Why reconnect exists
We create in person communities to detox from distractions, make friends, and just hang out. Social media currently has a monopoly on social connections, meaning social media has become a requirement to socialize. Therefore if you do not want to experience the negative effects of social media and choose to delete it, your social life will suffer. Reconnect exists to balance this monopoly by providing an easily accessible face to face alternative to social media.
Why no phones?
1. Depth of connection increases
2. No distractions from the present moment
3. These factors create a more lively and exploratory social environment
