Remember Plague, the social sharing app with the slightly off-putting name that picked up some steam at the end of last year? We called it ‘Tinder for information” at the time and marvelled at its rapidly growing user base.
Now it’s had a confusing name change, rebranding as Plag**, and added a nifty new feature – a map that shows how the content you share is spreading across the world.
You can see how it works in the video below, which is accompanied by some appropriately apocalyptic music:
The aim of Plag** remains the same as it was when it originally launched – spreading information virally. When you create a post (some text, an image, a video or a link), it’s shared with the nearest users to you. If they like it, it’s passed on to more users and begins to spread.
It’s somewhat limited given that your posts only go to other Plag** users but could turn out to be a useful tool in seeing what kind of content does well in different parts of the world.
