The world of social media is all about likes, followers and views. In the race for getting more viewers for your content, traditional social media platforms are leading to higher levels of anxiety and stress among individuals.
Working in the mental healthcare sector, Matutu Nyabangey, the CEO and founder of HoookedUP app, could figure it out that fake persona and fake lives over the web were causing vitriolic problems in the real world. And, this proved to be the catalyst for the newest social media app: HoookedUP.
HoookedUP App: The Story Behind the Idea
Matutu wanted to introduce a platform that relies on fostering real connections among the members of the community, whether connected by proximity of location or preferences and choices. He wanted to create an app that lets users find whatever they need quickly, and effortlessly.
He discussed the idea with Dilip Patel, his close associate for over a decade. Excited by the unique idea of the app, both of them decided to partner on the project and began working on HoookedUP.
Matutu and Dilip had worked on several projects in the past. But, HoookedUp was something entirely different in terms of idea, scale, and investment. Starting with the focus on addressing the real needs of the users, it was quickly becoming a giant all-in-one social media platform. They had to build an in-house team from scratch. They spent a lot of time researching and experimenting with different features that offered enough for their users to keep coming back.
Finally! The years of hard work paid off when the HoookedUP app was launched successfully in November 2019 with astounding success.
