Steph Curry Launches New Social Media Platform Aimed At Filtering Out The Internet Trolls
Golden State Warriors G Stephen Curry is an absolute terror on the basketball court for opposing defenses, off the court he’s launching a new social media platform aimed at filtering out the internet trolls among other things.
There’s a bunch of athletes that don’t really utilize social media and interact with the fans, because they either don’t have the time or they don’t feel like seeing the trolls that bombard their mentions with troll comments.
NBA superstar Stephen Curry has launched his own startup aimed at helping athletes optimize their social media channels and engage more efficiently with fans:
The California-based company, named Slyce, promises to improve the way athletes and other influential people engage with their followers on social media by making it more organized and filtering out much of the noise.
The platform integrates with Facebook and Twitter and acts as an intermediary between athletes and their fans by sifting through inbound traffic in order to filter out the most relevant interactions.
Barr(Former NIKE employee) came up with the premise for the platform after noting that Curry’s social media activity had begun to slide as he gained more followers on social media.
According to Barr when he questioned Curry about his waning social media activity he admitted that it was “mostly just a pain in the butt.”
He said Curry found it “too much of a hassle and there were too many pain points to make it worth his time to actually engage with fans in unique and authentic ways.”
Bar says Slyce works to address this problem by providing them with the “most contextually-relevant and appropriate questions.”
