PartyPic snaps attention from wildcats

Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter, you know them well; but PartyPic is the latest rendition to social media that has created a new experience for staying connected.

“It’s really easy with the current social media platforms to follow your friends, your family, your followers,” said Miles Rampel Chico native and PartyPic founder. “But there is still no easy way to open up an app and instantly connect with the people in your current location.”

The Chico based application allows users to take photo or video and share it with anyone within a two mile radius. After 48 hours the content posted, deletes.

“I wanted to make a location-based social network so people can connect through their location,” said Rampel.

Although screen shots are still unpreventable, PartyPic allows anonymous posts and requires all photos and videos to be taken in the moment, as opposed to uploading previously recorded content.

Taylor Mercurio, a Chico State senior and PartyPic employee, describes the application as, “The fastest way to share a moment with your campus shamelessly.”

This application is most commonly used in Los Angeles, the Bay Area and Chico.

PartyPic is currently available in the app store for iPhones and is expected to launch for Androids next month.
