Youniverse is a platform that uses the power of people like you to find the things you want, need and love and puts you in charge of that process. We’re just getting started and as an early supporter we want you to help shape the direction we take by letting us know which of our ideas you love the most!
The internet is a noisy place. People are constantly SHOUTING FOR ATTENTION. We put up with this because it’s one of the ways that we discover new things to read, or watch, or buy. If you think about it for a moment though, how many of the things that appear in your Facebook news feed or as adverts on a publisher site are actually relevant to you?
Well we’re fed up with the noise. We want to make the internet quieter so we’re building a hub that will cut out the noise and help you discover exciting and relevant content and products at the same time.
We’re not content with turning down the volume in one centralized location though – we want to make sure that you’re getting what you want wherever you go online and that’s why we’re building the world’s first Ad Swapper.
Whilst normal ad blockers remove adverts from your favorite websites, Ad Swapper uses that digital real estate to deliver you more of what you’re interested in – all powered by people like you.
Youniverse is built on our understanding of you. We base that understanding on the non-sensitive, anonymized information that we collect by asking questions that get to the core of what makes you you, and by observing your behaviour on our sites and the sites of our partners.
We use our understanding to match you up with groups of other people that are like you in the different areas of your life. We then share the things the members of these ‘Tribes’ are viewing and buying amongst the other members so that all the right people get to enjoy the right things. Of course no two people are exactly the same and that’s why we put you in charge. You can adjust the size and importance of each of your Tribes producing a feed of content that’s unique to you.
We believe in 100% transparency and we feel that the information you store with us is YOUR information and that’s why we’re working hard to bring you your Youniversal Dashboard – this control panel will enable you to adjust the information that you store with us and control where and how that information is used. We’ll also highlight who else is tracking you and what they’re doing with your information.
