Woto is a new type of social publishing solution that sits in the middle ground between Facebook, Twitter, blogs and websites. It’s for people who want to share more than a small box-sized social media post, without the complexity of a website or the commitment of a blog.
Woto makes this possible by introducing the concept of stand-alone pages that are created with the familiarity of a word-processor, the ease and immediacy of a social media app and the functionality of a powerful website builder. Anyone can create a Woto page and publish to the web in just 3 clicks and a few seconds.
There are no privacy issues, no ads, no SPAM, no timelines, no restrictions, no design constraints. It’s your space, your rules – you can create anything you want from a blank canvas or template. And best of all, it’s free!
Woto was created by three industry veterans, Ian Collins, Ekin Caglar and Yusuf Comez. The team started development in January 2013 and launched an MVP at the Dublin Web Summit in November 2013. In January 2014, the global ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) invested in Woto via its venture team, Zag. This was followed by a seed round led by Ingenious Ventures, where Galata Business Angels participated. Woto was launched on 1st September 2014.
