Former Facebook insider and Silicon Valley native Chris Adams is hoping he’s got his hands on the next big thing in social media – a new social media app called Thred that brings all your communications and contacts on to one platform, which has been founded by a group of Australians and is due to launch this week.
Mr Adams, who worked as a consultant with Facebook in its early years to launch video on to the network in 2006, is now an executive director of the ASX-listed app startup and says he got the same feeling with Thred as he did when he started working with Facebook.
“I just saw the potential immediately. When you know, you know,” he told The Australian Financial Review.
“Everyone has too many contacts, we use too many apps and at the moment we have to go between search engines, messaging and apps like Uber. It’s too messy and it’s an obvious problem that everyone has that we’re solving ubiquitously.”
