By limiting the amount of posts that people can feature publicly, a person’s public profile will remain simple and current, while their private profile can grow without limit.

Serveboard is a unique, simple, and fun communication tool that allows users to share what they want with who they want. It became available for free download on the iPhone App Store on May 1st.
The primary function of the app is to make sharing and storing media (like photos, videos, and web links) easier and more efficient. Unlike text message or email inboxes, which make it difficult to revisit and manage non-text items, Serveboard bulletin boards are driven by the posts themselves. They are neatly organized in a 3x3 grid layout, which makes revisiting older posts a much quicker experience.
Serveboard offers users five different post type options—photos, videos, web links, drawings, and text. A user is truly able to share just about anything they want, and each post type is displayed in a consistent, polaroid-like format.
Users can direct their posts to specific groups or individuals, which encourages informal yet targeted sharing. The replacement of the traditional “liking” system with a Treasure Chest, a private folder that allows users to save their favorite items.
Users are also given a personal board that enables them to publicly share up to nine posts at one time. The limited nature of these boards makes them easy to maintain, and minimizes the liability of material shared in the past that may no longer be relevant.
By limiting the amount of posts that people can feature publicly, a person’s public profile will remain simple and current, while their private profile can grow without bound. The point is for people to be able to keep up with what friends are reading and doing currently, without creating a long, easily trackable history of activity.
Companies and other content producers can benefit greatly from Serveboard. Twitter often acts as a public inbox for companies to interact and respond to their clients, while Instagram is limited to photos that are difficult for users to re-distribute. Serveboard allows a company to put out actual content, which their followers can distribute to groups or individuals they see fit via the “re-serve” feature. Whereas a retweet on Twitter can be impractical as a mass message, the re-serve feature allows people to distribute to certain people in a more precise fashion.
Serveboard bulletin boards are not only easy to use and unique, but possess features that make them extremely effective at preserving old memories and interactions. With the aforementioned Treasure Chest, users can mark any post to keep for as long as they wish, and with the random board feature, they can revisit sortable posts at random so older items aren’t lost in the shuffle.
The Serveboard team is very excited about the future of their app, and is always available to answer questions.
