Move over Whatsapp, Facebook and Tinder – Pooductive is here to save your bum, AND it’s here to stay!
Developed by Ricardo Gruber and Marco Hernandez, this iOS app allows you to chat with known and unknown people who’re busy doing their daily work in the bathroom, just like you. No need to feel isolated behind locked doors, now. You can even manage the distance between you and your co-pooper, going up to a level of him/her being 250 km away. If, however, you wish to go “Global”, you’ll be allowed to choose between a group chat and a personal one.
And by providing you with an option to remain anonymous, the app is also saving your bum from public awkwardness. If you, unknowingly obviously, cross paths with the person you’d chatted with the previous evening, that is.
“Technically, Pooductive is a messaging app, but it’s so much more. It’s a community, made up of people who are all in the same position as you…pardon the pun,” as reported by Tech Times.
It’s interesting to see how informal human interaction is becoming. Forget about the Social Media Tick entering your bedroom – it’s now invaded your bathroom as well. What was previously the most private (and sacred!) place in the house, has now been thrown open for public inspection and discussion. Nothing, it seems, is private anymore. Right from where you are, and what you’re doing, to what problems you’re having – they’re all out there, playing the role of conversation starters. What fun!
At the same time, it must be understood that the popularity of an app depends on the desire to bridge a gap that was previously obstructing healthy communication. Considering how enthusiastically Pooductive has been received by the masses, it can safely be inferred that the introduction of this app is a matter of public service.
You’ll no longer bore yourself by re-reading your poop-book/poop-novel, or the things that are written at the back of your shampoo bottle. Or stare at ants walking up the wall, and block their path, just for the heck of it.
The only problem that seems to materialise, however, is the amount of time you’ll spend in the bathroom from now on. All may be forgotten, thanks to this new addition to social media. What was previously your ‘alone time’ with your own self, has now been brutally snatched away from you. No more serious arguments with your alter ego, no more retrospective thoughts, no more future planning.
On the other hand, who knew bathrooms would be the new bedroom. All you’ll need is an air-conditioner, and you’re good to go!
