: we suggest you to participate in the public group &LaunchyooFuncionalidades, where many of the options, functionalities and news about the application are explained. It is sure to solve many of your doubts about how Launchyoo works. If you still have unclear questions, get in touch with us and we will be happy to help you.
And for any case in general, you can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The same people who receive the information by the other methods are also available to reply from this email address.
The new social network does not use algorithms that preliminarily eliminate content, without the action of people. It is you, the users, who tells us, with your own criteria, if the post shared by another user is inappropriate for any reason. From Launchyoo we will analyse each notification and act from a criterion of freedom and sensitivity. We will not apply censorship but some shared rules and thresholds need to be respected, and we reserve the right to remove posts from the Walls or from Groups that we consider inappropriate. We will proceed to contact users who repeat posting inappropriate content, in order to allow their alignment with respect to the limits of what can be shared. Informing, always.
The option to indicate a publication as inappropriate is available as “Flag a publication“, after clicking on the icon […] at the bottom right corner of each post. It is possible to indicate:
In any of the abovementioned cases, you can write a text describing us, with all the detail you consider necessary, the reasons why you think the post should be deleted. You will help us to act. Obviously, your indication is absolutely anonymous.
The texts, images, audio files and videos that you upload to Launchyoo in the posts you share are not directly downloadable from the mobile application. The audio files are not in the web version either. The option of generating images by copying the screen (“screenshot”) or using specialized applications to download content in the cloud, typically videos, are external methods and are beyond our control.
The information you have shared on Launchyoo is available and can be manipulated through the editing or deletion of the posts, from your user profile and the actions available there.
The same thing happens with the information available in your profile page, which you have filled in yourself and that only you can modify or delete as you desire.
There are three exceptions to this rule:
Therefore, if you wish, you can make use of this right as a user, by writing to us at email@example.com, and we will be happy to answer your request.
Your information, your data, are the most precious thing for us. It is the treasure that we keep locked up, and respect towards them, towards you as a user and towards your experience when using the application, is what differentiates us the most from the rest of social networks.
Launchyoo requires you to be 16 or older to create a profile, and this needs to be confirmed during the registration process, but it might not be a sufficient deterrent.
If your son or daughter, below this age, uses Launchyoo and you are aware of it, it is up to you how to act. If you do not authorize this use, the first step is to uninstall the application from the device. But if that is not enough, you can contact us to request the removal of your child’s user profile. We will ask you for additional information to authenticate you as a parent or legal guardian, then we will proceed.
If, on the contrary, you accept the use of the platform by a minor, you must be aware that they will be exposed to information and image, video or audio files with potential content for adults. Logically, we are not talking here about explicit sex or extremely violent content, for example, which are not allowed, but we are talking about content that, in some cases, could have a tone not suitable for minors. Therefore, we invite you, together with your child, to choose the contacts and profiles they follow, the groups they are part of and also their personal tags, with which they define their tastes. These are the most important tools when it comes to having control over what will be displayed in the application.
It is up to your freedom and your discretion as a parent/guardian to decide what is best for your children. We are here to help you if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to distance ourselves, in any case, from data theft. The theft of information from our database is a highly unlikely event, but not impossible. This event, if occurring, will be absolutely beyond our wishes and will be reported to the authorities immediately.
Launchyoo will provide the advertiser with data about the progression and results of the advertising campaign, so that it can monitor its evolution and draw conclusions. It will be data of a purely statistical nature, without direct relationship with the individual data of the users.
Welcome to Launchyoo, the social network you deserve.
If you want to delete your account, you just have to do it through an indication within the platform in the “Help and Support” section, in the App Menu. Click HERE to see the options on this page. The elimination request should accompany the “Call for assistance” marking.
Alternatively, you can write us a message at email@example.com. You must indicate in the message your nickname and registration email address to confirm your desire to unsubscribe (snif…)
Once we have received this information, we will proceed to remove your profile and account and delete all your files and all your posts, comments and interactions from our databases. It will be as if you’d never existed in Launchyoo, which brings pain to our hearts.
The process can take up to two weeks due to the progressive erasure of data on the servers. We will notify you when it is complete.
As much as it is sad for us to see any of our users leave, if it is your wish, we will appreciate very much if you let us know what you did not like, why are you leaving, so that you can give us an opportunity to improve… and see you back.
We live in the age of the internet, immersed in the cloud, surrounded by computers and connected devices, data, passwords … We are used to being cautious in our actions because we know that there are and will always be malicious people waiting for errors, omissions or naivety on our side. We want Launchyoo to be a secure platform and allow you to navigate serenely. We work for it day by day, but we need you to do your part by following a series of guidelines that you surely know very well:
We cannot be held liable for any damages or injuries you may suffer while or due to using Launchyoo, but we are here to help and advise you so that they don’t happen in the first place.
At Launchyoo we want to provide you a serene browsing experience. We give you control of what you see, we minimize the number of ads, we put the emphasis on content and its quality. In addition, the entire application, both in APP and web version (https) is architected with data security in mind.
But it also depends on you, it is in your hands. First, make sure you use a sufficiently complex password. We do not enforce a minimum number of characters or the use of special characters, often annoying ties. Therefore, it will be up to you to decide what level of complexity you consider appropriate.
When you log in, you will be asked for your password and registration email instead of your nickname. Your nickname is known to everyone, your registration email is definitely not.
When you register and before you can access Launchyoo for the first time, an email will be sent to the address you have indicated. It is an activation email, two-step authentication so that only you can complete the process and move on.
Logically, we invite you not to provide your account login data to anyone, inside the platform or outside. We will never contact you to ask for your profile information, which could allow us to identify you, within the platform. We will always do this through our official emails, in particular firstname.lastname@example.org. It is to this email that you should write if your account has been hacked, and we will immediately contact you and resolve the situation. We invite you to contact us if you think a friend’s account has been compromised. Ideally, check with this person first that there is indeed a problem.
