New releases are just around the corner enabling users to even more efficiently connect and interact. Key features will include end user posts on the front page, simpler and more powerful filter options, and gamification elements.

“The development of the company has been a step by step journey and the next releases will for sure put us in a unique position. We are very happy that we can strengthen the capabilities of the team through Jo Christian´s knowledge and experience in the media, tech and content industry”, says Christian Teigland, CEO and Co-Founder of Ocean Hub.
