In a world where our connection with nature is fading, Voiijer emerges as a revolutionary social media platform designed to rekindle our bond with the natural world. This platform, launched by a team of seasoned explorers and technology experts, is on a mission to unite people through user-generated content and storytelling that highlights true exploration, adventure, and the wonders of the natural world—all from the convenience of your smartphone.
But how is it different from other social media apps like Instagram?
Well, if you’re an adventurer at heart, you’re probably well-acquainted with Instagram, the platform where stunning snapshots and captivating captions reign supreme. But Voiijer is not just another Instagram—it’s the Instagram for adventurers. Kenton Cool, a seasoned mountaineer who has summited Mount Everest 17 times, says, “Voiijer is going to be a lot more of an honest, organic platform.”
Instagram has long been the go-to platform for sharing beautiful photographs, but what are we really sharing? Often, it’s just a glimpse, a curated moment of an adventure. Voiijer, on the other hand, offers a more profound experience. It’s a platform that resonates with those who have a genuine passion for the outdoors, for adventure, and for telling their stories authentically. “Voiijer is going to focus on adventure and nature in a way that we haven’t seen up to now,” adds Cool.
One of the key differentiators between Voiijer and Instagram is the depth of storytelling. While Instagram primarily revolves around photo and video sharing, Voiijer takes storytelling to a whole new level. “You can record notes, you can record locations, you can record scans, and audio and text and everything else,” Cool highlights. In essence, Voiijer offers a toolkit for adventurers to narrate their journeys comprehensively, encompassing every aspect of their experiences, from the highs to the challenges.
“Voiijer allows me to record in real-time. And it’s going to give a much more organic explanation of the journey,” says Cool.
Another striking feature of Voiijer is its ability to capture real-time experiences. Unlike Instagram, where adventurers often have to compile their adventures retrospectively, Voiijer enables them to share the journey as it unfolds. It’s an unfiltered, in-the-moment adventure where the excitement, the challenges, and the triumphs are laid bare. “There’s going to be no glitter spring called posting; it’s going to be in the moment as it unfolds; it’s going to really be blood, sweat, and tears all rolled into one,” adds Cool.
This platform has a basis in education and inspiration, not just random scrolling on an iPhone to look at kooky photographs,” says Dr. Meg Lowman, a global pioneer in forest canopy ecology. Voiijer could become the new way of writing a science research paper, where it is shared with a worldwide audience, not just one classroom in one high school. “
But Voiijer isn’t just about capturing the adventure but preserving it for posterity. “My notebook is going to become redundant because of the power of Voiijer,” Kenton Cool admits. This platform isn’t just a means of sharing—it’s a comprehensive archive of experiences, allowing adventurers to relive their journeys and share them more profoundly and meaningfully.
Lowman adds, “Voiijer can inspire videos, books, and publications about new discoveries when diverse people can easily access this media outlet to share their findings. It eliminates the elitism of scientific publications and, best of all, makes STEM more fun!”
