We wanted to give all our users the possibility to spread information, receive interesting content they would not have searched for, and find like-minded people in unexpected places. And it worked. Plag** developed into a place of experiments, unlikely conversations, fruitful discussions, and surprising insights.
Plag** started out as an experiment. We took the idea of a social network and stripped it of everything that interfered with the flow of information. We set out to bring attention back to the content of a message rather than the status of the person who posted it. Any user should be able to reach an international audience if their content is deemed interesting. They should be able to connect with others all over the world across the arbitrary borders of race, class, established social circles, and nationality that keep us from communicating offline and on other platforms.
