Cosmunity is the brand new social network for people to express their inner geek. Users who join can share their crafts (cosplay, comics, art) to those with similar interests.
Similar to Facebook or Twitter, users will be allow to create their own profile and upload content under their name allow users the option to Like or Comment. One of the many features within Cosmunity is the ability to allow retailers to sell goods such as art, props, comics and collectibles.
One of the big things that makes Cosmunity a unique experience is that this is a social media network catered to fellow gamers, cosplayers, collectors, etc… With options like peer-to-peer selling and the ability to connect directly with other’s in your field and influencers, Cosmunity is your perfect on-the-go mobile fan convention.
I spoke with Ming Chen, of Comic Book Men, regarding the new app and how beneficial it’s been as a frequent convention goer,
” I went to 34 cons last year. I have done cons for 3 years since Comic Book Men started. I’m pretty close to 100. Nowadays if i have a con coming up, I go to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, there’s a whole social media arsenal you have to work with. The thing about Facebook or Twitter is if you say you are going to a con, the people who are going will see it but the others won’t really care. The thing about Cosmunity, those updates are for them. The events section is great, I know you have been to a few shows and they’ll have their guide books they hand out in the beginning or their apps and it’s still hard to figure out what’s going on. To be honest, I’ll be a guest at a con and sometimes still won’t know what my panels are. If you are a fan of the show or want to come hang out and chat with me, it’s cool that I can directly tell people where I’m going to be and when. That is what this application provides. The focus is really great. The timeline/feed, I like to post whatever I am doing convention wise, show wise, podcast wise or life in general. The thing about Cosmunity, I will try to keep it more focused on geek and pop culture.”
