Social Storytelling Platform Narr8r Launches

Share Article

Canadian startup Narr8r launches an augmented reality social storytelling platform that allows users to collaborate using rich media. Narr8r stories combine text, photos, videos, recordings, location, even music tracks to tell the whole story, on mobile and web. Stories can be linked one to another allowing for social networks to form around a location, event or theme.

Narr8r is to story, what other social networks are to people.

At the heart of Narr8r is ‘linkage’. Narr8rs connect with others at the Eiffel Tower, at a wedding, a concert, party or even at a protest. Users form ad hoc social networks in real time, around the stories that matter in their lives. With autoplay users take guided tours, curate walks in their neighborhoods, or listen to where friends pinned music in augmented reality … all without ever taking their phones out of their pockets.

Whether a band releasing gig locations, a movement getting the word out, an author revealing research, a parent recording first steps, a chef sharing a favorite recipe, a visitor discovering a new hotspot, a bride on her wedding day, a traveler on the trip of a lifetime, or a boyfriend leaving a secret message at the bus-stop, Narr8r is a whole new way to create, link, and share stories on mobile and web.

“In Narr8r we wanted to create a platform not only for collaboration, but also for social good," says founder Michael Stewart. "Social media has a ‘social’ responsibility. Every year, Narr8r will donate 2% of its revenue to charities selected by fellow Narr8rs. We’re committing a minimum of $5,000 to support choices in 2012.”
