What’s an Amino?

There are many internet community apps out there, and I’ve found a great one called Amino. Amino is basically what would happen if you combined Facebook and Tumblr into one big app. There are different ones, for all different kinds of interests.

How do you get on it? It’s a mobile app. You can download specific communities on the app store of your choice, or you can just do what I do and get the app, and then you have a whole bunch of the aminos in a menu. I’m currently on the Autistic and Aspie, Catholic, DC, Doctor Who, Equestria, Nostalgia Critic, Rock, and Wrestling Aminos. You can either use your real name or make up a username. (I’m Rock Lobster.)

When you check in, you have several options. You can post a blog, add to the favorites catalog, poll users, ask questions, or quiz. The Catalog is my favorite option. For instance, in the Rock Amino, you can add favorite bands or albums. In the ones geared towards a specific TV show, you can add your favorite characters, or if you’re a fanfic writer, you can add original characters.

The people in charge of the amino communities are called Curators or Leaders. You can follow members just like on Facebook or Twitter. The Front Page shows you the articles that currently have the most views. You can also post links to online articles if you like.

So, give it a try. You might find a whole new thing to enjoy! And look me up too.
