There's a myriad of photo, video and sound sharing services. Some better than others but why not words? Twitter isn't about words it's a communication utility. A thumb on the pulse of humanity's consciousness. Facebook has become a social sludge of frictionless puerile cruft. Both these networks need a way to attach words with meaning. Something not to scan but something to slow down and read.
The idea for Opuss was born in Hackney in August 2011 when we decided we couldn't be the only people that would love a way to easily read, write and share ideas, stories, poems, jokes; in fact any sort of text with a community who love to read and write extraordinary words.
After looking around and finding nothing that quite fit the bill, we decided that we just had to do it ourselves.
Opuss was born.
