VOISS: The new social media platform for students

by | Jan 30, 2015

Social media and chatting platforms seem to be all the rage and why not? Everyone is glued to their phone nowadays anyway.

And as far as social media is concerned, another platform has joined the list, VOISS is a social media platform created to provide a channel of communication among students in tertiary institutions.

Cloudshot, a technology startup, has created the Facebook-like platform for students where users can upload files in formats such as mp3, mp4, pdf and the likes.


Kelvin Umechukwu, the platform creator says:

VOISS was created for the major aim of communication and information dissemination on campuses. Students of tertiary institutions register on the platform stating their faculty, department and level. Through the platform students can post gists, communicate with their course mates, get latest info from class representatives, get information and materials from their lecturers, and also view campus news.

One can search for course mates, posts to course mates, communicate with class reps and also perform the normal functions that can be done on a social networking site; like, dislike, comment, upload photo, upload cover photo, and create a profile.

>> Hey, they have a dislike button, something that’s missing from Facebook.

The platform launches in February with the web platform, and the android version will shortly follow. The platform is currently available only for the students at Obafemi Awolowo University.
