Send Messages via Strangers with the Somebody App

by Hazel Chua

Thanks to the internet and technology in general, what was once impossible is now possible. Mobile devices now let people communicate with friends and family who are far, far away with the push of a button or with a quick tap on the screen. Making the entire process a lot more personal – albeit unconventionally – is Somebody.

Somebody is an app that locates fellow users who are closest to your current location and instructs them to deliver a message to you. Aside from the message, the sender can choose to include actions or other instructions for the messenger, who is often just a stranger passing through.

Somebody works best with a critical mass of users in a given area; colleges, workplaces, parties and concerts can become Somebody hotspots simply by designating themselves as one (official hotspots on somebodyapp.com). The most high-tech part of the app is not in the programming, it’s in the users who dare to deliver a message to stranger.

Somebody was developed by artist Miranda July with Miu Miu. You can download the app for free from the iTunes App Store.
