Get off your screen and into the moment with Socialvite.

 
 

Socialvite was created as a means to provide a streamlined social network experience, getting people away from the "junk food" of social media such as algorithmic walls, likes, views, and other social media statistics that distract from actually connecting with your community. We're building on a movement of an increasingly on-the-go generation.
