We’re a small software company based in The Netherlands, founded in 2018 on the belief that social networking should be more humane.
Most social networks are built in service of social media apps, which are expertly designed to keep your attention and monetize your data. What's worse; if you leave social media, you lose your social networks. Cardbox is a social network built in service of people, focused purely on saving you time and effort.
Before Cardbox, we realized that most of us already had a central place that helps us get in touch with the people in our life: the address book. However, the experience of managing the contact information of everyone you know is messy and outdated.
At the same time, the detrimental effects of social media on mental health, relationships, and politics had become quite clear. Surely there must be a way for people to stay connected without being exposed to all kinds of noise?
We realized that by combining contacts and social networking, we could fix most issues with both, and in hindsight combining them just makes so much sense. No posts, no likes, no ads; just people.
For us, success isn't measured by the time you spend in our apps; it's measured by the value you get out of using them. The effort we save you by working for you in the background, the more time and attention you have for the good things in life.
