A new social networking app, the Hello App, has been launched in India. Orkut Buyukkokten, the founder of the social network Orkut.com and CEO of Hello Network, Inc., has launched his new social network. This app is built specifically for the new mobile generation seeking to bring people together around their interests to create positive, meaningful, authentic connections.

Through this app, people can easily model the way people pursue their interests and make friends in the real world, debarring the artificial behaviors created by technology affecting connecting and communication. Thusly Hello makes it interesting to discover friendly people who share the same interests, and it facilitates conversation leading to true connections.

“Passions are often the start of our conversations in real life,” said Orkut Buyukkokten. According to him, online networks force people to treat each other totally differently from how they would behave face-to-face. Technology should help us become more understanding, more optimistic, kinder, and better people, and so designed Hello to help users make a connection with the real world. “It’s a social network built on loves not likes, and I’m delighted to say hello to India once again.”

It has been available for a beta test audience in India for the past several months, with users spending around 320 minutes each month on the app as claimed by the company. The top personas among beta users are Bollywood Fan, Cricket Fan, Entrepreneur, Fashion Enthusiast, Fitness Buff, Foodie, Music Fan, Philosopher, Spiritualist, and Techie.

The free app is in the App Store and Google Play and is available for iOS 9 and KitKat for Android.
