Does the term ShareChat sound familiar to you? Have you heard about it or ever used it? For most Indians, social media is limited to WhatsApp. Simply put, this is just an Indianized version of WhatsApp which provides content customized for the Indian audience. However, there is a twist as you cannot use it to chat. Right from the good morning and good night messages to funny messages, latest jokes, or videos the user can find a plethora of content on ShareChat.
So, what exactly is ShareChat and how to use it? Here is a small video to help you out!
ShareChat is an Indic language-based social network which has been growing steadily over the last two years, with over 8 million active users around the country. There’s only sharing of content through various groups depending on your interests. Another USP of this app is that it allows only Indian (regional) languages in the content of the messages and videos. It is this feature which made this app an instant success among those who weren’t comfortable with English or wanted mother tongue specific content.
Not unlike its other contemporaries, this app is and can be used by people from remote places to solicit business. Astrologers, plumbers, tailors, carpenters, electricians, beauticians, home chefs and so many other home based, local and regional professionals are able to promote their wares, posting their phone numbers and picking up orders offline with the help of the app.
There is no doubt that this is a very helpful app for the Indian audience. Are you a ShareChat user or do you know any special features we missed? Let us know in the comments!
