The content appears as bite-sized summaries aggregated from multiple verified sources that disappears in 10 seconds.
In addition to the feed, users can also search for other users and follow their activities.
Hubhopper was founded in 2015 by Gautam Raj Anand.
Hubhopper launched it’s beta product in December, 2015 as a website and android app.
It’s initial concept was a community based social network that gives users complete control over their feed in real time with the help of a remote, that ensure maximum relevance.
After intensive user testing and feedback, they decided to pivot to a new model where the content on the platform is curated in-house with their original core concept of ‘users having full control over their feed’ still as their mission.
The new product launched in August, 2016.
Appears as side panel that allows you to tune and edit your interests.

The doses are ephemeral in nature and vanish in 10 seconds unless you tap it.

A unique tool that allows a user to convey exactly how much they love a dose.
