Young Ghanaian Graduate Creates Social Media Platform, Set To Rival Facebook & TikTok 

Israel Acheampong, a Ghanaian graduate and techpreneur has launched his own social media platform called Stayplain, a social media network platform that let you create a social community of people around the world to share audio, video, music, content, photos & more.

Israel, who is a graduate of the University of Government Studies in Ghana, took to his Twitter handle to celebrate the launch of his app and urges Ghanaian and Africans to use it. The young and talented Ghanaian said it’s a dream come true for him as this has been his dream.

He started creating the app in 2015 while he was still studying at the university. “The dream started when I was still a student at UDS in 2015. I had a strong desire to develop a social media application. It took me six years to be able to come up with it and I was able to do that in December 2021,” he said.

According to him, the app has features that will strongly compete with applications like TikTok and Facebook. He continues by adding that he’s doing everything possible for Stayplain to become the world’s most advanced platform.

Unlike Facebook, Acheampong says Stayplain users can post on other social media platforms they use through the app, which is a unique feature. Also, with a minimum of one megabyte, one can use the app for a long time.

Users of the App can also share content which includes text, images, and videos and the content can be in the form of updates from people’s lives, essays, or reports on an event.

Students using the app can create class pages for group discussions and studies. They can also join educational forums to exchange ideas. Also, students can vote in an election or record an opinion of their research.

The app currently has over five thousand downloads on the Google Play Store and hundreds of positive reviews with an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5.5.