Always log out of Launchyoo when using a public device or someone else’s, other than your own.
Be always careful with malicious software, which can cause damage to your computer or mobile phone and, among other things, access the registration and login data of your different programs.
Make sure that access to your mobile phone is restricted by password, PIN, fingerprint, facial image (it is less secure) or pattern. Otherwise, anyone who got hold of your mobile device could have access to your applications.
Do not click on suspicious links, as they could contain malware or viruses.
If you have any question or issue, contact us through the Help and Support option in the application, or by email email@example.com, and we will always be happy to help you.
On Launchyoo, this matter is quite straightforward. Direct. There are not dozens of privacy options that act on as many settings, with which it is decided who will see what, the data that the application will use to define the tastes of the users through the Artificial Intelligence at operation, the characteristics of the personal profile that serve to receive the most suitable advertisements based on the profiling that has been made of us, and many other things over which we do not even have control.
Launchyoo and all the effort behind it have been born from transparency and respect for the user as the center of the entire project, with the user experience and the serenity of navigation as focal points of the sustainability of which we are guarantors. And to all this we have added new functionalities and new ways of enjoying digital socialization.
When it comes to what you share on the platform, it is entirely up to you. Launchyoo is an open space by definition, and what you share can in principle be visible to everyone. It is, therefore, your choice to share it or not, with whom, through your actions.
If you are aware that someone has violated your privacy, for example by publishing photographs of you without your consent, the first step should always be that you contact that person and try to resolve the situation. But if this is not possible or is ineffective, please report the incident to us through the flagging option of a post, or by contacting us via email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help you, with a humane treatment that distinguishes us from the impersonality of the large social networks.
Launchyoo is an international digital space, a modern and innovative social network with a clear call for transparency and sustainability, with new functions, an alternative way of living the world of social networking. The available options for B2B, B2C and networking are an easy-to-use alternative to expand and diversify the digital professional footprint.
The Launchyoo community is growing. The “Launchers” number in the thousands, and are present especially in Spain and South America.
A social network is a space for exchange, for the presence of people who seek to share information and experiences, and that allows to know more about what is of interest. It is a unique opportunity for companies and professionals and the large social networks know this and exploit it perfectly.
But beyond the possibility of including Ads on the platform (click HERE to find out more), Launchyoo offers a series of new features that take the possibilities of spreading the message itself a step further. Attention to Launchyoo as an “open” social network, a concept that we explain at the end.
The presence, in a stable plant, of a company or professional in a social network is essential nowadays. It is becoming more and more necessary to “be where the people are”, interact with current and potential clients, present one’s products or services in an interactive way, disseminate the business culture…
A company, a professional, who does not use social networks to their advantage, will find itself in an unfavourable position, disconnected from the public.
Launchyoo brings functions never seen before into the realm of social networks to promote fluid and genuine relationships within the platform. Business-to-Business or Business-to-Client relationships will be easier and more durable thanks to some of them. Therefore, if you are an entrepreneur or a member of a marketing or customer service team, have a large or small business, or you are a freelancer offering services, please take note:
The coexistence of different types of profiles facilitates relationships between professionals or companies with users, current or potential clients. It is something never seen before in a social network.
Click HERE to learn more about the types of contacts on Launchyoo.
And last but not least, Launchyoo is an “open” platform. The posts and profiles can be shared outside and be accessible by any person, even if they are not yet registered. In the case of profiles, personal data and the Album will not be visible. Neither will be the full Feed. In the case of posts, it will not be possible for the non-registered person to interact with them. Therefore, in Launchyoo the content is susceptible to Google searches, SEO and the use of backlinks, connecting the profile itself and the posts to other web pages and platforms, enhancing the reach as it is not achievable in the rest of the large networks.
As you can see, the new possibilities that Launchyoo offers to professionals, companies and businesses are many, keeping always in mind that this is truly the first social network in which it is possible to communicate about sustainability, transparency and ethics, in an environment which finally is coherent with the message. It’s up to you to advantage of all this.
For any questions, you can write us at email@example.com
For questions or needs related to the publication of advertisements, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And if you want to get in touch with the project coordinators, write to email@example.com
The possibility of advertising on Launchyoo exists for all users, in fact this is the only necessary requirement: to have a profile in the application. The Launchyoo Advertising Terms and Conditions describe all the conditions to be able to advertise with us. From a content point of view, it must be an advertisement of a professional nature: we do not accept the creation of advertisements to, for example, congratulate a friend’s birthday or any other personal motivation. Therefore, they are reserved spaces to give visibility to a product or a service, offered by a company or a professional. A special type of consented Ads are those that seek to give higher visibility to a profile on the platform, as long as it is of the “Influencer“, “Business” or “Association” type.
Launchyoo proposes two types of campaigns, CPC (Cost per Click) and CPM (Cost per 1000 Views), with variable unit costs depending on the total budget and with different priorities available. To know all the information, we invite you to visit the ADS website on Launchyoo. We offer the possibility of exploring a new, growing market, inherently respectful of the very rules on which it is founded, and at truly competitive costs.
The publication of an Ad on Launchyoo is done by the platform’s advertiser support. For this, we will need an image, video or audio file, with certain characteristics:
In addition, we will need you to provide us with the nickname of the profile, which we will verify, a short text that accompanies the Ad, of a maximum of 150 characters, and a URL to which to redirect the public. With all this information, which is to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and the confirmation of payment from our e-commerce platform accessible from the same ADS website, with a security and trust seal (Stripe and PayPal), we will proceed to publish the Ad, which will be present until the budget is exhausted based on the type of campaign and priority.
