Binbine, a new microblogging platform with dual-photo posts is ready launches on Google Play
A mobile start-up project, created by three indie developers from Siberia, offers a new creative genre of dual-image photo sharing. The app has been officially released on Google Play and Amazon Appstore.
The format of Binbine posts (‘bines’)
You’re probably pretty familiar with this format already, indeed you can see such double pictures every day across various social media platforms and meme websites. Posts that consist of two images in unison are usually very popular due to their striking contrast or similarities that they display. However, up until now, there hasn’t been a special platform for this genre.
Bines which include two images, the header and optional captions (all textual elements are optional) give a user dozens of different variants of how to combine two pics into something bigger. You can take a photo of your favorite park during on seasons to show how the changes. You can create some dual-photo stories captured on the street showing some event and its result. You can compare couples bringing their portraits separately onto the left and right photo, or simply post two shots of the same sunset if you can’t choose which one is better. The header (with unlimited number of characters) and the captions below each photo give enormous opportunities for creativity and humor.
Finding cool posts
In addition to the friends’ feed, Binbine has more options to help you discover amazing content and people to follow: the feed of the Best bines – i.e. the ones which receive the most likes, and the News feed which shows the most recently published posts from all around the world in real time. These three different feeds enable users to follow the top binbiners or find those people that seem the most interesting for them, immediately after signing up. The great sharing option allows you to cross-post your ‘diptychs’
Binbine’s Opportunities for Marketing and Brands
In the next versions, we will add Drafts so that users will be able to save incomplete posts and finish them later when they find an appropriate pair for a single photo or figure out a witty caption.
The editing features of the app are not yet presented as photo editing is not the crucial thing for Binbine! Some photos start speaking for themselves when put together. In the next updates, some basic photo editing options will be introduced to help users make their dual-photo posts even more attractive.
