Blewbury is a community media app - a social network hosted, owned, and run by the community of Blewbury, Oxfordshire - for the local community.
It offers many of the features users of social media will be familiar with:
- a news feed; into which selected local groups can publish and anyone can share and comment
- a community wall; onto which anyone can post
- direct friend-to-friend messaging
- links to local business, groups and audio/ video content, an events list... and more to come
The aim is to bring together much of the content that currently exists into one place.
The app is powered by a UK company called Disciple Media, which also hosts communities for health secretary Matt Hancock, musicians such as The Rolling Stones, and a growing number of niche publishers.
Free to download and free to use, the app is hosted and funded by Blewbury resident Matt Phillips.
This release has tons of changes, such as the ability to reply to and like comments and the new bottom navigation.