Age, gender and geography biases are possible. Send us this information along with what is indicated above.
The Ad will appear as if it were any other post, with the only difference associated with the fact that the text “ADVERTISING” will accompany the advertiser’s profile photo and nickname.
We want to distinguish ourselves by the treatment given to our clients, human and personal. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Finally, keep in mind the nature of this social network, ethical, transparent, responsible, when identifying ourselves as a potential platform for the expansion of your product. Furthermore, remember the minimum age of 16 years old. For all these reasons, regarding certain types of Ads and certain types of content, we reserve the right to reject them without any final charge, if we identify the problem before the launch of the campaign. Again, you have all the information in the Advertising Terms and Conditions on the platform.
Although it is advisable that a BUSINESS type profile has been created on the platform (click HERE to find out more about this profile), in which to support the advertising campaigns, this is not essential. Any type of profile can have an Ad campaign associated with it. The only necessity, as we have already said, is that the advertiser must have a profile created on Launchyoo, and the advertisement must be professional in nature.
Launchyoo allows the choice of one type of profile out of four available, during the registration process. We are the first social network in which this is possible, so that each of us can choose the type of profile that best suits the use that will be made of the network. We are interested in creating a heterogeneous, varied environment, where it is also clearer what each one is looking for.
This is especially true in the case of the BUSINESS profile. Just as a person who chooses the USER profile does so because he or she seeks to have a fun, light use of the social network, talking with friends and family, following Influencers, keeping up with news and blogs, the BUSINESS profile is more pragmatic.
We have created it to give companies, large and small, businesses, or professionals, the opportunity to create a stable position in our social network and to show their natural intention to find new clients and followers, create networking, offer their products or services.
The rest of Launchyoo users are aware of this differentiation and will act accordingly. This is the strength of the existence of differentiated profiles.
If you want to know more about the types of profiles, you can visit our brief explanation about it HERE.
The type of profile is shown to the rest of the users in various positions so, like BUSINESS, it will be clear to the rest that this is yours. It will in fact be clearly visible both on your profile page and in your posts.
As a BUSINESS, your interaction with the rest of the profiles is as follows:
When you share content in the Walls, it will be more likely to be seen by those who follow you and those you follow, and by people with an affinity for the hashtags you write (see the information on Personal Tags). If RE-POSTs of your post are made, all the merit through interactions (Like/Love, Yes/No or Star rating, Launchyoo introduces this novelty) will go to you, the creator of the content.
And one important thing. In Launchyoo, interactions to posts are counted and displayed.
There are a series of options, available for all profiles, which can be very useful for a BUSINESS-type profile:
Launchyoo, due to its variety in so many aspects, positions itself as a new generation platform which combines options so far only seen, a few at a time, in the rest of social networks. The BUSINESS type profile is one of the most important of these.
In addition, this platform offers the possibility of introducing sponsored posts, as advertisements, which will be visible by other users. This allows consolidating one’s own position within the social network and increasing the number of impacts, as happens in the rest of the networks.
More information about this HERE.
You can contact us for any need or question: email@example.com
Launchyoo presents functions and modes of use that will be familiar to you, but also new features that you must know to be able to take full advantage of, with the aim of improving your own visibility and digital reach.
Here we leave you a series of suggestions to achieve it, with professional profiles in mind: INFLUENCER, BUSINESS and ASSOCIATION.
Grow in and with Launchyoo.
Opening a “BUSINESS” type profile on Launchyoo can generate many benefits: it can improve your visibility, create community and engagement, facilitate more fluid and direct communication with your clients and contacts, bring traffic to your website, improve SEO (in this social network as in no other), help sales and, of course, increase the trust placed in your brand, its presence and recognition.
The fact is that social networks allow companies to be given greater visibility, “being where people are” is the phrase that is usually used. But increased exposure can also have negative aspects and a strategy needs to be developed to minimize them. There is often talk of “having to put out fires” because of inappropriate comments or out of place posts.
In order to establish a positive and useful dynamics for your professional profile on Launchyoo, it is necessary to manage it correctly so that your intention to increase online reputation and reach is effective.
If you arrive to this article without knowing the fundamental aspects of Launchyoo yet, you will find links in the text that lead to the description of the most relevant ones.
There are a series of previous steps to carry out before creating the profile or, at least, before starting to operate with it:
Success of a professional profile on Launchyoo is a matter of preparation and anticipation. This is the case in any social network but, moreover, as on Launchyoo the quality of the content is much more important (Business profiles cannot follow User profiles) and the relationships are genuine and based on people’s tastes (Personal Tags and Contacts Temperature), putting all this into practice is based on the good use that you will make of the content you share and on the active search for genuine relationships, and not on the typical massive campaigns, on “I follow you if you follow me “, on the unconditional search for the largest possible number of” Likes “or on trying to satisfy an algorithm so that it displays your content to more people…
Once inside the platform, you will maximize your benefits by following a series of guidelines.
Remember, creating a BUSINESS type profile is simple, the choice is made on the registration page itself.
Once inside the platform:
We have overcome the “Like” and similar things as main mean for interacting with posts. Launchyoo offers new modes of interaction and we are developing others. We call this new variety available the “advanced interaction”.
Inside the post creation page you will find the possibility to select what type of interaction you desire for your post.
Currently, the available types are:
Like/Love. These are the classics, which could not be missing. You can indicate if “you like” a post or that “you love” it (“you like it a lot”).
You can see, at any time, the names (nicknames) of the profiles that have interacted with the publications and what they have voted or indicated in their interaction. At Launchyoo we are transparent, everyone.
In this social network the number of user interactions is counted and displayed. It is something measurable and as such, we do not want to hide it.
We at Launchyoo want to give you control of what you see and take it away from the Artificial Intelligence algorithms, which observe the use we make of the network and then decide for us what we will see. To do this, we have activated a series of simple-to-use mechanisms that have never been seen before. One of these is the contacts temperature.
