The Next Big Thing in Social Media this week is not an App

PRLog - Jun. 27, 2014 - PALM COAST, Fla. -- The interns at the Palm Coast, Florida based Office Divvy have created what will be the BIGGEST THING ON SOCIAL MEDIA this week, but it’s not an app - it’s made with paper instead of “made with code".

It is a prop to facilitate IRL, in real life, social engagement called the Social Teller.

Inspired by a children’s origami toy which was popular from 1920s through the 60s, the team of interns transformed what is otherwise known as a “Cootie Catcher” into the Social Teller. Combining both fun and business, it was specifically designed as a prop to be used during in-person social media community gatherings such as Tweetups, Facebook meet-ups, and for global social events – like the ones that will take place on Monday, June 30th during Mashable’s Social Media Day.

“The Social Teller is the perfect prop to use at social events,” says Amanda Vilay, the Florida State University student who developed the concept and designed the original prototype. Amanda also lead the team of local Palm Coast Interns on this project.

“It can be used as an ice breaker to initiate conversations and learn more about one another. It is a surefire way to captivate the attention of event attendees and display the message of social media”

With over a year of development and perfecting, the Social Teller incorporates today’s most popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Sample questions inside the flaps include “Describe yourself in 140 characters or less” and “What are some of your Pinterest boards named?”

Ivana Moore, a high school sophomore who was on the development team, said:

"The teller is a great way to bring social media to the real world with a hands-on activity. It is a fun way to interact with others face-to-face.”

Two days after the release of the website, the Social Teller was already downloaded from far and wide: California to Virginia in the US, and internationally from Lebanon to India.

A total of 7 students worked on this project. To learn about the development team, watch how-to videos, and download the Social Teller, visit http://teller.social ......yes! It's a dot-social extension :)
