On Riposte, we're all about mindfulness, playfulness, and awareness of wellbeing.
Riposte is a simple social media app designed to build mindfulness into your daily routine. Each day you post your “fistpump” and “facepalm” moments, your high and low experiences, which you can share with friends and family. Riposte is a fun way of building awareness of personal wellbeing into your day while keeping up with everyone's news.
On Riposte, we value authentic connections with friends and family.
Riposte provides a safer way to share your experiences, as you can either choose to share your experiences with friends or family, or keep them private. There are also no comments or replies to what you post. This means you can reflect on the high and low moments of your day and express how you feel more authentically and show a bit more vulnerability. You can give your friends and family who follow you a window into what your day was really like and also have a window into the wellbeing of those you care about. You can show support for experiences shared by others and keep up-to-date with their news.
On Riposte, we post with purpose and together we make a difference through data.
Riposte is a unique social media app as the experiences you share contribute to a social database. High-level, anonymous social data is analysed and provided to organisations to help measure wellbeing in communities. When we share our experiences and news on Riposte, not only do we deepen our own personal awareness and connections, we also help contribute data to decision-makers so that they can gain a better awareness of what's going on in their community and measure wellbeing. Together we help organisations make things better for ourselves, our communities, and future generations.
On Riposte, we can see what's trending for groups similar to ourselves and also for groups who are different.
Riposte lets us see the trending topics and trending news for others around us. We can see what’s trending in our town/city, for our age group and by others in our profession or industry. We can also explore what’s trending for others who fall into other groups in our community and gain a wider perspective of what others are experiencing in their lives.
On Riposte, we value our time and are mindful how we spend our time and attention.
While Riposte falls under the social media category, it does not contain any advertising, promoted posts or sponsored content. Riposte has been designed as a simple and fast tool for daily reflection, mindfulness, sharing experiences and supporting friends. You only see posts by who you choose to follow, in the order that those experiences were shared. There are no algorithms distracting you so you can be more in control and mindful about what you consume online. That means you can spend less time scrolling and less time feeling guilty about how much time you spend on social media.
