Vancouver, British Columbia: Hello Pal International Inc. (“Hello Pal” or the “Company”) provider of rapidly growing international social messaging, travel and language learning mobile apps is pleased to announce that it has released its Moments feature on both Hello Pal and Travel Pal.
The Moments feature allows users to share ‘moments’ of their lives, in the form of pictures, short videos, audio and text, with other users on the platform. Users are now able to express themselves more easily and to the world at large through just a single post, and have other users react and comment on it together.
“In keeping with our mission of bringing the world closer together, our new Moments feature lets users gain a deeper insight into the lives of others all over the world without the need necessarily start a chat,” said K.L. Wong, Founder and CEO of the Company. “Moments also give us a public forum that fosters a deeper sense of community.”
Moments postings are categorized by location, language and category type, so a ‘foodie’ in Seattle, for example, can easily see what Korean food looks like, simply by filtering by location (“Korea”) and Category type (“Food and Drinks”).
Moments is an important part of Hello Pal’s monetization strategy, allowing increased opportunities for targeted sponsored posts. “I’m happy to see the Company proceeding according to plan for monetization. Features similar to Hello Pal’s Moments are certainly part of the current trend with mobile apps, as shown in popular apps such as WeChat and Instagram, and will be vital for the Company’s future revenue prospects,” said Hans Xu, a key senior partner of the New Margin Fund based in Hangzhou, China, as well as one of Hello Pals largest shareholders.
