An update on Heard, and how we’re reacting to the challenges posed by the Corona Virus.
Covid-19 has hit people hard, and its impact is being felt worldwide. It’s heartbreaking to see people we love suffer, but the way people are coming together is a beautiful thing.
Most people discover Heard at events, and obviously all our events are now postponed or cancelled, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t still using Heard to stay connected.
Heard was created for people, not events, and we’ve seen some amazing ways that are creating communities and staying connected in this difficult time.
Social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation, and it’s more important than ever to keep in touch with the people around us and make sure everyone is safe.
From starting conversations to let people know which local shops are stocked with the essentials, to creating moments to ensure people who can’t get out don’t feel left other own. It’s amazing to see Heard used in such a positive way and we couldn’t be more proud of our community.
We were working on some big projects for this summer before the lockdown hit, so obviously we’re disappointed but it’s important we all play our part and help to contain the spread. Rest assured when this is all over our events teams will be back bigger than ever, and we’re already working on some amazing events and nights so watch this space.
In the meantime, keep using Heard to look out for people, and let us know if there are any features we can create that will make life easier until we’re all safe again, we love hearing your suggestions and we read them all.
Stay safe, look after each other and we’ll see you soon x