On the contacts page (Friends/Following or Followers/Following, depending on your type of profile), the list of all of them is presented and, for each one, a horizontal bar allows you to indicate three temperatures: cold, warm and hot. Depending on the choice made for each user, you will see more or less of what he/she publishes, on your own walls.
You can watch an explanatory video. Click HERE.
Launchyoo offers you the possibility of creating and participating in Groups. These can be of any size, from small, for a group of work colleagues for example (even for two people only), to huge groups for massive events.
The creation of a group is simple, through the “Groups” menu, accessible from the Main Menu of the App.
There are three types available, and you must select the type of group during its creation:
The administrator, creator of the group, indicates the name and a description. He or she will manage the requests of other users to come in in case of a Private or Secret group. It is not be possible to change the name of a group or its typology once it has been created.
The “Groups” menu, accessible through the icon in the lower left area of the screen (APP), upper right in the Desktop version of Launchyoo, displays the groups that have been created, the groups to which you belong, the groups to which you have submitted an application for membership and are awaiting approval, and the people who have requested to join a group that you created and are awaiting your acceptance as administrator.
It is possible to share publications only with the members of a group to which one belongs, through the option available in the page where posts are created and shared.
To post on a group you belong to, you have two options:
Launchyoo is FUNCTIONALITIES and it is AURA.
It is a new small social network, aware of entering into a saturated market and with a few mammoth companies that overshadow everything. It is, on the lips of many, a crazy idea. And of course it is being, as we anticipated, extremely difficult to reach big audiences. But that pushes us to try harder, because the stakes are high.
The new FUNCTIONALITIES that we bring to the playing field are many, various and very interesting. The separate walls, the personal tags, the contacts temperature, the advanced interaction, the three types of groups, the four different profiles, and soon the active socialization and the events, are a big, big deal considering how little huge social networks have advanced in recent years.
But all these are nothing but the necessary “dressing” so that a person, when arriving at Launchyoo, will stay. And although the functionalities are part of our call effect, they are not the most important aspect of it.
It is the AURA. It is our vision of the future. And that this vision becomes part of the way of living the lives for many people, depends not only the future of Launchyoo.
The embryo that gave birth to this social network was the intention to combat a way of doing business that must be overcome. The global footprint left by the companies that provide services to us should be part of the reasons why we choose their products.
And what about today’s large social networks? That are filled with sales scandals and data leaks, that reside in tax havens to save themselves from returning anything to society after everything they get from it (from us!), that use Artificial Intelligence algorithms to choose the information that reaches the us with purely economic motivations, that promote addiction in pursuit of profit maximization, that automatically and indiscriminately censor content, that drown us with advertisements, that see users not as customers, but as cows to be milked… The real question we need to start answering is: what kind of future awaits us if all companies would operate in the same way?
The next question is, then, why do we continue using their services en masse? Probably due to a mixture of indifference to problems that do not seem to touch us closely, interests linked to everything we have and have achieved so far, and to the lack of a valid alternative. They are reasonable and natural motivations, nothing to say about that.
But finally, the alternative has arrived, technically up to the task (we are working hard on that!), With very interesting new functionalities, a vision for the future, with an aura that is based on ethics, transparency and sustainability, NOT doing every one of the things that today’s large social network companies do. And it’s called Launchyoo. Have you taken note? 🙂
From here, it is up to each of us to make our own decisions. Our desire is that, from now on, people look at the aura of companies and the products we consume as a fundamental part of the decisions we make. And if so, Launchyoo has a good future ahead of it and will ensure, through the footprint it may leave, that the future ahead is positive.
You can visit the “About us“.
They are one of the important functions, along with the Contacts Temperature, that allow you to regain control of what you see and take it away, thus, from the Artificial Intelligence algorithms.
Launchyoo is based, amongst others, on the personal tags that each user has built around them in order to display information. These are those words or phrases that define, to a greater extent, your tastes and interests. They define what we call your “sphere of tastes”. You can enter new tags and delete those present at any time as your tastes and focus change, in any language, in the “Personal Tags” menu, in the Settings section.
Through the personal tags, your contacts (friends and followers/following), their temperature and the languages you speak, Launchyoo will show you the publications on your different walls, in chronological order. We want to give you, as a user, a differential value: that you see things that really interest you, and not those that are polarized and filtered by algorithms and that are monotonous, always displaying you the same things and from the same people, and you can’t really do anything about it.
We took great deal of trouble to substitute the IA with something completely new, unseen, and that puts you in the center and gives you control of what you see. We hope you’ll feel this difference. Fresh air.
You can watch a short explanatory video about personal tags. Click HERE.
Separate Walls in Launchyoo are an interesting novelty in the world of Social Networks. Seeing the type of content that you fancy when you fancy, being able to target your audience in a more specific way, promoting spaces, within the same platform, where you can enjoy what you like most.
But with the “immersive” mode it is no longer just about different content, but also about different user experience.
It has been developed in the PICS and VIDEO Walls with the aim of allowing a more dynamic navigation, suitable for the tastes of young people but not only. Of course, the “normal” navigation mode, with vertical scroll, is still available.
To enter the immersive mode on this Wall, just tap on an image. Photos are viewed in full screen mode, with the text of the publication overprinted. It is possible to go to the next or previous content with horizontal scroll. It will also be possible to interact with the publication directly and zoom in through the icon in the upper right corner.
There is no stopwatch that makes you to the next image after a short time. We don’t like it at all. In Launchyoo, it is you who decides how much time you want to spend on each image, and you will scroll horizontally to move on to the next one.
To exit the immersive mode, simply press the “back” button on the phone or the icon at the top left of the screen. You will return to normal navigation.
