Hi everyone! Pepo is currently preparing for a new version, in which we will automatically create channels for all users - making it easy to share local tips and experiences.
If you want your existing channel to be your default channel (so we would like not create a new one for you), please leave a comment or send me a message.

More updates coming soon 👍

Pepo is more fun with friends! We encourage you to share your channel with the world! Click the share icon at top right in your channel or alongside every post and you can easily share it to Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, by text message, by email to your friends, and more! Also, follow interesting people on Pepo so they’ll check out your channel.

Do you have Twitter? If so, reply here with your Twitter handle and I’ll manually connect it to your account. This will help grow awareness of your Pepo Channel, and auto-populate your Twitter handle when you or others share your posts from Pepo to Twitter.

We recommend that you start with at least 3 to 4 posts introducing yourself and your channel and set the tone for what your Pepo channel is all about.

You can post text, photos, videos, and short live Spotlights (click the circle icon at bottom right in the blue bar in your channel to try this). You can also tag every post with a location and a custom emoji -- this is highly recommended!

They key is to make the content in your Pepo channel unique and informative. The best Pepo channels provide tips, advice and experiences that cannot be found on other social media. We recommend you post more detailed descriptions and advice than on Instagram. Make your posts a bit longer and more informative than Tweets. Think about Pepo as shorter than a blog, but more informative than a Tweet or an Instagram photo.

We have found that Pepo users most appreciate insider tips and advice that they cannot find elsewhere. Share your expertise!

Tap on the cover image inside your channel to change the settings.
A. Choose a title that people will find when searching.
B. Choose a creative cover image. Make sure to not have any text in your cover image.
C. Add an informative description.
D. Add Tags. This is very important so that people can find your channel.
E. Set Location. If your channel is about a specific city or country, make sure to set the channel location.
F. Set moderation and Q&A options, by deciding who can post directly into the channel. By default anyone can post. Change this setting to “Only the Hosts” if you want to make yourself the primary contributor and to require guest posts and questions to be reviewed by you before they are accepted into your channel. We recommend changing the setting to “Only the Hosts” if you want to control the flow of content.

I'm struggling a bit with the Location, I often can't find the place I'm looking for when I'm posting. Any improvement on this on the horizon? Or maybe it's just Barcelona that's weird locationwise, haha 😊 Very happy with everything else though, and thank you guys for all your support!
Hi Maria! Thank you for the feedback!
The best way to find a specific location is to search for it's name and add the city at the end of your query 🌐 We will work on improving the overall location tagging experience soon!

You can also reach out to me directly, if you need any help on a specific location. Locations can always be added after creation of the post itself 😊
Great, thank you for your answer and support! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Any chance you'll be adding filters for videos in the future? 😊
Hey Barcelona Food Experience thanks for the awesome 💡 Maria! We can implement this fairly easily. We'll work on it! Cc: Swaminathan Jayaraman & Sunil Khedar

Is there an optimal time or times to post in the channel? Maybe something like when users are most active/most online users. Thanks in advance!
My advice would be to post in the morning your local time, as it would then reach the most of your followers throughout the day. Adding a second post in the afternoon would also increase the chances of catching your followers attention 👍

Hi all!

The new app version is now available on both App Store and Google Play Store. This is a very significant update with many feature enhancements and fixes:

- Smart Filters at the top of every channel to show relevant information and increase the engagement levels for current users:
a) Trending Posts - up to 25 posts are carefully selected by our smart algorithms to show what has been recently popular in the channel;
b) My Posts - shows all of the posts user has interacted with (posted/reacted/replied);
c) Q&A - shows all Questions, which have been added to the channel, ranked by popularity (another smart algorithm is used here);
d) Spotlights - shows all expired Spotlights in one place. If a user clicks on the first ever or middle Spotlight, all of the consequent Spotlights will be played in succession;
e) Featured - you can now feature up to 10 posts from your channel! Open the menu on any message and tap the “star” icon. The featured post will appear in the tab as #1 Featured. If you feature another post, the initial post will become #2 and so on. Up to 10 posts could be featured. This functionality allow you to string several posts to tell a broader story. Please make sure to Feature at least one post, as otherwise, the tab is going to be empty.

- We listened to your feedback regarding media uploads! This update includes major improvements to media uploads for both regular media and spotlights, including “offline mode” and auto-retry whenever you lose connectivity during an upload. You should experience significant improvements and not lose your posts!

- As I’ve mentioned in the previous post, all public Pepo channels are now live on the web, with a unique page/url for every post. The app update now allows you to easily share any post from Pepo to Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and other apps.

- Now your content can live outside Pepo, i.e. if you share a video/picture/spotlight from Pepo, it will now be played directly in Facebook/Twitter.

- You may have already noticed that Pepo is automatically tweeting at you when your channel achieves certain milestones and when you take live Q&A. We’ll be doing a lot more with Twitter in the coming weeks. Make sure we have your Twitter handle!

Let us know if you have any questions or comments!

We've also brought some action buttons to the front - no it is easier to reply to a message and open the contextual menu (Android - 3 vertical dots, iOS - 3 horizontal dots).

Hi there, is a good thing am getting more members to n my channel. However, it looks like majority of them are passive members. How do I filter out some members?
Hi Rosanna Fung, could you please elaborate on the term "filter out"? What do you have in mind?
There are always different types of readers, some are more active, some are more passive.
