SocialPlanes: Paper Planes to Physically Send Social Media Messages

by Hazel Chua

The weird thing about social media is that it’s not really that social in the personal sense. Sure, you can connect and message with friends and acquaintances, whenever and wherever they might be. But if you’re sending online messages to someone you could otherwise talk to on the phone or in person, then isn’t that kind of besides the point?

Trying to bring the social aspect back to social media are the SocialPlanes.

They were thought up by Caio AndradeRafael OchoaLinn Livijn Wexell, and the team at CANU. These are basically paper planes that bear the logos and theme colors of popular social networks and messaging apps like Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp.

There’s a space on the inside of the plane where you can doodle and write messages for the intended recipient. When you’re ready to send it, just fold it up and let it fly. Of course, you can’t fly paper planes across the country to specific addresses (that’s what Facebook is for!) but you can use it to send messages to people a few feet away.

You can download the designs on the SocialPlanes website
