Now In 600+ Schools And Open To Any Student, Lore Gives Higher Ed A Next-Gen Social Network | TechCrunch
Ottway Ducard stashed this in education
With 600+ schools on board, Lore has been able to build strong organic growth, without relying on paid user acquisition. However, while hundreds of institutions may be on the network, only one or two classes per school may be involved, so it’s got a long way to go before reaching critical mass. So, in an attempt to bring the whole school online, the team is starting with a targeted group of four schools and working with a team of students at those schools to push the envelope. And like other networks before it, the plan is to restrict access for schools until a certain number of students have joined — and worry about monetization once enough schools (and students) are using the network.
