Profiles are meant to capture who we are and act as our first impression when it comes to meeting new people. Traditionally, profiles have been built on pictures and text, which fall short in both capturing someone's rounded personality and humanizing each individual. Ponder seeks to change that by allowing users to build profiles by answering personal questions through video. During the session, we will talk about the history of meeting people online, including our personal experiences; the profile and why it doesn't work; and why video is a better way.

  • Company Description Ponder is a better way for people to capture their personality and get a sense for who someone is before they meet. Video is a much more personal and expressive medium that allows your personality to come through in a more natural way. We're looking to humanize the process of meeting people online.
