Here at Backplane, we are building the future. While many think social networks have plateaued, we are changing the game, building a real-time rich media, visually navigated environment where people can meet, socialize, and collaborate.
Backplan is launching with the web’s largest (+56 million!) and most hardcore fan community, Lady Gaga’s “Little Monsters”. Based on a person’s interests or passions, users will experience a network that beautifully integrates advanced technologies such as augmented reality, media streaming, and content-based chat to achieve an extreme level of live, user-to-user interaction.
We are funded by the smartest investors who share our vision; Eric Schmidt, Lady Gaga, Ron Conway, Google Ventures, Tomorrow Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Justin Bieber, and many other top Entertainment and Silicon Valley professionals.
