What is Pole Sabz?

 

Pole Sabz is a powerful social platform that does not compromise user privacy. The project started 5 years ago and has been in steady development for the past 3 years.

 

In today’s world having a social footprint is essential in giving you or the product/service that you provide a competitive edge. Unfortunately due to the constant violation of user privacy, entrusting information to current social providers can be frightening. That is where Pole Sabz comes in.

 

Pole Sabz provides an alternative social platform where user information is not sold to advertising companies. Pole Sabz revenue will come from the service it provides to advanced user accounts and business entities. Users/entities can publish notes, blog posts, pictures, videos and much more based on their account type. Pole Sabz clearly distinguishes and allows users to choose what content is public and what is private.

 

The public content will get published in Pole Sabz public repositories where it would be intelligently categorized and sorted for all users to browse and enjoy. The private content will only be accessible by those who the content is intended for. The following image is a screenshot from the current public pages in development.

 

 

Pole Sabz uses HTML5 throughout the site to provide beautiful and consistent experience. The UI has been designed to be touch friendly to provide better compatibility for touchscreen devices. Pole Sabz uses some of the most advanced JavaScript and CSS combinations to provide a breathtaking design without sacrificing performance or stability.

 

Pole Sabz uses several systems which have been designed from ground up to work well together. These systems provide a complete  and comprehensive service that would cover all the needs of users/entities from basic socialization to advance social activities and business interaction.

 

Exhibit (provides the core of the social platform)

 

Floodgate (complex algorithm that intelligently organizes content)

 

CIMA (Provides media upload, organization and presentation)

 

Bazaar (Allows entities to sell digital content)
