Share Article

Realsome ( – an innovative photo sharing app based on feelings and sentiments that wants to do social good – has launched on iOS this week.

Combining social networking with sentiments and doing social-good is a unique and exciting idea

Founded by Niels van Hove, a Melbourne-based Dutch entrepreneur in partnership with the young app development company Buzinga (, Realsome is taking the next step in the online visual experience and redefines how people engage with social networks and how users share and explore content.

“We recognize that people want to share and explore more about what’s behind a picture,” Niels said. “Where most social networks offer a single ‘like’ option, Realsome gives people a range of feelings to choose from, then tracks and graphs sentiment over time. It also gives an opportunity to create your own menu to browse and explore content based on feelings.”

“Within a crowded marketplace, I believe Realsome has found a sweet spot in visual communication,” said Logan Merrick, co-founder at Buzinga apps and shareholder in Realsome. “Incorporating feelings and sentiments in social networking has huge potential in combination with search and branding.”

Another unique feature of Realsome is that it gives people the opportunity to support social good with a percentage of earnings going to social causes. “The social-good movement is a relatively new and fast growing phenomenon. Combining social networking with sentiments and doing social-good is a unique and exciting idea,” Logan continues.

Realsome has a clear purpose and vision and an exciting roadmap for the future which will redefine user engagement in social networking. “It’s time to get real about social.”
