iPlayer creator announces major new social app

Anthony Rose, the man behind the BBC iPlayer, has launched a new social networking app, 6Tribes.

The new platform enables people to join ‘tribes’ that reflect their lifestyles. Instead of focusing on people’s existing social connections, their 6Tribes brings people together around a shared interest, event or lifestyle, and presents members with feeds that fit their interests.

“6Tribes analyses things like your Facebook likes, the music on your phone and the places you’ve been to, to find the perfect tribes for you,” explains Anthony Rose. “Once you’re a member of a tribe, you can connect with people who get what you’re into, be it fashion or travelling the world – people who understand you. You have a place where you belong.”
