Social media brings to mind lots of things.
Some are good: Photos, friends, events and laughter.
Increasingly, some are not very good: Screen addiction, bullying, and online safety.
The jury is out, that some other social media platforms are not created with you in mind. After observing trends in social media, mental health, and technology for years, we think we can do better. A lot better.
When it comes to apps and online experiences, design determines how you, or I, feel about our engagement with the app. We noticed we can influence outcomes such as screen time, online addiction, mental health, and online safety by re-designing a lot of what we think a social media experience could be.
With Ruva, we address major concerns which some other apps ignore. Some other apps were created to keep you addicted, misinformed, and to keep you online as long as possible.
A healthier design will keep you connected to friends, without manipulation, and harmful design elements. See our Humane Design Worksheet online, and click below to see all the areas where Ruva shines.
