Company Summary

Until now, social media have ignored real-life gatherings, focusing rather on building extended virtual networks, which have a poor signal to noise ratio, due to their large audiences. YASMO turns this on its head creating communities around real-life meetings (business,university lectures,festivals,holidays etc) & allows users to chat, share & exchange messages, images & docs on-the-go within PRIVATE COMMUNITIES generated at offline gatherings.
