New Saybubble Social Media Platform Encourages the Reporter in Each of Us to Share Location-Based News and Views

Advanced AI Platform Includes Geo-location Services Across Mobile Devices

SAN FRANCISCO — Nov. 16, 2016 — Saybubble, the world’s first mobile AI-based geo-locational social media platform, today announced it is creating a whole new standard of social interaction through its new platform, which provides AI-assisted functionality across geo-locations on all mobile devices. Saybubble is available for free, starting today, at It is also available in the iTunes and Google app stores.


The new platform is architected from the ground up to provide an unparalleled level of user-driven intelligence. It is built on the same breakthrough Python AI software that powers Amazon and Netflix. This new platform is created for the significant segment of social media users who want to elevate their social activities from pure chat to meaningful and useful sharing of local news and lifestyle commentary.


Saybubble is designed to become the new gold standard of mobile social interaction through such user features and benefits as:


  • Bubble Cam Dual Recording: This feature allows users to switch between the selfie and rear-facing camera in the same recording, while allowing the user to add video effects in selfie mode that change their environment. Saybubble will automatically stitch together the front and rear recordings into a cohesive video.
  • Heatmap: Saybubble’s heatmap shows users in real time what is happening around them and in the world for the first time, giving users a visual hotspot on the map where stories and trending events are popping up. Users are able to see both friend and community posts on the map.
  • Bubblegame Level Up: Saybubble gives users XPs (experience points) based on Saybubble usage. The more XPs a user has, the more credible and visible they are on the map.
  • Bubblechat: Saybubble includes an easy chat feature, which allows users to write secure messages to friends, groups or to the public if they choose. They can post media directly to the map from the chat.
  • Media Rich: Saybubble users are only allowed to post to Saybubble’s newsfeed if they attach a photo or video. Users are able to see and experience the world through rich media as a result.


A New Social Environment That Mirrors Today’s Needs and Lifestyles


Saybubble is built entirely in Python, the same modern AI programming language used by Amazon and Netflix. It enables a richer, more efficient model for users to build and manage their social environment. This AI capability then overlays onto a geo-location-based interface, allowing users to navigate around their social universe —locally or half way around the world — within seconds, based on an interactive “world heat map.”


Designed to create a bridge between social chat and professional journalism, Saybubble leverages artificial intelligence to rank and classify content contributors. This content management function allows the best and most accurate posts to rise to the top of a user’s newsfeed.


“I have built Saybubble to be an intelligent way for people to connect,” said Saybubble Founder and CEO Jerome Naidoo. “We’ve made it fully mobile and integrated geo-location, high content curation capabilities and the highest level of privacy for our users. We’ve created the dream social foundation for the future.”


Users can zoom in or out on countries, cities and neighborhoods based on where in the world they want to follow breaking news and events or see what’s happening in a place they’re planning to visit. Users can follow the general feed, the feeds of their friends or the feeds of the companies and organizations they care about—for instance, their hometown or where they went to college—while sharing their own stories with their neighborhood and the world.


“I’m sick of the noise and clutter of traditional social media,” said Scott W., a student at San Francisco State University. “Saybubble’s interactive map and gamification levels make posting fun and engaging—but mostly fun!”


“I’m obsessed with knowing everything that’s going on in my community and city,” added Gloria H., a student at the University of San Francisco. “The problem is that most local news sources are not relevant and not truly local. Saybubble solves both these problems with their interactive ‘Bubble Map’ and ‘Level-Up’ journalism.”


The Smart New Way to Elevate Your Social Experience


Saybubble fills a growing gap between mainstream media and the often-inaccurate information people receive via their social network. Saybubble gives users the ability to engage with current events across a far more sophisticated “theater” than any other social application. It lets people “think globally and act locally” like never before.


The Saybubble platform leverages powerful AI capabilities in a way that no other social media platform has ever done. Through AI, Saybubble brings to its users the most accurate user-driven journalism wherever news is breaking or events are occurring. Leveraging AI, Saybubble users are ranked via LinkedIn, Facebook and Google and receive “experience points” (XPs). The more XPs a Saybubble user has, the more credible and accessible their newsfeeds, the higher up their comments in the thread.
