WHO WE ARE.

swsh is a social app to share your time with your friends - not your followers.
Social media has ditched “social” in exchange for revenue generating “media”. In turn, this has caused Gen-Z to be the loneliest generation - a generation with thousands of followers but no friends. Social media’s overemphasis on “media” has also caused mental health problems, spikes in suicide rates, and a loss of true human connection that we all crave.
We’re building swsh to deepen the connections that matter to you.
We stand for strong integrity: be truthful, honest, and respectful.
We share deep empathy: we’re all humans, be kind.
We lead with authenticity: be you, don’t bullsh*t.
We practice intentionality: thoughtful decisions drive greatness.
We act focused and fast: move like you’re a superhero.

📱 WHAT WE DO.

swsh is a social app to share your time with your friends - not your followers.
Sharing your time can mean things like calendar-powered prompts to discover your friends’ shared availabilities this weekend, a gamified live daily step-count dashboard or how many hours of Taylor Swift you and your best friend listened to last week. swsh powers close friend high engagement with however however you choose to spend your time.
