Smoke and Bacon a Social Media Site For Community
By: Smoke and Bacon
Smoke and Bacon is a veteran-owned social media app that enables people to voice their opinion and share their points of view. While they allow people to be themselves, they solve the issue of divisive topics by having communities. The app's focus on communities lets people join groups that can turn into their online families. There are groups for pirates, family matters, hunting, politics, women's clubs, and more.
Lindsey Saxton was an advocate for creating the book club on the Smoke and Bacon App. The idea came to her during the pandemic, where she rediscovered her love for reading and wanted to share that with others. The app has a huge veteran base. While a book club may not seem like a community that veterans would join, it allowed many to find others who were also interested in reading.
The Smoke and Bacon communities allow users to focus on the things they love. It gives people the freedom to speak about the topics they are passionate about without going off on tangents that can cause arguments. If a user wants to talk about politics, there is a community for that. All political groups can discuss and debate policies, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, or everything in between. Once they leave the political community, the political conversation stops. When they enter another community, like the book community, they can focus on discussing the books that they both love.
The other great thing about communities on the app is the bonds that you can share with people. Lindsey stated, "With the Smoke and Bacon Community, it's more of a one-on-one approach. You get to know people on a more personal level, especially with the involvement with the live streams and a lot of the self-business owners". The focus on meeting people to form genuine bonds draws people to the app. People are looking to form connections. They are looking for people that they can relate to and share with. The app allows you to connect with people who share similar hobbies.
