Since we’ve launched Panelio.me last November, we’ve been fielding questions from good folks who stumble upon our website or even those who have already downloaded our app: is Panelio.me a social network?
The short answer is ‘No’, but let us explain a bit more…
In a completely unscientific poll of current Panelio.me users, about two thirds of them agreed that “it’s a positive quality” that Panelio.me is not a social network. A number of potential Panelio.me members declined to download the app based on their perception that Panelio.me is “a social network” and that they felt “they couldn’t handle another social network.”
It’s important to get it out there that creating yet another social network was never our intention. While Panelio.me users can socialize if they wish to do so, the application clearly favors collaboration and boosting productivity over sharing, reacting, and commenting.
