Mobli is a real-time visual platform made up of subject-based channels such as people, places and topics. Mobli allows people to see the world through the eyes of others, in real-time.
Picture this; you're at a concert with really bad seats. You can barely see the stage and instead can only see everyone holding his or her phones up, blocking your view. Well, that's how it all started when Moshiko, CEO of mobli, experienced just that.
Moshiko being his entrepreneurial self, started thinking about what everyone would do with their photos & videos after the concert. Sure, they could show them to a few friends but what if they could also share them with other fans? He thought how cool would it be if he could somehow see from the angle of everyone else who was there. Moshiko thought to himself, how about creating a website and app that would let people do just that? Not just for concerts but also for sports, fashion, news and any other interest. Moshiko realized that by adding specific events and locations others could experience things simultaneously as it happened. These thoughts, developed into mobli.
A Channel is a live feed of a person, place or subject. Any photos or videos posted to the Channel you are Watching will go in your feed. People watch each other's channels. See below to learn about channels.
There are 3 types of channel: People, Places & Subjects.
People: You can Watch other people's channel - friends, celebrities or other people of interest! Mobli is about sharing your view of the world, so that means that any photos or videos posted by that person will go in your feed. You can Watch Moshiko's (the CEO's) Channel to see what is going on with him.
Places: You can see what is happening in specific Places. This means that any location that a user has uploaded photos or videos to, will become a Watchable Channel: for instance, you can Watch the Hudson Channel and you will see a feed of what is happening there as it happens!
Subjects: You can Watch Channels that are topics or events. For example, if your Watching the Cars Channel, in your feed for anything that happens about cars will go in your feed. You can Watch your friend's wedding as an event. Anything photo or video taken at that event will go in your feed.
