AUSTIN (KXAN) - A Boston start-up called Happier - a self-described happiness company - has created a social network to filter out the negativity from your online life. A place to post what might seem too trivial to post on other social media sites.
Happier is a place for photos, status updates and things that just make its users happy. The site encourages users to share "Today's moments" such as the long jogs, healthy food and pictures of pets that saturate the site's feed. Once you post, users are can respond with an encouraging comment - including polite grammar corrections .
There aren't any prerequisites to join, nor do you have to agree to a happiness clause - although there does seem to be a unspoken, self-policing agreement among users to keep interactions positive.
