The Yubo App: A Place where GEN Z Values are Accessed and Supported
Conversations about identity and culture have become much more accessible and active in the digital age. From social media to mobile apps, Generation Zers embrace digital technology to take care of business. But, as they put it themselves, they’re still figuring out how to use it. They’re also more open to new ideas and approaches than their parents are. This social media application allows users to connect with like-minded Gen Zers of various ages, backgrounds, and interests. It’s a place where Gen Zers can find support for their goods and make visible their yubo-like characteristics (e.g., being a stoner). A discussion about Yubo values, on the other hand, is something Gen Zers can only expect from a place like GEN Zers. Yubo is where Gen Zers can find support and shape their future, regardless of their social and professional aspirations.
What makes it great?
One of the unique things about this app is the vast range of users—a combination of young and old. This means that the users of this place are people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. It is also the first place that I’ve heard of a place where every age group is represented. Another unique thing about Yubo is that it allows members to “tag” others on social media.
It is for all Gen Zeros.
While members’ social media platforms vary in their approach to social justice, most of them tend to focus on the need for diversity and inclusion. But in a place like this, everyone is treated as a fellow human. Diversity and inclusion are the core of inclusion, which is why everything from language to cultural backgrounds and interests is represented. You also see it in how people feel about their place in the world and their future priorities.
It’s easy to get emotionally invested in social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+. The results are almost always great—for the medium and the person doing the posting. It’s always better to wait and see what happens, take some time, and see if there is anything you can do to make your social media platform a more prosperous place for you and your family.
