Delhi based social network startup Hubhopper has raised an undisclosed amount of funding. The funds will be used for the improvement of the website and team expansion. They are also planning to research and build on facilitating more user adaptive features to provide further user control.
Hubhopper is a community where users interact and share trending stuff on the Internet, also the website suggests content and lets the users decide if it’s good enough or not. The base on which it works is by giving the user more control over content and create a real time flow of information. Unlike Facebook and other networks, the website allows the users to tune into categories of post by giving them a console like option box and make their homepage feed more intuitive.
Upon signing up, the users are given a control dashboard to set their interests and preferences, what they want to see and how much.
The company is in talks with Indian and Singapore based fund managers to raise further rounds in the coming year. The CEO of the company Gautam Anand quoted, “The next 12 months are extremely exciting for us as we take this platform to the next level and build on our core team.” It will indeed be interesting to see how the indigenous website shapes up in the coming year.
