1. How does the HobbyTwin app work?
Hint: Watch this explainer video or follow the screenshots below it
How it works Screenshots below:
IT IS SIMPLE:
Step A. Tell us the fun activities you know and/or like doing when free
We will match you with neighbors, classmates, and colleagues, within 10-miles, anywhere you go in the world, who would like to learn/do those activities with you!
Step B. Tell us what you would like to explore or do at least once in your lifetime
We shall match you with other hobbytwins within 10-miles, anywhere in the globe who can mentor you when they are free.
2. How do I add a new hobby and tags for instant matching?
It is simple: Just add a hobby/skill/activity or an instrument name and then start typing the activity name in the app’s “Hobby Tags” field like in the image below (#nospaces) and automatically get at least 5 top-tags already being used by other HobbyTwin users around you! Select those tags for instant matching.
P.S! All the activities under “Tagged Hobbies” (Accessible here and also via the app’s sidebar) have at least 5-top tags each already entered by other hobytwin users so you can just select those tags.
If your hobby activity is not in the list or not found in the system, you can be the first to add it too. Try to ensure the tags you enter relate to the hobby name (use the same tags-extension approach) we have in the list. You can also CHAT US LIVE on this blog and have us add it in the database and to the tagged hobbies list.
3. How about the categories?
The category you select doesn’t matter and as long as you have at least 3 matches we will still match you.
However, try selecting the category you think a hobby belongs to.
E.g. Golfing belongs more to the “Sports” category than t0 the “Outdoors” category.
4. How many matches do I get?
You get as many matches as possible for every skill, within a 10-mile radius, as long as they have joined the hobbytwin network so please encourage as many friends as possible.
5. How far away are my matches?
All matches (Those interested in what you know, and those who can teach/mentor you) are within a 10-mile radius, anywhere you go around the globe.
6. How do I get matches into the same hobby activities I love when I relocate to a new city or College?
It is simple, just click on your profile settings and click on “Detect New Location.” The app will detect your new location, and match you with users who have listed the same hobby skills as either “Teach” or “Learn” hobbies in your area. That is why we introduced common tags in the system.
It will be like you never moved!
For every skill, you can also filter your matches according to Location, age-group, gender, and distance from you.
7. What happens when a hobby match accepts my lesson request?
When a match accepts your lesson request, The following steps happen instantaneously:
a. Both of you are instantly added to each other’s “Twins” list; with the sender of the request as the “student”, and the recipient as the /”teacher”.
b.The system opens a communication channel that allows you to Direct Message (DM) each other.
c. Both of you (teacher and student) get the ability to add each other to groups for a new hobby skill.
d. Both parties can see each other’s posts, and get to like and comment on them.
e. Once you become twins, Any party can invite the other to a lesson that is in their “Teach” skills, as long as it is on the recipients “Learn” skills. See screenshot below:
8. Can I share pics and videos with my twins?
Yes, you can share pictures and even videos while doing the skills you love with your hobbytwin network. However, every share must be related to a skill. The system will be requesting that you select what skill you are posting for, and it must be a skill that already exists on either your “Know/Teach” or “Learn” hobbies list.
9. Does every post have to be related to a skill in my Teach or Learn list?
Yes. Please remember that this is fun skills sharing and learning network hoping that this network will solve the worlds’ free learning and free education problem in 5 years; hence, every post you add has to be related to either a skill you already know/do or would like to find a match to do it with. That is why even the homepage displays what skill that post is related to (See “Hobby Name 1” in the first post on the image below).
9. Can I report and block inappropriate or objectionable content from other users?
Yes. In fact, We encourage users to report any content they find inappropriate or irrelevant to the hobby skill in question.
You can also report any objectionable content, and even block all news/all posts from any user who you feel violates the Terms and Conditions of the HobbyTwin service, OR block all posts/all news from a user whose content displeases you.
Once you report a post, you will no longer see it in your feed, and HobbyTwin support will also get a notification regarding that specific post and take the necessary action. HobbyTwin could either ask the user to take the post down, suspend or ban them from the service altogether.
Hobbytwin is a hobbies and technical fun skills matching & sharing social network. Let us respect it as such and use it for what it was built to address!
We are staunch believers in the saying that “Everyone you meet can teach you something you don’t know.” And “the best teachers are the people we are living with right now.”
Knowing this to be true, why not start with the activities we love?
Let us use this network to learn and explore with our neighbors, classmates, and colleagues towards the discovery of our true passions and talents.
Together we may also find solutions to a lot of other societal issues listed on this website as “HobbyTwin Concepts”.
