If you’re a smartphone user, you probably like to send texts, take photos, and perhaps shoot a few videos. And you probably have a different app for each of those things, which you might then share to any one of dozens of social networks. It’s a lot to keep track of, and can quickly clutter up your phone’s real estate.
Pheed, a new social network that launches a web version today with an iPhone app on the way, is attempting to bring all of that piecemeal content creation into one simple platform. On Pheed, you create your own “channel” from which you can share text, photos, videos, voice-notes and audio clips, and live broadcasts. You can get updates from the channels you follow either as-it-happens, like on Facebook’s News Feed, or based on what kind of content it is, such as just photos, or just audio clips.
