Session stories: Why do you use Session?
October 05, 2021 / Alex LintonAnnouncement, Community Contribution, Private messaging
It has been a big year for Session. Since the clock ticked over to midnight and the fireworks lit up the sky on January 1, Session’s community has multiplied 5 times over. More and more people are joining Session every single day — and everyone has their own story. Everyone has their own reason they’re using Session. Their own way that they use it. I use it to talk to my mum, my boss, and my friends. This year, ‘Send it to me on Session’ has become a part of my everyday language. If you’re in the same boat, we want to hear from you!
If you’re using Session, you’re at the forefront of digital privacy. We’re interested to hear why you love Session. Because it’s private? Because you feel safe? Or maybe you just like the colour of the message bubbles. It’s up to you, what you say.
It’s story time! Tell us a tale
We want to hear your stories about Session. That might mean the reasons you like (or love 😍) Session, a specific time you found it useful, the way you use it on the daily, or anything else you want to share with us!
Get in touch
We know better than anyone that there is no one-size-fits-all for contacting someone. So there are a few ways we will be fielding your stories.
1. Talk to us on Session
If you want to share your story in total privacy, Session is the best way to do it (obviously). Simply send a message to Alex (that’s me) on Session. Here is the Session ID: 05a99541db92f4318899aec86e85f5aa66e1e406e8f71b175196f57205d7bcad33
Or you can message Cam using the ONS: Cam
2. Talk to us via DMs Twitter
If you want to keep things on the down low, feel free to share your story via Direct Messages on Twitter. The DMs at @session_app are always open, you can slide in any time.
3. Talk to us on Twitter
If you want to shout your Session love from the rooftops, talk to us on Twitter. You can write your story in a Tweet, and make sure to tag @session_app and use the hashtag #SessionStories
Creating a Session storybook
After we’ve heard from you, we want to share some of your stories. We’re planning to handpick some of the most interesting, unusual, and inspirational stories for use in an upcoming video about the Session community. As is the Session mantra, you will always remain anonymous unless you specify otherwise.
This video will come out in the next couple of months, so keep an eye out!
In the meantime, we look forward to hearing all of the lovely stories from our loyal users. Best of luck, and if you need any help with submitting a story or anything else Session related, you can always get in touch via [email protected].
