Teens Help Push Pheed to Top of App Store

on Tuesday, Feb. 26th

If you haven’t heard of Pheed yet, it’s probably because you’re not around my age (21) or younger.

After creating an account I realized Pheed was “thee” social network of social networks, possessing the qualities I love about Twitter, Tumblr, Soundcloud, and Instagram all in one. It even allows users to create a pay-per-view-type show that they can charge audiences to watch. While scanning Twitter yesterday, I saw that The Game tweeted a link to his Pheed channel. My jaw hit the ground when I found out that Pheed was at the top of the Apple charts for social networking apps, even beating out Facebook and Twitter.

Although it’s been out for half a year, Pheed just spiked about a week ago thanks to help from popular teens like Acacia Brinley (who?!?!) whose tweet “@Pheed sickest app,” sent thousands of teens to create their own channels. I have been ranting for quite some time now about how Facebook is becoming the preferred social media platform of my parents’ generation. With Pheed’s emergence, we finally have another one to claim as our own.
