Did you know that last year alone, Facebook child sex abuse reports to NCMEC amounted to a little more than 20 million? Now, Facebook has announced they’re working on developing an Instagram App for children under the age of 13! This is simply unacceptable.

Think about what could happen if we have all users verified on social media: 

  • There would be a significant reduction in the sharing of CSAM (child sex abuse material)
  • There would be a significant reduction in bullying,
  • There would be a significant reduction in scammers,
  • There would be an increase of online accountability; and, 
  • We can segregate children online, so they can have a safe space (without fear of child predators or random adults contacting them). 

We’ve decided to take action instead of waiting for government to protect our children and vulnerable people. We’ve decided to become a leader and step up to the plate for the world to see what’s possible if we have online accountability.

 

 

Say hello to 65square.

A new experience in social media. It’s a game-like setting, showing you a 3D world without the gaming atmosphere. It’s not a game. It’s real life or as close as possible in a virtual setting. And yes, everyone will be verified.

Time to reserve your 'plot' of land inside 65square now! Less than $20!

You will build (from templates) a “home” (a 3D graphical representation of your physical home or perhaps what you want your home to look and feel like) instead of having a “home page” that you might be used to on other social media. You will experience people real time, using innovative chat, video or audio features.

Parts of your virtual home will offer you features you’re used to on regular social media. Go into your ‘kitchen’ to see and access your cooking groups you’re apart of. Enter your ‘media room’ to see shareable moments you’ve posted or your family’s timeline. The experience and features have a wide variety of customization options.

Children can be verified on our system and with exemplary moderation, they can have a safe space without fear of random adults contacting them. Kids will learn more about having respect and accountability online. Ultimately, our stringent login system will verify every time someone logs in, that they are who they are supposed to be.

 

 

Augmented Reality Ready!

We’re bringing AR (augmented reality) into our system from day 1. Creators and businesses will be able to upload (or create) 3D objects (products, clothing or anything!) into the system and integrate this into their experiences. Watch the video (below) to see one of our talented engineers running a test. We’re not finished developing but you can compare this to final release version soon! Imagine the possibilities!

 

Business owners of all kinds will have the opportunity to set up and use business features right out of the box. Within an hour you can have a store set up as well as web browser access.* Have a variety of 3D buildings to choose from. Set up wherever you like inside the system (it doesn’t have to be your real-world location). Employees and business owners get 24 hour access inside the system (no timer) while inside their business. Have store hours for when real employees will be at your store or let us operate your sales 24 hours a day without you!  All for pennies on the dollar compared to other platforms like Amazon. With AR and verified users we know there’s a beautiful road ahead!

*Web browser access for customers shopping only for non-adult related products. Adult related products or content will only be available in-app.

Plus, who doesn’t like the idea of going shopping with friends? Linked Friends is a first of its kind, allowing users to come to your store in groups! Check out the test (video) below for more

 

 

Speaking of creators, did you know that using our system over websites like OnlyFans or Patreon could save you $1000’s of dollars per year? Since 65square is run by a nonprofit, shareholders and investors aren’t our concern. Within a couple minutes a business owner or content creator can be set up with a building inside the system.

Worried about time limits like other users? Don’t be. Creators and business owners while inside their business spaces, won’t have their system timer ticking! Actually, business owners and creators can see their patrons’ daily time remaining in the system and even gift time to them!

Environmental concerns will fuel the innovation on our site, we hope. Yes, some likely some won’t like the daily time limit on our system (the working number right now is that the limit will be approximately 2 hours per day with extensions available). Some people will love it! Mental health and the health of our planet is at the core of this decision. We want to encourage you every day to be thankful for the time you have outside of your phone. Imagine, a big tech company actually caring about the mental health of its users!

 

So this is just a peak inside. More is coming and we hope you’ll join us! We’re very proud of what we’ve done and what’s to come! Our tentative launch is mid-2022! Interested in supporting the project? Sign up for your virtual plot of land now by selecting the Basic Plot of Land which will include one calendar year of service when we launch!

Kids inside 65square?

We’ve formed a Wellness Team comprised of mental health experts to focus on the development of features for adults and kids and their experiences in the system. Our Wellness Team’s Mandate:

The Wellness Team exists to focus on the needs of the user by managing issues such as technology addiction, online safety and well-being. By adhering to healthier design and technology frameworks developed by industry professionals, we hope to improve user experience while still maintaining an enjoyable, community-friendly platform for both children and adults.

As such, kids will be grouped together with different restrictions inside our system. First, it should be noted that only kids of that age bracket will be seen to other kids in that age range (So adults won’t be visible to kids and vice-versa). Second, a child WON’T be able to set up an account unless a parent is first set up inside the system. Children will be grouped into the following age brackets with some restrictions below:

Ages 6-10: No custom messaging, parents control time limits, heavy focus on edutainment type programming and creations 

Ages 11-13: Eased social restrictions, ability to send custom messages including pictures and audio clips (no video), nude image scanning will be standard and parent notified if a nude is sent/received

Ages 14-17: No ability for video messages or video calls but audio calls allowed, nude image scanning still in force, shopping at PG rated content creators or stores now available

Below is a clip of the basic system we’re using to detect nude images. Please donate or better yet, sign up now to help make this a reality faster!!

Our first app!

We have been working hard and now you can test some of the tech we’ve developed! It’s an age/gender guesser. It may not be much to look at but we’re very proud! Our AI team developed this system for 65square but it will be available now as a fun way to understand how the technology will work. It will make an assessment of your age and gender just using your phone or tablet’s camera! This is only the first step but more is coming soon! WARNING: This AI model is not trained for children yet. If you use the app on a child it will likely return an age between 25-40, although that may be funny.
