Happier is a Boston-based company with a mission to inspire millions of people to be happier in their everyday lives. The social network is aimed at celebrating and sharing the small moments of happiness in life.
It enables members to post photos and status updates about things that make them happy. In the future, Happier hopes to make money by selling products that celebrate happiness.
The company’s vision is inspired by research in psychology, neuroscience and economics about human happiness that shows focusing on the positive and sharing good things with others makes you happier, healthier, and more productive.
Nataly Kogan, co-founder & Chief Happiness Officer, immigrated to the U.S. with her parents from the former Soviet Union when she was thirteen and spent two decades “chasing the big happy,” as she calls it. Nataly became inspired to stop saying “I’ll be happy when…” and start thinking “I’m happier now because…”
Happier recently launched its first product, a free mobile application available on iTunes. This app gives you the ability to change collections, text, and photos in any of your happy moments whenever you like and share it with the online community members.
