Lifebox Seeks to Spark the 'World's Largest Dinner Table Discussion'

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - Lifebox, a Boston-based social media startup, has launched a new website and Android app designed to stimulate rich conversations.

"We're over a decade into unprecedented social innovation," says Adam Noble, Lifebox's founder and CEO. "Yet no technology has been able to spark the types of rich discussions that happen at your dinner table, online."

Lifebox plans to accomplish this with questions. 

Each day, "Lifeboxers" are asked a single question about their life experiences. They have 24 hours to answer, and must share in order to unlock a community thread.

"This is one of the beautiful things about Lifebox," says Noble. "You aren't influenced by other people because you can't see what they've said until you contribute to the conversation, which makes the answers more authentic and unique."

Users can comment on answers and vote for their favorites, and at the end of each day a winner is crowned and the answers are privately stored away on their author's profiles.

"The conversations are what matter most on Lifebox, but each individual answer is something really valuable," says Noble. "Over time, these quick daily moments of reflection become a valuable source of your experiences and perspectives."

Lifebox was selected to launch at DEMO on November 19-20, where they are officially unveiling www.mylifebox.com in front of a tech-savvy Silicon Valley audience.

"After traveling the country and vetting hundreds of companies on our DEMO Tour, we are excited to bring Lifebox as one of the few selected companies launching new products solving big problems at DEMO Fall 2014," said Erick Schonfeld, executive producer of DEMO. "Lifebox has the potential to be a game-changer."
