It was less than two weeks ago that Hornet, the world’s premier gay social network, unveiled its much-anticipated Version 4.0. That update solidified the brand’s commitment to merging meaningful connections to other guys with Stories and Places, which has made the app the most useful tool for gay men of the modern era. But yet another way Hornet is leading the charge in the arena of gay apps is with its Hornet Community, which invites all users worldwide to directly impact their experience on the app through personal contributions.
The Hornet Community marks the very first LGBTQ social network that invites users to become community contributors. And best of all, in exchange for Hornet Community contributions, users receive points that can be redeemed for everything from Hornet T-shirts and Hornet Premium membership to Amazon gift cards!
Here are 8 ways users can shape their Hornet experience by contributing:
Users can become City Ambassadors who provide tips and gay-focused information about their respective city. That info can help guide platform-wide content revolving around that region, and users can help Hornet’s newsroom with the creation of its Hornet City Guides.
Writers can share original content with Hornet’s audience of more than 25 million guys worldwide. Users are invited to work alongside Hornet’s international content team to create fun, compelling articles of all sorts, from news and entertainment to lifestyle and travel stories. You’ll appear as the author of your stories, seen by guys all over the world!
One of Hornet’s longest running programs is our #HornetGuys! Each day we choose a Hornet user to feature on our various social media channels. We love to showcase the diversity of the men who use Hornet, and it’s a great way for guys to connect to other users all over the world. Interested users just need to fill out a brief questionnaire.
Users interested in testing out new features of the app can provide their feedback before products become widely available, which helps us shape the user experience for everyone.
Users can also help us ensure Hornet is a safe space without fake or abusive profiles. Users can monitor and report to the Hornet support team suspicious or inappropriate behavior.
Multilingual users can assist Hornet’s international newsroom in converting articles and other content into various languages. Translators help ensure that interesting articles are seen by users the world over.
If you’re the owner of a club, bar or otherwise LGBT-friendly space, you can use Hornet to ensure our users are aware of you! Hornet Place Owners can manage the details about their business on Hornet Places, and get ratings and comments from Hornet users.
Users can help us expand the Hornet Community by referring us to friends in exchange for Premium upgrades, Hornet swag and gift cards. After signing up you can share a personal referral code on your profile and on social media. It’s super simple!
