Overview

Spot.IM is building the first “everywhere” social network together with the world's largest media companies (Time Inc., RussiaToday, HuffingtonPost, AOL).

We decrease publishers’ reliance on the giant social aggregators (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.), enabling them to take back ownership of their conversations and reclaim their audience.

Spot.IM takes advantage of the unutilized “commenting” platforms to turn any website into a Social Network.

We are one of the world's fastest growing Social Networks. We’ve maintained hyper growth since launch in October 2015 -- 1,000% month over month. We currently boast 4,200 partner sites, 1.1B monthly page views, and 230M monthly unique users.
