HowAbout has both chat and messaging to communicate. Chat serves for an ongoing personal conversation where as messaging has many faces in HowAbout.
So when do you use a message?
to share something on your timeline
to contact someone in a circle you joined
to send a message to a company you follow or a contact in your list
to check when your contacts are free using a powwow
to confirm date and time of a powwow
to invite people to a fixed event
to communicate with a group of people who join an event
All messages are found under the same tan except what you posted on your timeline.
Remember the family or company parties where everyone wants to have a group picture so everyone gives his phone to one person and you all have to put on your best face for each picture? That belongs to the past when Event Based Photo-Sharing comes into play : effortless sharing of photo’s from an event with those who joined it and nobody else. It all starts with your invitation and after that it’s just a press of the button. One person takes the picture and everybody has it on their phones.
event based photo-sharing
Auto-events make sure that you don't have to go through all administration to get instant event based photo-sharing. You just need to select your invitees, the rest is taken care of.
Another place where people like to share is their timeline. There have been a lot of privacy issues concerning this. HowAbout offers a timeline that you control. Here is how it works.
In most software a group is just a system for filing. In HowAbout groups are a dynamic tool : you use them all the time, create new ones for an event and delete, rename them or change their composition after.
No matter what kind of message you create, you always add one or more recipients either individually or by using a group. When you post your message or event on your timeline, those are the people who can view it and nobody else. There is an option to select all in which case all your contacts can see that post on your timeline, but not the whole world.
Our calendar doesn't come with coffee but you will be so relax with it, you will get yourself a cup.
To plan an event you need a calendar so we added one. It offers filters you can create to make it easy for you to search your free time and keeps track of your events with an alarm you can set. When you receive a powwow it will automatically mark the dates you are not free.
When you download HowAbout you can use all functions but their capacity is limited.
You can earn your upgrade just by using HowAbout and inviting your friends. Every friend that registers gets you award points.
You also receive points by following companies but remember that you share some of your data and allow them to advertise on your timeline in the process.
In return they offer you tailored news and rewards points.
