About the Plaza App

Plaza is a topic-driven chat app for iOS (iPhone and iPad), powered by location: a Reddit meets Google Maps. Users can chat on topics of interest to you people in your city, or globally. What has been missing from other social platforms is the ability to converse with a broad array of people, by topic, by location. Facebook is great for chatting with your friends, but your friends don't all want to talk in detail on some of your favorite topics. Likewise Twitter you can search or sort on hashtags, but not limit chat to your local city. Chatters on Plaza can be anonymous or not, and post photos and video, and are not restricted by a character limit.


Chat Topics and Times:

To participate, install the Plaza App on your iPhone or iPad device and create a profile. You can post questions in advance, or just join them in the Plaza App at the scheduled time.
