The app is called Sceney Network and is a location-based social network.
Integrated with Facebook, Sceney Network isolates and enhances all of the connecting aspects of Facebook, while disregarding everything else.
The uniqueness of Sceney's platform is the way its geographical aspect is organized, in the form of "Scenes," opposed to the traditional way which is by cities or a general vicinity. Depending on the city, a Scene could be a street, park, strip, neighborhood, campus, loop, district, etc.
Sceney takes the concept of a real-life “Scene” and simulates it in the form of a Feed, a Scene-Feed. “Scenes allow for the platform to be more accurately aligned with a specific user’s social & cultural goals,” says Corey Schottenstein, Creator of Sceney Network.
Version 1.0 already has “Scenes” set up for 32 cities worldwide, with the option to create your own Scene if you’re not in one of those cities. The concept of incorporating Scenes into the social networking environment is currently patent-pending.
Sceney’s trademark phrase, “What’s the Move?” guides a user’s experience. A user’s Move is what they’re doing or where they are and can be thought of as a more trendy & connecting version of the traditional “Check-In.” This phrase, “The Move,” is already one of the most commonly used social-phrases or Hashtags on Twitter, and will now have its own social network.
Sceney is launching just at a time when Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Facebook’s 2014 plans of development & acquisitions is focusing around apps that isolate & enhance different aspects or features of Facebook, such as the Check-in, or in Sceney terms, a “Move.” Additionally, Facebook has also recently showed a desire to connect people in the real world with its new “Nearby Friends” feature they’re set to unveil.
Facebook’s emphasis on building & acquiring stand-alone apps for all of their features was something Corey Schottenstein recognized early on, and in a way, is what he is trying to accomplish with “The Move” concept. In fact, version 1.0 of Sceney requires all users have a Facebook account to login.
Corey Schottenstein concludes, “Facebook is still the trendsetter in the industry, and I feel that between their recent attempts to connect people on their platform who don’t already know each other with Graph Search, connect existing friends in the real world with Nearby Friends, and build stand-alone apps for individual features such as the Check-In, Sceney Network’s mobile app is perfectly aligned with the latest trends!”