To access the immersive mode while on this Wall, simply start a video. The Player will occupy the entire screen, with the possibility of a fixed zoom and a mute/unmute option (icons on the upper right corner). The text of the post appears overprinted, you can interact directly (Like/Love, Yes/No or Stars rate, depending on the choice made by who published). The video progress bar is vertical, located on the right side. Launchyoo is the first platform to have developed this configuration, which is much more comfortable and ergonomic. Progress dot moves down as the video goes on.
To go to another video, by tapping on the screen, two icons are displayed next to the central Play/Pause. They allow access to the next video (below icon) or previous (above icon).
When one video ends, the next one starts automatically.
To exit the immersive mode, simply press the “back” button on the phone or the icon located at the top left of the screen. You will return to normal navigation.
No other Social Network facilitates modes of use, experiences, so varied and suitable for everyone’s taste, all through an always intuitive and easy interface. Launchyoo is true innovation.
Each user has his or her own Personal Album, a collection of their photos, videos and audio files that they have chosen to be a permanent part of their profile and visible to others.
We travel in the opposite direction and we are proud of it: the trend now on social networks rolls toward expiring content, which disappears after a while. This makes sense as a “new” aspect in those networks where the main content, the feed, is shown based on an algorithm that assigns priorities, so that what is seen is no longer linked to when it was published but to the importance that the AI algorithms assign to it in relation to your tastes (personality profile). But on Launchyoo, content is displayed in strictly chronological order, with Re-Posts as the main tool that can bring interesting posts back to life, when the Launchers decide. Therefore, the natural tendency of any photo, audio or video is to disappear from the radar over time (although it will always be recoverable on the walls or in the Feed of the person who published it). Thus, our Personal Album is a space where you can post the content you want to be permanent, always visible on your profile page.
The Album can be a collection of your best moments, of your company’s products, of places where you have been, and an infinite etcetera. You can find it at the bottom of your profile page or that of any Launcher, below the Feed.
There are two ways of adding a photo, video or audio to your Personal Album:
You can delete a file from your Album at any time.
Your Album will always be visible to the rest of the users who visit your profile and it can tell a lot about who you are and what you like.
When tapping at any of the contents within the Album, the post that contains that photo, video or audio will open. This way, the text in the post can give a context. For instance, if you share a nice picture and it’s in your Album, the post could contain an explanation on where it was shot. If it is one of your products you’re placing, the post can talk all about it.
Launchyoo displays the publications in separate walls, allowing easier navigation, focused on your tastes and desires. It is a great innovation in the world of social networks! Thus, the available walls are:
In Your Pics, Videos and Audio Files you can find a chart that describes in detail the target Wall of a post depending on its content.
The walls selection menu is available through an icon in the upper left corner (mobile APP version), or in the left lateral area of the screen, always visible (in the Web version).
On the MIX wall, each post shows, on the top right area, the wall to which it belongs. By clicking on this icon you will go to the wall in question, as an alternative to the abovementioned lateral Menu.
The MIX Wall is “home”, it is the default Wall. You can access it by tapping at the icon in the lower left side of the screen, in the APP’s footer, whereas the rest of the Walls are accessible through the selection Menu.
You can see an explanatory video about the Walls. Click HERE.
And you can tour the Walls:
Various types of profiles coexist in this social network, each with its own characteristics. It is a unique feature which has not been developed by other networks. We want to cover the entire ecosystem of possible users, with your different needs and wishes. Currently available profiles are four:
You will select your profile type during the registration process, through a carousel-type menu.
All profiles share most of the options and settings, but there are some important differences.
Additionally, User profiles can modify the visibility of their real name with four possible settings:
– Friends of friends.
– Nobody (just me).
This is not possible for Influencer, Business and Association type profiles, which will always be public, with their information visible to the rest of the Launchyoo universe.
Your profile type (like anyone’s) is visible to the rest of the launchers through your profile page:
And at the top of your publications, next to your real name (if indicated and visible), once the publication is opened individually (click on the area just to the right of the nickname, on the publication present on a wall or in a group).
Separate Walls will allow you to enjoy the content you like the most, whenever you want. A special place is occupied by the AUDIO&PODCASTS Wall. Launchyoo is the first “generic” social network (which allows you to share any type of content, without focusing on a specific one) with a space dedicated to audio, which in today’s large social networks is often hidden behind videos and images. Here podcasters and broadcasters can flourish, combining the advantages of podcasting platforms and the possibilities of interaction and growth of Social Networks.
The Audio&Podcast Wall presents specific functionalities for the use and enjoyment of audio lovers.
To begin with, anyone who publishes an audio file can incorporate an image, which will act as the cover. Unlike other Walls, which limit the number of characters in the text, here you can write as much as you want, to make yourself known and give context to your voice or your music.
When starting an audio, the dedicated Player docks at the bottom of the screen and allows you to continue browsing the application while listening. It is possible to reduce it to a small progress icon, so that it does not disturb.
Accessing a post, by tapping on the area just below the nickname of the person who published it gives access, through an icon in the upper right corner, to the list of the last six audios that the profile has published, in chronological order. The text that is displayed corresponds to the first line of text in the publication. It is therefore suggested that the title always be written on it.
Some Launchyoo functionalities that improve the reach of audio disseminators (and not only), beyond the Audio&Podcasts Wall:
Launchyoo will display Ads. It is our clear, direct and never under the radar way of making a profit and carrying ahead this project and, together with you, making it grow and improve. But there is a big difference with respect to the management of Ads on other platforms and we want to be clear: within Launchyoo, they will be presented as posts on the walls, interspersed between approximately 6 to 8 normal user posts (the figure varies depending on different factors); thus, our number of Ads is much lower than those we are currently used to. It is important to clarify that, in addition, there will be no other types of advertisements, such as advertising within the videos, pop-ups or other annoying methods.
