I'm happy to announce that Convo (https://hiconvo.com) is now generally available. It is still in alpha and some features are missing, but the core functionality is stable 🚀.
In its first release, Convo has two primary features: events and messaging. Convo events make it easy to plan events with real people. You can invite your guests by name or email and they can RSVP in one click without having to create accounts of their own.
Convo also allows you to message with people directly via Convos. A Convo is a layer over email that makes it easy to connect with people by their real names without revealing any personal contact info.
I built Convo in response to my own difficulties with Facebook and other social media platforms. These difficulties range from the practical to the philosophical. Read more on the blog (philosophical part is toward the end): https://blog.hiconvo.com/hello-world
