The client wanted to create a dedicated social platform where people could create groups with friends and family, socialize with people from their social circle, and share pictures, videos, events, and other stuff to keep in touch with others.
The idea was to build a separate networking platform for family and friends where there would be no distractions and people that use social platforms to stay connected to their family and friends would not end up wasting hours scrolling the feed.
The biggest challenge was probably creating a social networking platform that stands out from other platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook. Although the idea was unique, people would not buy it if the implementation was not done the right way. Thus, we integrated some fantastic features that may not sound such a big deal but are unique and currently unavailable on any other social networking platform except Selah.
Secondly, we showed that the app is only for socializing with family and close friends. No irrelevant influencers, fashion models, or other out-of-context individuals– only those who matter the most!
These are the features that helped Selah become the #1 social networking platform to interact with family and close friends:
As the name suggests, the Family Tree feature helps people find and connect with their family members and relatives. This feature helps people connect with their long-distance relatives. For instance, anyone within the user’s connection can access the family tree to find and connect their family members and relatives using Selah. And yes, you can disable this feature on the app if you don't want to show your family tree to anyone on Selah.
The Family Map feature helps people find their connections' most significant experiences and past events details. It means you can search the users' profiles and access all the past events and celebrations they have made publicly available on the platform, such as birthdays, graduation ceremonies, weddings, traveling, etc. And similar to the family tree, you can disable this feature whenever you want.
The Activity tab is similar to newsfeeds on other social platforms, but it's reserved only for the family. You can share whatever you want with your close ones – like you had dental surgery today, won a football competition, purchased a new phone, got engaged the following weekend, etc., and the people in your network will get an instant notification of the update.
The client initially had an idea to build a dedicated social networking platform where people could interact with their loved ones without any distractions or irrelevant feeds.
We conducted a detailed consultation session with our client to discuss the features and functionalities we can integrate to make the right application and help Selah compete with big names like Instagram and Snapchat.
