FAQ for MetaMap

⁉️What is MetaMap?

MetaMap is a location-based social network that helps people discover their immediate surroundings - letting them share news, ask questions, and interact freely. MetaMap lets you leave comments and chat with everyone near you. You’ll get notified when someone says something and vice versa. Think of it as a self-aware map.

📱How do I download MetaMap?

MetaMap is available on the App Store.

How do I ❤️ or dislike a comment?

Comments may be liked by all users regardless of location. To like a comment swipe the comment block left. Then, tap the 'heart' icon. A comment increases in text size with more likes. To alternatively dislike a comment, tap the 'thumbs down' icon. A comment decreases in text size with more dislikes.

How do I ➕ a comment?

Please ensure location is enabled. Press on the pin with the 'plus' icon, type your comment and press 'send'. Users within a hundred meters of the position you post the comment will recieve a notification to which they are able to respond to. Your comment is represented by a pin.


🔇How can I report a comment?

MetaMap's content is continually moderated. MetaMap has no tolerance for objectionable content or abusive users. To report a comment, swipe the comment block right. Then, tap the red icon.
