Who doesn’t like to show off all the new stuff that they buy? Luckily for those people, there’s now an amazing app for that, PEEPME.
PEEPME is a new social network dedicated to sharing how much money we spend with those following us. Prices are displayed and it’s possible to see exactly how much money a person has spent over time. According to the official press release, some very well known celebrities such as Drake, Scott Disick, Kim Kardashian & Kourtney Kardashian are early adopters on this network. Drake recently posted a picture of his $3.4 million Bugatti and Scott Disick has posted a picture of his brand new Lamborghini, Gucci loafers, Rolex and private jet.
PEEPME resembles Instagram, with five tabs at the bottom. The middle tab is used for posting pictures. People can post their location if they choose, although considering they would be showing off all their money, it might not be the smartest idea.
Each user has peepers and peeping, a similar principle to Instagram, where it’s not mandatory to follow or like posts of users who follow you or like your posts. The top of your profile reveals the total amount of money you’ve spent on the items listed in your profile, presumably linking your worth to how much you’re spending.
Unlike Instagram, PEEPME has a really cool chat feature allowing you to chat in real-time with your friends.
Like many other apps, you can signup for PEEPME using your Facebook account and it’ll automatically use your profile picture and other information to create your PEEPME profile. You can see how many people have viewed your picture as well as receive comments.
So who’s behind this unique app? His name is Zeki Sever. The 23 year old entrepreneur was born in Belgium and has been living in New York for the past 5 years. Zeki first came up with the idea of PEEPME in February 2014, the app was launched on April 28 2014.
We’ll be following PEEPME and update you as we continue to explore its potentials.
You can read the official press release from PEEPME below:
Manhattan, New York/USA November 13, 2014 – As the Internet turns 26 this month, the focus on the power of social media has intensified. Social media is now the number one activity for adults online, and we use social media networking throughout every facet of our lives, including connecting with friends, looking for employment, sharing videos, and more. Now we have a new use for social networking.
Entrepreneur Zeki Sever is proud to announce the new design release of PEEPME .
If you have what it takes, why not show the world? The social network application PEEPME gives people the opportunity to do just that and everybody seems to love it.
PEEPME was created by Zeki Sever of Manhattan, New York on March 22 2014 and it already has more than 300,000 active users. This number is growing every day. Now PEEPME LLC has made the application even better. It has a fresh, clean new interface and some new functionality has been added as well.
PEEPME LLC has structured this application very much on the traditional social media model and the interface is similar to that of Instagram. This means that new users can start posting and peeping right away without having to go through a learning curve.
The new PEEPME design for 2015 succeeds in keeping this winning recipe intact while making the application even more of a pleasure to work with.
Apart from a new minimalist logo the application offers the following:
- A Logon/Signup screen.
- A posting page where you can inform others of what you have bought as well as what you have paid for the article, complete with a picture.
- A profile page that keeps track of the money that you have spent and tells you and other users the total.
- And a chat page where you can connect with other PEEPME users.
What you have and what you choose to buy is very much part of who you are. PEEPME gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself by revealing your buying habits.
Apart from being a welcome addition to the social media landscape this application is also a promotional tool that packs a punch. Seeing a product and the price on PEEPME can lead to a lot of sales.
For some people this application can be used as an ideal tool for showing off. Others may see it as a way of sharing bargains that they may have acquired. Whichever way you look at it , it offers a new and fascinating look of the products out there and of people who buy them. It definitely has the Wow-factor.
Celebrities are role models. We want to know who they are and what they own. We dream about the lives they lead and the stuff they buy. Many people would pay for the opportunity to peek into their treasure chests. With this application you can do that for free.
You can register for PEEPME through your Facebook account or email. Signing up for and using the application may have privacy implications. These are explained on the website at http://www.peep.me.
