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.

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.
