"Build a global community that utilizes technology to maximize freedom & incentivizes engagement without violating privacy"
We're going to shake up the current status quo where the vocal minority monopolizes online discussion while disincentivizing the majority from engaging and adding their voices to the conversation. With the use of technology, optimized user experience processes, and familiar graphical choices, we're going to solve the headaches that websites with comments have faced for decades while still allowing them to maintain their integrity when it comes to freedom of speech. We know that while the problems with online dialogue of spam, trolls, bots, vulgarity, fake news, flame wars, cyberbullying, etc. were caused by user behavior, we believe the solution lies in technology and innovation, not hoping that people will change their ways.
Classibridge is a tech company tackling online dialogue and engagement options available to everyday users of online content. Our main product is an online commenting widget called CMMNTZ (pronouned as comments) and the primary customers that Classibridge interacts with are websites that host multiple articles with an active commenting community below the articles.
There are multiple sub-companies that fall under the Classibridge umbrella, of which CMMNTZ is the flagship product. Additionally, there are multiple innovative approaches to our products that differentiate us from our competitors and lead to some truly ground-breaking benefits for our customers.
We do things differently at Classibridge, including our approach to privacy and security for all of our users. We are firm believers in right to privacy as well as freedom of speech, and all of our products and offerings reflect those beliefs.
The genesis for the company came when it became evident to our founder and CEO, AJ Sharma, that the then-current state of discussing society’s problems as well as brainstorming and implementing solutions wasn’t effective.
Classibridge, as well as the CMMNTZ widget, were born out of the idea that technology could do better. Technology could help society grow more inter-connected and stronger, not facilitate the placement of walls and boundaries. That what divides all of us is not fundamental differences in beliefs, but drawbacks in discussion technologies that facilitate finding a middle ground. Even if the extremists and the outliers on all sides aren’t dissuaded from their positions and are the vocal minority, we still believe that technology should assist the silent majority in sound analysis, productive discussions, and bridging their differences to find solutions that work for all.
We were incorporated in July, 2018 and came roaring out of the gate. The company is headquartered in the suburbs of Philadelphia, specifically in Drexel Hill within Delaware County (good ole DelCo).
