MY “AHA” MOMENT
I’ve become increasingly frustrated with Facebook. It’s designed to show more ads, not improve relationships or non-digital life. This led me to explore the problems commonly experienced with Social Media. It’s clear that Facebook's design, behavior, and goals do NOT align with what people want in real life. For my kid’s and future generations we designed a communication platform that values quality face-to-face relationships, less time on devices, and more real-life experiences.

THE BIG IDEA
3 Core problems with Facebook: Privacy, Focus, and User Control.
Lifegaze is Smart Communication, an alternative for those frustrated with social media. The platform is designed to simply manage different relationships in a way that naturally aligns with real life. The platform is structured by life views to enable privacy settings and focus based on context. Channels and threaded conversations further enhance focus while an easy-to-use panel puts users in control.

WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST
Lifegaze simplifies the complexity of life’s communication in one easy-to-use intuitive interface. The design, strategy, and business model enable providing a platform with privacy, focus, and user control as well as ways to monetize without conflicting with consumer interests or values. Additionally it's the foundation to launch industry-specific enterprise platforms to further monetize and grow the platform.

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT
The funds will be utilized to expand in the Great Lakes region.
