Kogan ’98 Creates a “Happier” Social Network

The New York Times featured Nataly Kogan ’98 and her Boston-based start-up “Happier” on its Bits technology blog. On the Happier social network, “No happy moment is too small, and no negativity is allowed.” Kogan told the Times that unlike on Facebook and Twitter, which are so broad that users feel like they have to make a big impression with each post, Happier users can celebrate small moments of joy–a cup of coffee they enjoyed that day, but not necessarily the best latte of their life. Happier’s iPhone app came out in February, and it’s also available through the Web.
