Tawkers.com as a Home of Real Discussion
New chat platform Tawkers.com bills itself as a home for intense debate and meaningful online discussion. To wit, they're hosting chats, almost text lectures, to boost the site's visibility and quality of discourse.
New York, NY (I-Newswire) December 9, 2013 - It's not hard to find places on the internet in which to have a discussion. There are chat rooms and forums, instant messaging services and social media sites, general and specific interest gathering places. What proves to be difficult is finding a place for honest, important conversations.
Enter, then, Tawkers.com, a new social platform and the brainchild of former Apple consultant Blake Ian. The basic format of the site is really quite simple. It's a public instant message conversation between two people. Anyone can see the conversation and become involved if they so choose. What's interesting about it is that there is a second window, what the site calls the forum. Other Tawkers, or users, can chat amongst themselves here. But it grows more interesting yet. What separates this from a conversation and a stream of audience consciousness is participation. If the users in the forum find a comment edifying, then can up-vote it and bring it to the attention of the Hosts. Hosts can Spotlight a comment, bringing it permanently into the main body of the Tawk for everyone to see.
As part of the site's launch, they've cultivated a team of "Resident Tawkers," a group of Hosts from a wide array of backgrounds. Included are students of psychology, capitalists-turned-activists, comedians, and musicians. The list goes on and on. What makes Tawkers an interesting place is the kind of content they are promoting in their online discussions. They have Tawks with useful and relevant titles, like "Navigating Obamacare Misconceptions" and "Who Cares About Foreign Policy?" Both elevate a simple conversation into an informative and edifying experience. When the site makes critical mass and people begin pouring in, there may be more everyday conversations taking place on the website, but, for now, the content is definitely skewed towards sincere and meaningful chatter.
In support of the ideal set forth by the creators of Tawkers, they have a mission statement that clearly defines the objective of the discussion forum website: "Our mission with Tawkers is to provide a real home for meaningful discussion on the internet." Everything about the site design supports that statement.
