The Good Word: Gospel singer Lamont Addo
Jister is a social media platform that gives its users two profiles. With a dual profile, users have the ability to post either publicly or anonymously. The primary objective of Jister is to engage users in a fun and innovative way while offering an outlet to express yourself without fear or judgment.
The inspiration for creating Jister came from the need of finding a safe space to vent. As an adopted child of former drug addicted parents and a family history of bipolar and mental health, Addo says it has been difficult to find appropriate outlets.
He says, “We realized social media has played a major role in the declining of mental health. People are constantly comparing themselves with others and the level of perfection that is portrayed is unattainable.” Subscribe!
