the most powerful, full-featured community software solution there is. See for yourself...

Your Community
And every community

The Honeycommb platform was built to support the diverse needs of communities all over the world. What we’ve built is a powerful out-of-the-box community solution that you can adjust to suit your needs as you grow.

White Label

The level at which you need or want to “own” the brand experience of your community is up to you.

  • Dedicated, Branded Mobile Applications
  • App Store Product Pages
  • Publish To Your Developer Account
  • Custom Domains (web app)
  • Branded Help Center
  • Email Masking
  • Complete Removal of "Honeycommb"
  • and much more...
White Label

Ownership & control go hand-in-hand. Without ownership, there is no *real* control. With Honeycommb, you get both.

Ownership: All the content and data created within your community is under your ownership. We help you gather it and protect it, but it's yours and yours alone.

Control: From the brand experience to aspects of the product experience to how you manage and engage your community, Honeycommb has powerful tools that give you complete control.

White Label

Honeycommb makes gathering and engaging members easy. Every member has a profile. Dynamic, modern, beautiful mobile and web application keep you and members connected and engaged.

Gather: Whether your community is set to "Public" or "Private", open registration, pre-approvals, and tools like SSO (Single Sign-On) make filling your community with members easy.

Engaging: Rich UGC (User Generated Content) like Live video streaming, follow models, notifications, and direct messaging keep members coming back to your community time & time again.

White Label

Honeycommb's platform gives you and your members content tools and built-in distribution for that content to create, share, and express

Create: Members create value for the entire community through rich, modern content tools in the Honeycommb applications. Administrators have even more content tools, a CMS to create, schedule, and edit content.

Distribute: When a piece of content is created a lot of things happen. It creates notifications, it gets sent to profiles and home feeds, it get sent to the Discover area, it gets a "hot score." Pretty powerful stuff.

White Label

Not for every community but for some, we see "revenue" as a way to make communities *amazing*. Creating, growing & engaging a community can take a lot of effort. Revenue tools can make that effort viable.

Membership: (launching soon) Make your community a membership-based community where members have to simply pay for access.

Sponsorship: The context of your community creates value for sponsors who want to reach your specific community.

More to come: Ad technology, shopping cart solutions, and more are slated for development.

Record videos from within the mobile applications, preview and clip it (if needed), add a title and text, or not, and hit post!
