Here at B-Social we launched our live app on June 26th 2018 and since then, we’re on a mission to make money as social as your lives.
We believe that financial life today is rarely confined to solitary spending and saving, but involves collaboration and sharing with our friends and family. B-Social allows customers to create groups based on their social lives.
Our society is changing. With advances in technology, we’re becoming more connected than ever and we’re sharing more and more. From living together with others to who we go on holiday with. From one-off dinners to groups of friends who always socialise on a Thursday. We feel that our finances should keep up and should adapt to these changes so that we can always feel in control when it comes to our money and friends.
Just as you share your experiences, you share your finances and we intend to make that whole experience easier, simpler, fairer. From lending money to each other, splitting bills to tracking spending over time, B-Social believes there’s a better way of doing things.
Today you can set up a group between friends, pay for everyday spending and track your expenditure. We’re not stopping there though and we’ve got big plans for the future.
We aim to talk with you as often as possible, on this blog we will share updates on:
- Our product updates and what’s coming next;
- The technology that drives our app; and
- Company announcements and news
At B-Social, we put customers at the heart of what we do, so your feedback and questions will help us in creating what you need — starting right now!
- What do you wish our app would do?
- What do you think of our website?
