At Mello, we believe that no one should go through their parenthood journey alone.
This is why we are on the mission to build an app that helps parents build their village and cultivate meaningful connections.
One of the ways we work on this mission is to continuously improve the app with new features that can really support parents to connect with other like-minded families.
Recently we have updated the app again with some new features that make it even easier to optimize the parent research and look for families with matching criteria, such as common interests, languages they speak, location and topics they like to post about.
Explore these Mello’s features and learn about how you can explore the community and connect with the parents you have the most in common with!
Use The Feed Categories
You can now post in the Mello feed and assign your post to a specific category.
#Meetpeople is for socializing, playdates and organizing meetups.
#Marketplace is the place-to-post if you look to sell, give or swap your kid(s)’ clothes, toys, etc.
#ThingsToDo is the tag to share about interesting activities, local events and places you particularly enjoy or would suggest.
#Childcare is for launching (or responding to) SOS aka exchanging childcare support and other supporting offers.
#Advice is your special box for questions, best recommendations and advice for the Mello community.
Add languages and interest topics to your profile
We are an international community and value the diversity in it.
You can now add the languages you speak (or prefer speaking) in your bio and let other parents know what is the one(s) they can use when they want to reach out to you.
You will get a pop up asking to select the languages you speak or edit the field by going into your profile settings to “Find people who speak your language…”.
You can also add new description tags to your profile! Our collection already includes many options, for example, single parent, dog owner, LGBTQ, international parent, and much more!
Organize the feed and stay up to date about the conversations you are most interested in.
Click on the topic tags and filter the posts in the feed by the ones you really want to hear and share about.
Use The Filter To Optimize The Parent Research
If you want to be more specific about the parents you want to connect to, you can optimize the research by using the distance, topic and age of children filters.
Adjust the size of the space within which you want to look for connections and check who is in your local area.
Find the best playmates for your little ones by filtering the research based on the age of children that better work for your family.
Do you have more ideas about how we can improve the app or some cool feature to suggest?
Get in touch! We are always happy to hear your feedback!
