Zenly Lets You Win Against Friends by Staying at Home During COVID-19 Pandemic
Zenly, a location-sharing app owned by Snapchat, has modified its leaderboards to challenge people to stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak. The app usually lets friends share their location with each other, and lets others know when they hang out together. However, because of COVID-19, things have changed and going out is not something anybody should be doing.
Zenly was acquired by Snapchat back in 2017, for a hefty $213 million. The app is similar to how Foursquare’s Swarm app works - primarily around location sharing and checking in together at different places. For its new Stay at Home challenge, Zenly is encouraging people to stay home and top the leaderboard. The leaderboard can be shared on various social networks, along with coronavirus prevention tips now available in the app.
