Our Story

In 2012,

the founders of hOp saw early indications that Social Media was creating digital isolation and loneliness. They decided to build a new type of social network based on proximity awareness and quietly spent a few years researching the impact of technology on community. After a lot of fails, we produced a series of patents and our first generation #IRL networks.
