Ayman Hariri isn’t an archetypal technology founder. He’s a Lebanese billionaire who is the son of a former Lebanon Prime Minister and half-brother of country’s existing Prime Minister. And currently he is behind one of the newest social media apps liked by all: Vero.
Previous to Vero, founder of Vero Ayman Hariri helped administer his kin’s now-shuttered building business after the 2005 assassination of his father, Rafic Hariri. Hariri inherited his late father’s wealth; his net worth is estimated at $1.33 billion. The circumstance of the company’s termination is causing closer inspection of Hariri’s app, which has become popular apparently overnight.
Launched in 2015 as an option to Facebook plus Instagram, Vero has gained noteworthy fame in the year. It became the trendiest free app in the Apple App Store. Unlike Facebook or Instagram, algorithms aren’t following which posts float up at feed’s top. Users see content in the posted order. There are no ads.
Founder of Vero Ayman Hariri came up with the thought after he noticed his Facebook friends acting fairly another way than they were in the real world. In the real world, you don’t have any audience as you treat dissimilar persons in your life in a different way based on your levels of intimacy. The real, supreme social network that survives is the connection between persons in the real world. Vero wants to imitate that.
To register, Vero users add contacts who have joined the app and allot them labels, such as “friend,” “acquaintance,” “close friend” and “follower.” (Labels aren’t exposed to contacts.) Individuals can share the whole lot from music, links, movies and video and TV clips, book proposition, locations, or images, with these groups.
The founder of Vero Ayman Hariri proclaimed the platform will finally charge subscriptions, but initial 1 million users can use it gratis. Although it isn’t disclosed how much it will cost, he considers generalizing services like this. Vero is quickly approaching the 1 million user verge. Despite its rising reputation, its Apple App Store score is currently low with users whining about its bugs and lag, amid other grievances.
It’s uncertain why the app has become ultra-famous now, but Hariri thinks the footing stems from word-of-mouth crosswise different communities, ranging from Cosplay, photography, musicians, and tattoo fans, which rooted for the platform. Vero introduced the product to these communities, but it did not reimburse those individuals to utilize or endorse it.
