I rarely watch daytime tv anymore, if anything I have the tv running in the background, keeping me up to date on current events. The other day while filling out job applications and working on my LinkedIn profile, I heard a young man speaking on one of the morning shows. I wasn’t paying attention to what he was was saying, but there was a positive energy in his voice that caught my attention. I turned the volume up, curious to hear what he had to say. His name was Justin Baldoni; he is an actor on the show Jane the Virgin. As an avid fan of Arrow and The Flash, I had heard of the CW show, but I never had the pleasure of watching it. Justin spoke about his family with a passion and energy that was truly contagious. Justin then switched topics and began to enthusiastically speak about a new app named Shout.
Shout is a social app that focuses on positivity. It was cofounded by Justin and Entrepreneur Payam Zamani. Shoutis hard to describe, Shoutis not Twitter, Shoutis not Snapchat, Shout is not Instagram, Shout is simply Shout. Shout focuses on positivity;Shout will boost your ego, Shoutwill help you feel good about yourself and Shoutwill most likely put a large number of psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies out of business. Okay, that last statement may have been a slight exaggeration, none the less, Shout fills a void created by the Tsunami of cyberbullying and negativity that has flooded today’s society.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not telling you that Shout is a must have…. I’m #Shout–ing that Shout is a must have.
You can download #Shout on Shout.gd it is available for IOS and Google play.
P.S. I am writing this article because Justin challenged fellow Shouters to perform a #Randomactofkindness. It is hard to perform a #Randomactkindess from my computer screen. I felt that writing this article, and telling my friends about Shout would be the next closest thing. I will also boost this post via Facebook and pay it out of my own pocket.