If you are interested in advertising on Launchyoo, check our page http://promo.launchyoo.com, where you will find all the information you need. And, of course, you can always contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
First of all, we remind you that, in Launchyoo, there are three types of relationship between profiles. Click HERE to learn more.
If both of you are USER-type profiles, the relationship is called “FRIENDSHIP“.
If the profile that you want to add among your contacts is of the INFLUENCER, BUSINESS or ASSOCIATION type, you will be able to follow it. The profile will appear among your contacts as ‘FOLLOWING’.
If you are an INFLUENCER, BUSINESS or ASSOCIATION type profile, you will have profiles (of any of the four types) that follow you, and they will appear as ‘FOLLOWER’. As any of these three types of profiles, you will not be able to establish friendship relationship with USER-type profiles. They, definitely the most numerous, are the ones who will choose to follow you based on the quality of the content you share, and their own tastes.
It may seem complicated at first, but it is really intuitive and allows real relationships between different people, companies and entities, each with different aims when using a social network.
Your status in relation to any Launcher is visible in their profile page (more on your profile page HERE). It appears between Nickname/Real Name/Profile Type and his/her number of contacts.
If it is already one of your contacts, you can read “Following”, “Friends” or “Follower” followed by the time since your contact was confirmed.
In case you are both USER-type profiles and you are not contacts (Friends), you can ask for friendship through the same icon, which will now be a button. The person in question will receive your friendship request and can accept it, deny it or block you.
In the event that the profile in question, which you have visited, is of the INFLUENCER, BUSINESS or ASSOCIATION type, you can follow it if you wish, by pressing the button. You will automatically appear among his or her Followers, and the profile will appear in your “Following” list.
Any of the profiles in your Contacts Menu, whether Friends, Followers or someone you follow (Following) are liable to be removed from the list at any time.
The private messaging functionality of the social network is called Chatyoo and, together with the Walls and Groups, allows you to communicate with whoever you want and the way you want.
In order to chat with someone, it is necessary that he or she (or it, for companies or associations, though there will be a person behind) is a consolidated contact (Friend, Follower or Following, depending on the type of contact). In this way, the risk of spam and unwanted messages is minimized.
All you have to do then is going to the profile page in question. To the left of the profile picture there is the icon that allows you to start the conversation.
The list of all conversations is accessible through the Chatyoo icon in the footer of the App. The page displays conversations in chronological order, and a ‘+’ button grants access to the list of all contacts so you can start a new conversation from there as well.
Messages are ephemeral, they disappear from the servers after 30 days.
In this first version of the functionality it is possible to send text and emojis.
In case of receiving a message while the App is closed, a push notification is received. You can then enter the functionality and find the last chat in chronological order, in the conversations list.
In case of receiving a message while navigating in the platform, an overlay window in the upper area will appear. It will allow direct access to the conversation on Chatyoo.
Walls, Groups and Chatyoo. Choose the one that suits your needs.
Press on the message bullet icon, in the middle of a post, below the text and files (audio, video, or images) that another Launcher or you yourself have shared, to enter your comment. It will be visible to other users. Comments are displayed in chronological order.
You can tag profiles (@), indicate groups (&) and enter hashtags (#) in your comment, just as you can do inside the text of a post.
If someone enters a comment on your post, you will receive an internal notification in the application and, if you have configured it, an external “push” notification as well, which will be shown to you among the notifications on your mobile device.
Moreover, with nested comments you can reply to a comment entered by another user. To do this, click on the red arrow to the right of the comment. In this way, you will reply to whoever wrote the comment you want to reply to. The comment notification will reach both the creator of the post and whoever wrote the comment you are replying to.
Welcome to the new social network, future Launcher! If you are interested in registering an account on Launchyoo and participating in your new social network, where you are the algorithm, we guide you through the steps to follow.
First of all, and although unfortunately it is detrimental to the ease of the process, we have eliminated any option regarding registering through the account of another application. Thus, we guarantee that your data always stays on Launchyoo, in our strongbox. Otherwise, we could not guarantee it!
Therefore, the Launchyoo registration process is manual, filling in the fields.
If you have downloaded the Application from the Google Play Store, from the Apple APP Store or from the Huawey AppGallery, the first time you open it you will arrive at the Login page, from where you can Create a New Account.
From the Desktop version, at www.launchyoo.com you can start the registration procedure (Sign In) or you can Log In to the platform in its Desktop version if you are already a registered member.
In both cases, you can access the registration page, where you can create a new account, your gateway to the world of Launchyoo which opens for you with joy and gratitude. Its appearance is as follows:
You must indicate your nickname, the way in which you will be known within the application. Once inside, on the profile page, you can indicate, if you wish, your real name as well. The nickname cannot contain special characters or spaces. A warning message will let you know if you need to delete a character, as well as the fact that the nickname you have chosen has already been previously selected by another user.
Next, you have to indicate your registration email.
Then, the password you want to use, which you must enter twice to avoid mistakes.
The next step is to choose the type of profile you desire. There are four available:
More information on the types of profiles, HERE.
Once all this is done, you can now click on the ‘Create an account‘ button.
For data security reasons (for us your data is the most important thing), the creation of the account requires another step. After pressing the create account button and confirming you are above 16 years old, we will send you a verification email to the email address you have provided. Please keep an eye, for this email could end up in your SPAM folder.
In this email you will find your verification code and a button indicating CLICK TO ACTIVATE.
Click or tap on it and you will return to Launchyoo, to a window with everything pre-compiled, including the verification code, so that you simply have to click on CREATE ACCOUNT. Doing so will activate it.
Et voilà!, Now you can go to the Login screen, enter email and password and navigate. Don’t forget to say hello once inside!
