Plip is a new social media app that connect users through their shared space. Instead of using followers and hashtags, content (a plip) is discovered by walking into the location from which it was originally posted. Focused on building a sense of local community and shared experience with the people around you, Plip uses existing social media habits and technology in a new way.
