Inspiration

Social media allows a vast amount of information to be disseminated among its users at lightning speed! However, it leads to information overload which in turn has a negative impact on our society. According to a survey conducted, approximately 63% Americans believe that the social media has a negative impact on our society. They say that this is due to the amount of misinformation available and the negativity and harassment they find on social media. That’s why we created Happy so that you can find your happy place online!
