Orkut founder and ex-Google engineer, Orkut Büyükkökten has launched another social media networking website called ‘Hello’ to connect people around the world.
With Facebook fans being furious after Cambridge Analytica incident that revealed the data collection of 85 million Facebook Profiles without their consent, users have started #DeleteFacebook campaign to show their frustration.
This in fact paved way for the introduction of a new social networking website Hello to connect with people across the world. Before the existence of Facebook, there was an extraordinary online social networking platform ‘Orkut’ having a community of over 300 million people.
Even though Orkut did well to survive while competing against Facebook, it was discontinued later by Google and so the website saw its end on September 30, 2014. Until today, it has revived once again by its founder aiming to give Facebook a tough time.
What’s Hello About?
Hello is a social media platform that helps you connect people around their passion and interest. This is something unique as it allows you to make friends from around the world having similar interest, expression for love, and meaning in their life.
Currently, it employs a team of 20 people who are continuously changing the idea of how the world does social. The ‘Like’ button is replaced by ‘Love’ icon, and users can select their interest from tons of options laid on their profile. You get feeds from people around the world that matches your persona. Hello is available for Android and iOS.
Availability in Countries
Unfortunately, Hello is available in only 14 countries. We list down the countries where Hello is available:
|7||Isle of Man|
If your country isn’t available on the list above, then its probably the app isn’t available in your country. How unfortunate would it be to miss all the fun, and most importantly miss the chance to connect with people around the world?
Don’t let that happen! Use the Hello app from any country you belong, with the help of a VPN. Hello has geographical restrictions on its app. Meaning, you cannot install the app from Play Store or Apple Store if you’re not in the list of countries it targets. You will receive an error saying ‘This app isn’t available in your country’.
With a VPN, you could change your geographical location which would allow you to install the Hello app from your original location.