You can watch an explanatory video about the registration process. Click HERE.
You can create a post and share it through the central icon at the bottom of the screen (APP version) or using the upper writing area (Desktop version). The post creation window allows you to:
Launchyoo determines, based on the length of the text entered and the multimedia files that accompany it, what type of post it is and therefore which Wall it will go to, and will show it to you in the “Post” button with the corresponding icon: Pics, Videos, MiniMes, Audio&Podcasts or Blog&News (and in the near future, Events). Remember, regardless of this, it will always go to the MIX wall as well, which displays all content types.
You can see an explanatory video on how to share a post, click HERE.
Once you have shared the post you can, at any time and if you wish, modify its text. This will be possible by clicking on the icon at the bottom right of your publication, the three horizontal dots […] and then selecting “Edit Post“. A message will warn you of the fact that modifying it will result in the loss of interactions (Like/Love, etc) and comments received up to that moment. With this we avoid that the content of a post that has already received feedback from users can be radically changed.
Everything said above has to do with sharing within the platform. Now, it is possible to share posts outside, to any other application or web page.
To do so from the App version, you just need to tap on the sharing icon, placed in the top right corner of each post.
Once done, you will have access to the Menu that allows selection of the application you cant to share the post to, or to copy the URL in the clipoard.
In the Desktop version, simply click and copy the URL of the post, once inside it, after having clicked on the area under the nickname of the person who has published it, exactly as in the App version. The URL looks like this: https://www.app.launchyoo.com/post/24571 for posts, or like this: https://www.app.launchyoo.com/profile/Launchyoo for profiles (profile page sharing is also possible, same way as already described in case of posts, for both App and Desktop versions). Then, just paste the link wherever you want.
Google searches, SEO, use of backlinks… all this is possible on Launchyoo and can greatly increase web reach if managed properly. As a matter of fact, an unregistered person can visit a post or a profile page and see the content, with some limits linked to data privacy and without the possibility to interact.
This social network can show all menu texts in these three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese. All menus and all functions will be displayed in the language selected in the Settings. The available languages will expand as the social network grows.
When it comes to posts and content in the App, this is certainly not limited to a single language, and we are particularly proud of it. If some of your contacts post in other languages, or if you indicate multilingual personal tags, or if you write posts in more than one language yourself, everything will be considered by Launchyoo and will result in being able to view posts in different languages. As it should be!
If you add the link to an external web page in your post, a preview of that page will be generated. Once you write the link, you’ll have to wait a few seconds for it to load. The appearance of an icon on the right side of the attachments area will let you know that the preview ready. You will be able to see how it will look by tapping on this icon.
You can add more links, but only the first one will generate a preview.
It will always appear at the end of your publication, after the GIF, audiovisual content and text (always in this order) that you may have wanted to include.
Just tap on the preview to visit that web page. But remember to go back to Launchyoo! :).
You can share, with all the members of the network, any post of another Launcher that seems relevant to you. We call it Re-Post or “Re-Launch”. To do this, you just have to click on the post’s Menu icon (three horizontal dots, to the right low corner of the post), which will allow you to select the desired option.
You can write a text that will accompany your Re-Post. The “re-posted” post will go to the MIX Wall, either you did it from any of the Walls or from a Group.
One important thing: any interaction in the form of Like/Love, Yes/No or Stars rating (whatever the chosen option by whoever originally shared the publication was) will be added to those present in the original post. At Launchyoo we believe that it is who originally published the content that could become relevant, the one that deserves to receive people’s feedback, good or bad. Moreover, we display how many times the post has been re-posted. It is also important to add that this social network counts and displays the number of user interactions with any publication: number of Likes, Loves, Yes or No, and Stars.
The re-posts you have made appear in your personal Feed (in your profile) when selecting “See All”, and remember, are only visible in the MIX Wall. More information about the Launchyoo walls is available HERE.
Re-Posts are the perfect way to give life again to posts that are particularly interesting, as they will go back on top of the walls of those who will see them. On a social network which displays information in a chronological order and that does not make use of AI algorithms to decide priorities on what you see, re-posts are one of the best ways of keeping relevant information alive. Because on Launchyoo, it’s you who decide.
If you want to save any of the posts that you find on Launchyoo while browsing through the walls and groups, so as to be able to see it at any later time, you can do so quite simply: by accesing the post menu (three horizontal dots icon) and the selecting “Add to Bookmarks”.
Next, if you access the Saved page from the icon to the left of your photo, on your profile page, you will see the list of all saved posts, in chronological order of publication. There, you can consult them whenever you want and delete them when they no longer serve you.
The web version of Launchyoo (www.app.launchyoo.com) displays, on the right side, a window with suggested profiles, called “Discover“.
Four profiles appear and they change randomly each time the screen is updated. They can be of any type (User, Influencer, Business and Association) indiscriminately, and everything is based on the fact that there are common personal tags (common tastes) or that they are contacts of contacts. None of this data is accessible.
The information visible in this area is the profile photo. By clicking on it, you access their profile page.
Suggested profiles are a great way to break the ice, to start making new contacts, meeting Launchers, and hopefully finding people you know or would like to follow, and making new friends.
You can find the search bar, accessible and at your disposal, with the magnifying glass icon at the top right of the screen, in the APP version, and directly visible at the top, in the Desktop version.
It allows you to find one of these three types of elements:
Profile search is possible through nickname and through real name (or denomination) as well, in order to greatly increase positioning and the ease of being found, if this is desired.
If you do not type any of these icons before the text, you will be looking for any type of element that contains the text you are typing.
The types of contacts with the rest of launchers depend on what type of profile you have chosen when registering. It is very simple and we explain it to you next.
