In this age of digital entrepreneurs, there is a social network for almost everything on the Earth. For instance, Codias, which is a network for political conservatives, HoffSpace, an internet fan club, which is created for television star David HasselHoff, and Sermo, a forum for doctors. But do you know what’s trending right now? Well, it is something very different that has nothing to do with anything popular like celebrities, politicians, profession, or anything else. In fact, it is called FishBrain, which is a social network for fishermen.
Yes, you heard it right!
The proud CEO of Fishbrain, Johan Attby, who introduced this very idea in 2011, which was just after he sold his first silicon valley startup. With the spark of this amazing idea in his mind, Attby started researching the most popular hobbies in the world. And, what he discovered was fishing. Fishermen or “Anglers”, as the rest of the population, call them is believed to catch over 60 million of fishes every year. And, you won’t believe, but this company is earning more than $48 billion, which is double the earnings of the streaming music industry.
He believes that social networks like Instagram and Facebook are large, in fact, massive. And, not all your friends can relate to the posts of your interest. So, this is why he created this for Anglers!
Anglers like to share images of their catches with others. So, all these fishermen capture the picture and anglers share it with the world. They can even tag the location of their catch, which will make it visible to all the people who are living in that place.
So, with Fishbrain, you are first asked to provide all your favorite species of fishes and the way you catch them. One of the examples of catching the fishes would be fly-fishing, which many of those anglers out there follows every day. Then, they find the recommended content that matches your posts and location and share something similar to your Facebook’s newsfeed. This is how they provide the content to all the fishermen.
Millions of users with data including weight, lure, species, and different weather parameters are available here on this social network.
Finally, as every fisherman wants to know the latest trends and activities happening in the world, this social network allows every fisherman to check out the latest pictures, videos, and other updates about fishing. And, as the social network tags, every catch that is clicked appears here on this network. So, everyone is always aware of what is going in the fishing world.
Fishermen used this social network to get closer to their passion, which is fishing and knowing thousands of other anglers, that in turn know about them, and understand the experiences of their life, as they share their pictures.
So, those who are still wondering where to get access to Fishbrain, visit the app store and Google Play Store for downloading on your devices and that too for free today.
