New App ‘Revere’ Helps People Have Better Relationships In the Age of Social Media
Embargoed for release until December 4, 2018 at 7am EDT
Toronto, December 4, 2018 - Revere, the “better relationships app,” officially launches today, the same week the app will be featured in the App Store. Revere is a secure place to put the important (but easily forgotten) details about the people in your life. Whether it’s the name of a new restaurant your partner wanted to check out, your boss’s kids’ names, or how your friends take their coffees.
In a time when we have more social connections than ever before, research shows that loneliness is on the rise. In their seminal work on loneliness, researchers Daniel Perlman and Letitia Peplau define loneliness as “a mismatch between the quantity and quality of the social relationships that we have, and those we want.” Something we can all relate to in the social media age. It’s no wonder Harvard University researchers believe America is in the midst of a loneliness epidemic.
“Great relationships make people healthier and happier, but our idea of what it means to connect has been distorted by social media,” said Mark Rabo, founder of Revere. “We need to spend more time getting to know fewer people. Social media encourages the exact opposite.”
Revere is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store, and will be offered at a 50% promotion rate until December 18 ($4.99 USD).
