Q: What is Blaze?
A: Blaze is a social network, where you can vote, discuss and influence the most important issues in your community. It wants to connect you to other people who want to change the world and will empower you to take action. Your opportunity is now!
Q: Do I need anything special to use it?
A: All you need to use Blaze is a mobile phone which supports iOS. Join us at the App Store!
We will supply an Android and a Web-based site soon. Sign up on the website, and we’ll let you know once they are ready!
Once you're in, begin finding and following accounts whose votes interest you. We'll recommend great accounts once you're signed up.
Q: What are the post options?
A: You can either post a statement (for example: ‘Blaze is awesome!’) or a question (‘How can we change the world?’). Depending on what you choose, there will be a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ vote, or a poll, where you can vote on the best solution.
Q: What are ‘Hot’, ‘Following’, and ‘Local’?
A: Those are the three walls available on Blaze.
‘Hot’ displays the most relevant content on the network worldwide and gives you a great perspective about big issues.
‘Following’ shows you what users that you are interested in post and vote, whereas ‘Local’ is a great tool to let you know what your neighbours and other people in your town think.
Q: How do I find people to follow?
A: When you create an account, you can search for people by name or @username, or import friends from other networks. You can also follow some of the people we've suggested, or just follow interesting users from the ‘hot’ and ‘local’ wall.
Q: What does it mean to follow someone on Blaze?
A: Following someone means you've chosen to subscribe to their Blaze updates. When you follow someone, every time they post, it will appear on your ‘Following’ wall. Also, we will let you know, if they voted publicly.
Q: How do I know who I'm following?
A: After you click or tap the Follow button on someone's profile, you're following them. See a list of people you're following by clicking on the following link on your profile page.
Q: How do I know who is following me?
A: The 'Followers' link on your profile page will also tell you who is following you.
Q: Who reads my updates?
A: Your followers can read whatever you posts. Also, your post can be seen by people living around you and, if your post becomes very popular its also listed on the hot wall.
Q: Can I edit a post once I've posted it?
A: No, you can’t edit a post once you have posted it, but you can delete it.
Q: Can I change my vote ?
A: Yes, you can change a vote by simply clicking on the other options.
Q: How do I report spam?
A: You can report anything inappropriate and we will check the corresponding content. We encourage you to always block and report any spammers you find.
