Sekr Launched SekrHubs, an In-app Community Forum

sekr | March 21, 2022

Sekr announced the launch of SekrHubs, a new in-app community forum changing how users can interact with one another. Sekr is the mobile platform simplifying the outdoor travel planning experience. SekrHubs enables app members to exchange knowledge and experiences, get information about campgrounds, travel gear, and more, and interact with other app members who share their interests via SubHubs, customized channels inside SekrHubs.

Each SubHub channel within SekrHubs is dedicated to a topic or experience and allows members to connect with others who share similar interests and experiences. SubHubs can have thousands of participants, allowing members to connect with new people, share expertise, and seek help, all while having the opportunity to add and tag other members directly in the group.

Sekr's purpose is to simplify social interactions and collaborations in the outdoors to respect individuals' social habits and preferences. The new chat function was created with the community in mind to make knowledge exchange more effortless and more accessible than ever. In addition, the firm built SekrHubs as a centralized location for conversations and message boards to streamline and extend communication.

To ensure member safety and privacy, Sekr has assigned Community Leaders to each SubHub. These Community Leaders will act as official Sekr moderators, curating conversations, encouraging member engagement, and most importantly, reporting any inappropriate activity within the SubHub that violates Sekr's Community Guidelines.

SekrHubs is now live and accessible to all new and existing app members. SekrHubs began with a core set of SubHubs dedicated to caravans and events; rigs, builds, and vehicles; general Sekr product feedback, tips and tricks, top tools; and regional groups.