There are two types of possible contacts:
Friends. User profiles have a “Friendship” type relationship with the rest of the profiles of the same type. They can therefore ask any User-type profile for friendship. When the other person agrees, they will be friends on Launchyoo.
Followers. Influencer, Business and Association type profiles will have profiles that follow them (“Followers“, which will be of any of the types of profiles available). You cannot ask a profile to follow you directly, but it will be the person who will decide to do so, based on his or her interests and the quality of what you share as an Influencer, Business or Association.
Click HERE if you want to know more about the types of profiles and why they exist.
Thus, User-type profiles have “Friends” (other User profiles) and “Following” (Influencer, Business and Association profiles that are followed). The number of these appears on the profile page, below the nickname.
It is not possible to access the list of contacts from there, for anyone. Access to the contact list is unique for each person, through the contact page, accessible by taping the icon at the bottom right of the footer of the App, or at the top right in the Desktop version.
If you are an Influencer, Business or Association type profile you have “Followers” (User, Influencer, Business and Association profiles that follow you) and “Following” (Influencer, Business and Association profiles that you follow). For these profiles it is not possible to follow or be friends to User profiles. The main reason is to ensure they will be attracted and end up following them based on the quality of the content that is generated.
The number of contacts that follow you will appear on the profile page, below the nickname. Not so the number of profiles who are followed, in order to prevent dynamics such as “I don’t follow you because you follow few” or “your followers/following numbers are unbalanced”. At Launchyoo it’s not about that, it’s about content and sharing.
It will not be possible for anyone to access the list of followers from the profile page.
You can, at any time, remove a profile from your Friends or Followers/Following list.
Pending requests are shown as such on the contact page.
Therefore, and as a final summary, a User-type profile can access its “Friends” (other User profiles) and “Following” (the rest) lists. The other profiles (Influencer, Business and Association) will be able to access their “Followers” (all types of profiles) and “Following” (other Influencer, Business and Association) lists.
Here you can see a simple graph:
The web version of Launchyoo (www.app.launchyoo.com) displays, on the right side area, a window with the hottest topics on the platform, through the most popular tags, “Trending tags“. The App version displays them in between posts, in the MIX wall.
In this social network, hashtags are of paramount importance, first of all because the indication of your own personal tags helps the platform to acknowledge your own tastes and consequently to show you the most appropriate content. If, for example, one of your personal tags is “nature”, you are more likely to see a post that features this hashtag, than one that doesn’t have any or that has others. Combine this with your different contacts and their types, their temperature, and the languages you know, and you’ll better understand how Launchyoo presents posts to you: it’s always up to you and your choices!
The different hashtags present in the posts on the walls are counted, and those with the highest occurrence are shown in “Trending tags”. The update occurs daily, it is a moving average that takes into account the previous days, so… it is in your power to be a trending topic!
Your profile page allows access to your Feed, either to you or to the rest of the users who will consult it. Your Feed is the chronological list of your posts, on any wall. Here you will also have the option to delete any of them.
The latest publications are visible by side scrolling. To see the rest, click on “See All” to be able to scroll through them vertically. When you have selected to see all posts in the Feed, you will see your Re-Posts as well.
The posts that you have shared in the Groups are not visible in your Feed.
In Launchyoo you can share your pictures, videos and audio files with the community or with the members of a group to which you belong. Your family and friends, or the entire community, are just one click away! Moreover, since here you are the algorithm, and this is felt by way you choose what you want to see and from whom, and by a more serene navigation, the relationships between launchers are more genuine.
You can share any text message, short or long as you want, photos, videos and audio files through the window to create and share a post. The image below corresponds to the menu of the Desktop version for computer. For more information on creating and sharing posts tap HERE.
With regard to videos, when you select the type of file you want to add to your publication, you can choose between content already present on your phone or computer, or to create it on the spot.
If you choose to share a picture, in addition to what just said above you can select GIFs by GHIPY®. You can add one GIF to a post, and it will be displayed always first, above the rest of the content.
The audio files, created with any recording tool, will be selected and incorporated into your publication.
Remember to accompany your posts with hashtags to give them more relevance! At Launchyoo it’s super important because of the Personal Tags.
The content you have shared will be visible wherever you have sent it to, on the Walls and therefore potentially visible to everyone, or in a Group. Arranging posts in chronological order is a hallmark of Launchyoo, and it means that what you’ve shared will be most relevant shortly after you’ve shared it. If the rest of the users will Re-Post it, your publication will gain relevance again. It will be the users themselves who will extend the life of what is shared, if they think it is worth doing so, and not an AI algorithm.
The content you have shared, as long as you did so on the Walls and NOT in a Group, will be visible to anyone who visits your profile page, through your Feed.
As we’ve said, what you share will naturally lose relevance over time. But if there is a photo, video or audio file that is particularly important to you, you can make it permanently visible on your profile page, in particular in your Album. It is your public collection of your best moments, of what you want to be clearly visible on your profile for a thousand possible reasons and that will remain there until you decide to delete it.
In a publication you can include up to 4 images, a video and an audio. Very importantly: depending on what you share, your post will go to one wall or another. Walls allow the creation of ecosystems of launchers that are interested in a particular type of content, so it is important that you be clear about where your publication will go. The share button itself tells you, displaying the icon corresponding to the target wall. Sure, then you have the MIX wall, which mixes all types of content. So how does it work?
In all these cases, the publication will go to the BLOG&NEWS wall. As we said, the ‘POST’ button indicates the wall to which it will go.
Here you have a chart that might help you better understand, should you need it:
Independently to the above’s explanations, your shared post will always go to the MIX wall as well.
GIFS and link previews do not influence the logic behind Wall destination. For example, if you post a short text of less than 25o characters, with a GIF as well, it will still go to MiniMes.
So, you see, there is so potential inside Launchyoo, so many options for you to share what you want with who you want, where and the way you want.
