Hive is new but still awesome!

Hive has been my safe space. Most social media’s tend to trigger me and pick at my insecurities and the things I hate about
society, but hive is made by young people, for young people. I admire the extremely diverse community. I’m ready to see where
hive goes in the future!

good idea, bad execution

i like the app and will continue using it, but it can be better. like, why can’t we scroll through the explore page post by post
or through a profile? and maybe make an explore page with just the text post type posts, that would be cool. i haven’t messaged
anyone or commented anything yet but when i

Best 3 in 1 app

It has the vibes of when Instagram was new and old Twitter with a little bit of MySpace. It’s very positive and thought out, for
the creator and team working on this keep up the good work 👍🏾 because the potential is clear to see. (P.S. you can also put
music on your profile)

I love this app, but the feed is messed up (I only can see a few posts and they all somehow have negative time lol), and a bunch
of other stuff is still questionable.

will be amazing one day!

This app gives me all the FEELS! ✨ It’s essentially the old school IG interface (no frills, reels, crazy stuff) + MySpace
features + Twitter features! IMO it’s kinda the best of all 3 rolled into one. I love the simplicity of it and the easy to use

WARNING - there are definitely some bug

Looking forward to this!

This app has a lot of potential. It is early in its debut. There are only a couple people running this app and once they start
growing, it is going to be huge! Yeah, there are a few bugs but I love the way it is laid out. Wishing Hive Social much success!

A beautiful work in progress

As a seamstress, I’ve always had a rule of never judging a work in progress cause it’s gonna be beautiful in the end(usually).
Same can be said for Hive. Even tho they’ve been around over a year, their recent blow up is gonna cause some issues as the
servers weren’t prepared, probably causing a lot

Great New Social Media App

i’m honestly getting tired of Instagram and using this app feels like a step up to a fresh new start. plus it feel like Tumblr

will be where everyone will be on.

Everything you need in a social app!

I’ve been wanting to make the switch away from Instagram & Facebook and Hive is my way out. It feels way more personal than
other apps and functions as an innovated new app that conjoins multiple concepts of other apps into one. The app is user friendly
and the design is sleek. I am looking forward

Amazing update!!!

Hive proves itself to compete in the latest social media market. The music feature reminds me a lot of MySpace and overall is a

It has potential

I think the app as far as layout is great but I think the real issue that once fixed will make it great is the explore page and
the lack of searching for tags. Once the page is more seamless and and gives more suggestions and I can actually look up tags then
this will be perfect!

Potential to be the best social app!

I love the layout of this app! Great branding and placement for ease of use, it really seems to be about seeing what you want.
My hope for the future of this app is to be able to search for people by username easier and for the ability to link Spotify. (I
know its new and will take time)

it’s a great app. there’s some bugs and kinks that seem like they still need to be worked out, but it came out less than a

The next Instagram

This app is a totally new concept, I see it taking over Instagram. Especially since people are already very unhappy with
instagram. I would describe the layout of this app as like a morph of instagram and Twitter, but better!!! You definitely have to
try it out, a lot of people are already switching

This app is great so far honestly for it to just have launched ! It needs some work for sure but I’m pretty sure once the
