****UPDATE**** The site is on pause for now. Thanks, COVID, you piece of turd. Hopefully the site will be back and better than ever soon. If not, still use it! It’s excellent podcast advertising!
There is a one of a kind site out there that allows social networking some fun again with no ads, no selling. Wanna know where it is? I bet you do.
So you are familiar with podcasting, yes? Well, ykyz.com is kind of like that but a bit better. Microcasting, or microcasts, are almost exactly like podcasts, but microcasts are only 90-seconds long. Built on a system of public-key cryptography, this site is the future of the booming podcast industry with no ads, no data selling, and end-to-end encrypted “Bleats.” Offering completely private channels for group chats and direct messages, ykyz.com cares more about the intellect and much less about the drama.
The entire community is full of people from around the world, creating channels that everyone has questions about but never wants to research. These days, no one wants to talk on the phone, and texting has become our new standard form of communication. Imagine all of the information you want to get to a large number of people quickly, take that info, and shove it into 90-second “bleats.” This allows anyone to ask short questions and get almost immediate quick answers.
Skip the tweets, start your bleats.
Four months ago I would’ve laughed in your face if you told me I’d be creating my own microcast and actually speaking to many about the ups and downs of being a bipolar mom. I hope that ykyz makes it big like the plethora of ad-filled social networks available today. Come join us and bleat! You won’t be disappointed and you’ll probably make some friends.
