Ponder was developed by 21-year-old William LeGate and 23-year-old Tyler Mateen. Their aim? "Every post has the potential to be seen by everyone, so it's not a popularity contest of how many followers the person posting has. In essence, we're the first and only platform aimed at democratizing social media, making us the anti-social network," Tyler said. "It really is a positive environment. There are a lot of celebrities and people on other social media platforms that feel like they get bullied because a lot of people comment negative things. But [on Ponder], you only have two options: You can either push or pass on a piece of content so it's positive only."

All you have to do is swipe up ("pushing") if you like the post or swipe down ("passing") if you just want to pass by it. Join Ponder now and make sure you follow Troian Bellisario, Cody Simpson, and Ross Lynch.
