This Social Media App Is the New Instagram for Audio (and Yes, Audio Influencers Are About to Become a Thing)

Listen up! The latest social media craze is upon us, and we can enjoy it even without endless puppy filters–or any visual filters, really.

HearMeOut is the first social media platform to put the focus on audio first, letting users record and upload 42-second voice clips to share on their feed.

This move toward audio might seem regressive at first–after all, television followed radio and not the other way around–but it actually makes a lot of sense. To start, think about the growth of popularity in podcasts over the past few years. HearMeOut–essentially a social feed of mini-podcasts–is poised to capitalize on that trend.
