Happier is an app that launched in February aimed to make a community centered around happiness. Nataly Kogan is the founder of the small start up and was inspired by her quest to feel fulfilled. She found that a social network can make you happy and the concept spread pretty quickly. In the short time that it has been available to the public, there are over 100,000 users who have shared over 1 million happy posts.
The app is similar to Twitter and Instagram in terms of feed and brevity. If you like a post you simple hold down the smiley face and spread your positive feelings. Kogan chose this platform because it seems to be, “more personal and less braggy.” Social Networks like Facebook and Twitter gives the user the ability to have an online persona that could be completely different from that offline.
