Medha Shri has been appointed Head of Customer Success at social media app Wildr. Shri was earlier with os.me, where she worked as the editor-in-chief for the blogging community.
She has also worked as Head of Content and Communications team at Explurger, actor Sonu Sood’s social media app. At Explurger, she was instrumental in launching the app in India and helping it grow.
Shri has more than 15 years of experience working across media houses such as Hindustan Times Media, BCCL (Times of India), and Creative Nest Media, among others. She also writes regularly for various national and international magazines and media houses. At Wildr, she aims to create a safe zone where people can socialise without the fear of trolls.
“You’ll only find love, support and kindness at Wildr. Our sharp AI is trained to block any negative comments. We also have a strong team at the backend that works on appeals from users in real-time. All the learnings from os.me where we curated the kindest corner on the Internet are coming in handy,” said Shri.
Founded by Indian-origin engineers in the US, Wildr has a revenue-sharing system in the works. “We will be the only social media platform that will share the ad revenue with not just content creators but also content consumers,” said Shri.
Wildr creates a safe space for people to network and connect with friends and family. It claims to be the only social media app where users will be able to earn for creating and consuming content. Each user is given a ring around their display picture depending on their behaviour, for instance, those who interact mindfully get a green ring, the others get a yellow and anyone who has indulged in troll-like behaviour gets a red ring barring them from commenting. No trolls or trolling is allowed on the platform.
The team behind Wildr includes CEO and co-founder Vidit Drolia; COO and co-founder Melissa Ravi; and Chief Growth Officer & Co-founder Kunal Lunawat who was a co-founder of VC Fund and investor at Blackstone.
