Current social networks are good for sharing media and showing what you like, but having actual conversations on the subject beyond commenting is impossible and interaction is shallow, they just aren’t built for that. Your feed is usually limited by your social circle of friends, and meeting new people or making new friends outside of that can be difficult. Also, some apps provide a way to discover and track local events and people nearby, but they don't provide real-time group chatting.
HiveUp is a platform/app where users can interact in any channel of their choosing. There are user profiles, instant messaging & friending to provide social networking. HiveUp brings together not just the people you already know, but everyone who share common interests to meet, discuss and share. Channels are created by the users who name and tag them after which they are promoted to others through recommendation which is based on user-set interests, learning model and also on location & friends.
