Untappd is a popular social media platform where people are able to share what beers they’re drinking, offer reviews to beers they’ve had in the past and “cheers” what other people are drinking.
It’s a great place to find new beers to enjoy and also a check out what drinks your friends have recently been having as it’s not all that natural to just text your friends saying “I’ve just had a Birra Moretti, it was great” every time you have a beer.
But on Untappd, that’s what everybody wants to hear!
4 – Foodspotting (iOS)
Not too dissimilar to Untappd, Foodspotting is an App where you can share when you eat food, what you’ve eaten and also write a little review to recommend the place to your friends.
You can also attach images to your posts and, let’s be honest, it’d be better for foodies to have a place where they can share things they love with people who also love food.
That saves foodies getting those passive aggressive comments from people, on other social media platforms, who just don’t care!
3 – iTrucking (Android/iOS)
iTrucking is exactly what you’d expect it to be just by reading the title; used primarily for finding trucking jobs, this new App is a great way for truckers – or just those with an interest – to socialise with each other online.
It’s also a hotspot for checking out trucking related news and a great way to chat with other truckers and check out job listings – overall it’s a good way to stay updated on all things in the trucking industry.
2 – Ravelry (Android)
Ravelry isn’t something you’d imagine is all that popular; it’s a community for people who like to knit but it has an impressive number of registered users – a figure over 6,000,000!
It’s a great place for everyone who is interested in crochet, knitting or even just impressive designs made by people with a genuine skill in arts and craft.
The community is quite positive, with most people using the platform to share their creations and offer compliments on those of other people.
1 – SoundCloud (Android/iOS/Windows)
Now you’ve probably heard of SoundCloud before but never really considered it beyond listening to the odd song, when it’s unavailable on YouTube or Spotify.
It’s actually rife with community conversation – if you get involved and follow some of the great artists on there you can find yourself chatting with other lovers of music and you may even discover some new artists along the way.
This is also invaluable to video and audio editors, as often a lot of artists on SoundCloud are happy to provide music with just the exposure in return.
