Anonymously launch, pump and pop,
and see what takes-off.

We noticed a problem.

Current social media platforms are limiting, selfish, and repetitive. They induce anxiety. There is no separation of professional and personal. And, only those with the loudest voices and largest online followings are heard.

Meet Baloonr,
where all content and ideas are created equal.

Share your content and ideas for review without the worry of them being linked to your name. You are in control.

Review content and ideas that come from anyone and everywhere – not just from your friends or your social networks. You decide what gets pumped and what gets popped.

View high-quality, diverse content. You see the most pumped up content and ideas, as they are taking-off.

Share content and ideas that have taken-off. You make the things you like go viral.

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!” – Dr. Seuss

How It Works

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” – Vincent Van Gogh
