What Is The Fate Of Shapr?

An App deemed, the “Shapr,” has taken the brave (courageous) action of following our resident megalomaniac on Twitter—so, what the heck is a, “Shapr?”

According to them:

“Swipe for 1 minute each day and make the connections you didn’t expect.”

Watch THIS VIDEO for a simpler explanation…

1. The Interesting Thing About Shapr

Many people who embark on trying to find better ways to network etc. have likely encountered the mantra, “Social-Media is like having a publicist in your pocket.”

This is ‘mostly’ untrue because many social-networks are junkyards/wastelands for bloated, over saturated bombardments of, “Sell, sell, sell, buy, buy, buy,” nonsense.

Shapr could shift perceptions on a larger level (and inspire others who may be working on similar services to consider filtering as a necessity vs. trying to get every Tom, Dick, and Harry).

2. The Uninteresting Thing About Shapr

Since they may have developed the first (actual), “Publicist in your Pocket,” type/style of tool, they are doing an amazing job of presenting it in, corporatized-fashion?

Why make an App that essentially kills LinkedIn (potentially Twitter), with strong paradigm shifting possibilities yet, present it in that bland, Apple Inc. culture mannerism?

Our resident Firebrand was quick to point out the one thing that could kill them fast:

Backlash for unfiltered engagement via social-software is nothing new. Everything from Facebook to AirBnb has had its share of foul-ups in this arena. Alongside the obvious, and similar to the (so-called) music-industry, another problem that will either be ignored or remedied is filtering via fact-based merits.

Imagine cesspool marketer behaviors (as sometimes seen at social-media), transferring to Shapr.

While we really aren’t the type of people to do a write-up (per se), we deeply appreciate and respect what all of you here have to contribute and say about our concepts, ideas, and notions, no matter how aligned, bizarre, or frustrating they tend to be at times.

Shapr may one day wakeup to the reality that they are the most widely used tool in the pornographic industries.

Shapr might be the first social-service to go big since Facebook

What is the fate of Shapr??

  1. I have never heard about Shapr before in my life. You guys are sure on the cutting edge. I will follow your blog for sure, great stuff!

    1. Thank-you.

      It’s more so about who comes out from the shadows vs. being about SHAPR itself.

      No one tool will ever be the definitive host of applications beyond a computer or media-center that powers/empowers all the things known and utilized in the tech-world however, now that people have computers in their pockets (more so than 12 years ago), the next liberation will be comfort from old paradigms such as advertising and aggressive salespeople.

      SHAPR displays the potential to push the old methods away and hone in on an exact consideration, action, response culture.

      It could prove healthier on other levels.

  2. Shapr sounds interesting but you definitely have to be careful with whom you agree to meetup with offline. As with all social networks, we all know that there are liars and creeps in the mix.

  3. I’ve yet to see a social media network that makes me meet real, inspiring people. LinkedIn may be the closest I got to top dogs and the literal shakers and movers in the economy. For everything else, nothing out of the ordinary. Not sure how Shapr can change my perception, TBH.

    1. It won’t.

      But, LinkedIn in the same token, isn’t really placing anyone, any closer to rooms of successful overload, anymore than a Tony Robbins seminar would.

      This is what makes a tool like SHAPR out of the norm.

      Is it the right/advanced solution?

      Who knows…

  4. Just another name to saturate an over-saturated industry. Shapr? I think they’re name sounds better on a product like Spanx. But hey, that’s just an idea.

  5. What is with the fate thing? As far as I know this has not been launched yet or am I wrong perhaps. What is the actual product anyway?

  6. I do not even know what this is. An additional info would be nice. Simply put you cannot just expect to barge in and put this on your clients? I need more info.

    1. Facebook and Twitter have been “dead” ‘North American’ technologies for a while. They are junkyards, wastelands, only utilized by opportunists. Check #hashtags like #marketing, #business, or #beatmaker and you’ll quickly understand our statement.

      Now, around the rest of the planet, how does SHAPR contend?

      Who is larger and still operational (fact-based wise) vs. North American app-services?

      Think about it…

    1. These are the guys that raised a couple million to try and wipe out Tinder, essentially. There might be others who are doing even more to quote/unquote, “Shift the paradigms,” ‘so to speak’ that may now get a chance to roar their wares (apps).

  7. So this means it will clears out the marketing tweets if you don’t want it to be posted or to be seen in your dash. I think you should not follow those twitter accounts that do this, or else ignore. The video is not working on me but I am seeing the clear objectives of this site.

  8. This does sound promising to be honest. This will surely go viral in a couple of months, weeks if it’s that good.

  9. I’ve never heard of this app though. I’m sure if it is as good as this article says, then it should be pretty famous soon enough.

  10. This is the first time I read about this app. It looks promising because it is different from Twitter and LinkedIn. Good job!

  11. I think networking gets a bad reputation because it requires a lot of time and effort to build meaningful relationships. As for shapr, i think it is way different from other sites, it made easier for communicating just in a swipe!

  12. “Many people who embark on trying to find better ways to network” What I think that, more app might develop to help people for networking. It might let people more connecting the global.

  13. “Shapr may one day wake up to the reality that they are the most widely used tool in the pornographic industries.” – I didn’t see it this way until you mentioned it! Yep! That’s one way to use the app. I can see the potential. Well, at least there is a sure market for the app.

  14. It does have an interesting concept. I just can’t see the appeal it can have on the general masses yet. Perhaps I should try it out myself to see what it is all about.

  15. A good review about this new app. This is the first time I am hearing about this app and I am not that active in using social media apps like Facebook, Twitter and the more. I just visit them whenever I have the mood. Well, I think it is definitely worth giving a shot. Thanks for sharing this app with us.

  16. I don’t know if this is going to be popular. But I like the name of this app its kind of mysterious so you really have to discover whats inside.

      1. I’m not so sure about that. LinkedIn is still good for making business connections. I don’t see any other competition they have in this space so they pretty much own it unless this Shapr or other comes and knocks them off their throne.

  17. Megalomaniac LOL! Love it! 🙂 The app isn’t necessarily going beyond the stars but I can definitely understand where the Tama compny is envisioning.

    For too long we have been trapped in a non mind lifting, kind of dead space with apps and tools that are realy quite limited.

    We’ve never had interactive softwares that simplify the obvious things that take life further.

    I think that’s a good shift.

  18. You know what? I actually liked this opinion review a lot! It’s like a regular person ranting or raving about the obvious but in read form.

    I’m not bashing or flaming.

    Everyone these days is for the most part how the article described. Look at me, buy me, sell me, tell all your friends, and then what?

    I have never thought to say “cesspool” but accuracy is all in this word choice.

    As for Shapr, I am not sure about it remaining viable but, it is definitely an interesting tool for the videogame communities abroad.

  19. I think it is mostly going to be annoying. I like what u r saying about up n comers working on things like it and better but I just don’t feel its lifting us above the way things are.

  20. I’m surprised but not excited. I mean it is cool but is it evolving the way things are in social networks?
