Despite the many benefits, social media and social networking bring some fundamental challenges; for example...
"Comparison is the thief of joy" ~ Theodore Roosevelt
There's a growing awareness that spending less time online can increase our personal health and wellbeing – make us more present to our physical surroundings.
Now is the perfect time to explore a different way... a values-led approach to social media, based on 'real life' not 'best life'.
To ask questions like...
We asked a few people this question...
"MakeLifeClick is reimagining social media, based on 'real life' not 'best life'.
Our vision is to grow a global, values-led social and business network, to serve and benefit the wellbeing of all.
Established upon a foundation of trust and accountability, we will become a 'social centre-point' – a co-operative connecting a network of people and partners who are committed to making a difference to people's wellbeing, both online and offline."
To promote and celebrate real life through social media, with human wellbeing as our highest priority.
MakeLifeClick is built on seven core values...
"I look forward to going online in a way that I haven't previously. I have loved contributing. I have loved and benefited from the contributions of others."
"It is such an uplifting and encouraging space and it has made me think about all sorts of things more deeply."
"I like the saying "don't be the best, just be better than yesterday" and I think MLC has helped me to do that."
MakeLifeClick is a place for anyone and everyone wanting to be part of positive change in the world of social media and social networking!
Every person will:
Submit your info below to confirm interest in having access to the app in May. We'll keep you updated via email.
It goes without saying we'll never share your info and you can always unsubscribe at any time :-)
MakeLifeClick was started by Tim Jameson, with the encouragement of many people! Connect with Tim on LinkedIn.
Trust is central to everything MakeLifeClick stands for.
We're backed by Make Life Click CIC (a 'Community Interest Company'). This means we're closely regulated and must produce an annual report describing the ways in which we're living our purpose and benefitting the community. This will be freely available on the public record / internet.
The community is steered by a small collective of people with accountability for ensuring MakeLifeClick remains true to its vision, values and ethos.
Join the community to meet the team!
As with phase 1 of the pilot, a unique invite code will be required to create an account. These will be freely available to anyone who wishes to take part, provided they're over 18 years of age and in agreement with the community's values and terms.
The phase 2 pilot will run from May – August 2021.
Yes, absolutely! Please talk about MakeLifeClick with your family, friends and colleagues, and post about us on your other social networks, being sure to include the #MakeLifeClick hashtag.
The only proviso is everyone will have to register their interest to be part of the phase 2 pilot. This includes being over 18 years of age, and in agreement with the community's values and terms.
There'll be a number of ways to get involved and contribute, for example...
There's no set expectation, other than to have fun, encourage others and enjoy expressing real life together!
Social groups for the phase 2 pilot will be confirmed soon...
Yes – a desktop version of the community will be available alongside the app.
The phase 2 pilot is completely free of charge. Our sole priority is ensuring you're part of it, and that you benefit greatly!
Longer-term, we can't deny that growing the community will need funding, especially in terms of the underlying technical infrastructure. We'd also love the opportunity to e.g. provide people with subsidised access to wellbeing and other partner services.
We'll discuss this as a community, to get thoughts and feedback on where to go next.
