Jurni is a new and unique video sharing application where users share their experiences via video. Jurni users capture moments that matter while allowing greater connectivity with people who are going through similar experiences and emotions.
With Jurni, you can:
• Record up to a 45 second Jurni
• Create and maintain a public or private video journal of your life story
• Search for Jurnies all over the world via people, topics, and emotions
• Follow all of another user’s topics or only follow the topics that interest you most
• Browse through the public and following feed
• Have real life conversations through video comments
At Jurni, we wanted to create something within the modern technological framework that changes this societal disproportion and addresses the human needs Eisenstein writes about. Authenticity has been a staple word Jurni has emphasized throughout development. A sort of genuineness is lacking today because people are bombarded with external stimuli without sufficient time to reflect, relax and truly communicate and connect with others. In the past, journaling was one method people used for memorializing life’s moments allowing for self-reflection, growth and healing. Scientific studies bear out the compelling value of journalling on self-awareness and impactful self-conversation. Jurni decided that putting a modern spin on journalling through an all video interactive application would serve the dual purpose of memorializing events in a beautiful, visual manner, while allowing users to share their stories with others. By self-defining an emotion and topic, the user categorizes jurnies for later consumption in an organized, searchable fashion.
People have the opportunity to respond to a user’s public jurnies via video. There is no ability to text nor is there a like button. If someone feels strongly enough about a user’s Jurni, they can respond in kind with video comments. Texting trolls and the ease with which texting creates negativity and disconnect are removed from the Jurni equation. Similarly, a like button leads to superficialities that Jurni does not encourage. If someone seeks disharmony or small gestures, they always have other social media options. Jurni, on the other hand, is designed to enhance engagement and deeper interaction among people.
Discovering that surface level communication has become an imperceptible, ubiquitous form of communication only happens when confronted with something wholly different from the current norm. Fortunately, using Jurni is that wake up call. The initial shock generated by the dissonance between Jurni and other current approaches challenges users. Breaking through modern contrived barriers takes a bit of effort at first but the time-tested rewards of journaling are now encapsulated in Jurni for those willing to embark on a new path.
As the ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi proclaimed, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” So to, modern society’s step back toward authentic community begins with a single Jurni.
Jurni is a video journaling platform focused on emotions and experiences. With Jurni, users can record a 45 second Jurni and associate an emotion and topic to that experience so that the user can connect visually to other people in the world going through similar emotions and experiences. Jurni is topical, authentic, emotional, and focused. Jurni fulfills the true purpose of social networking.
We are 100% video centric with a layer of emotions.
