Why did you build True?
We wanted to build a social network that was both fun and useful. We wanted to protect our privacy in different ways for different people. We wanted it done automatically with a real unbroken timeline that could be shared in new and intimate ways. Welcome to True.
How do I start?
Just download the app and sign in! It's way better with friends and True will prompt you to add your Facebook friends and others you'll want to invite from your contact list.
After that, just walk through your normal day and correct your visits when you can, True will automatically build the real timeline of your life. Post photos and reviews and use it like any social network.
How do I add my family and friends?
Just look at the top of your Feed for suggested friends or family nearby. Open Friends from the Sidebar to see a complete list or to invite new friends or family from Facebook or your contacts list.
You can search for anyone by tapping on the search bar and you can also add friends from the sidebar or your profile screen at any time.
Friends make True much more interesting, Have Fun!
How does location work in True?
True is a learning system that automatically guesses your location with an algorithm. When you first begin using the product, it will ask you to correct your visits when it's not sure where you are.
We recommend you take the time to correct your visits and add your own places like Home or Office. Over a short period of time, it will learn your places and stop asking as it becomes more accurate.
Taking the time to correct your visits also helps the whole community. If you correct a visit, it helps the next person who visits to get their location right.
We're making huge progress. Our goal is to make this process perfect by crowd-sourcing the location signal.
How does the Feed work?
The Feed shows stories in chronological order like your visits and visits from friends you have followed along with pictures and memories you've posted.
As you walk through your day, True works automatically to build the real timeline of your life based on places you've visited and the routes you took.
Everything in True is searchable, so it's really nice to look back and remember days, routes, places or even whole vacations.
Who can see my location?
It's completely up to you. You can share your location or not at all, or share differently for different people on different schedules and times. You can manage who sees your location or even pause sharing completely in Settings. Try it!
How does privacy work?
You can share with anyone, anyway you like by sorting them into Groups. Sharing to each group can be managed separately. You can create custom privacy settings for any individual place on it's profile screen, including hiding your vists to certain places or even protecting your private places like Home or Office.
You can even be visible during the day but automatically hide your private locations at night or by any time or schedule you want.
