The Silicon Review
“Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It gives a voice and a platform to anyone willing to engage.” – Amy Jo Martin
Without knowing where you are going, chances are you might get lost. Having goals and working towards them keeps us focused in life as we continuously thrive and learn along the way. They can help us with being more organized, resourceful, and provide us clarity of what we are trying to achieve. By writing a goal down, you begin to realize it. Goal writing helps when developing a goal plan, and by connecting with others to share goals, it becomes a collaborative take on fulfilling your objectives when you receive new ideas and advice that can make your goals appear more actionable than before.
Based out of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, Linkagoal is a goal-based social network that combines the power of social networking and crowd-sourcing to help people connect, track and better support one another through the entire goal-making process. It works on a simple yet powerful concept of Create, Link and Contribute. The site allows its members to write goals (Create), connect with common goals and aspirations (Link), and help them achieve their goal (Contribute). Linkagoal is based on the belief that the lack of resources, guidance, experience, accountability, and encouragement hinder people from achieving their goals – so why not help them.
Linkagoal’s Social Network
On Linkagoal’s social network, goal-setters can create profiles, set actionable goals with interactive timelines to track milestones, and connect with others for motivation, and support in their own personal or collective endeavors. LinksFeed builds a micro community around similar goals and its users are truly benefitted by receiving purposeful content that helps achieving their life goals. For those that are more vocal about their accomplishments, they can opt to be a guide for other goal-setters by adding advice and personal insight to help other’s with a goal.

The Road Ahead
User growth and experience have been the main drivers in Linkagoal’s recent revamp. It is essential that the platform’s robustness and scalability can support the growing Linkagoal community. In its new release, the company has added features such as the ability to stay connected with others via messaging, an interactive timeline for setting actionable goals and dedicated milestone, and more customization settings to personalizing profiles with video bios. In anticipation of high user growth, monetization is the primary focus to roll out in late 2016 along with mentorship services, rewards and goal campaign features.
