One last thing... To verify that you're
human, let's put a smile on that face!
Skribblr is a social application allowing you to get more creative with updates you normally share to your networks. Instead of just posting a plain status update, why not compliment those words with a couple of brush strokes? Rather than just sharing a news-article, why not dress it up a bit and tell a much richer story? Take your old photos and make them new again by adding some cool filters or funny captions. Our tools are designed to add more personality into your everyday posts.
The name "Skribblr" originated from the word "Scribble", which is to write or draw hurriedly. Einstein and da Vinci were famous for scribbling down their ideas. Now, it's your turn to unleash that inner creative genius. Whether you're drawing a masterpiece, or if you're just drawing mustaches on the Mona Lisa, you too can showcase your brilliance on Skribblr. Because everyone is creative, everyone should have a chance to express their creativity.
Whether you're a Mom & Pop, restaurant or major brand, we are in the process of providing a fresh new way of advertising unique to our site. Our goal is to let companies join in on the fun and become a part of the community as oppose to a random advertisement. The companies would provide content allowing our users to engage by swapping their earned skribb points. These points are rewarded to our users just for using the site, updating and sharing things they normally would on a daily basis.
