Peach (social network)

Operating system iOS, Android[1]
Platform social networking mobile application

Peel is a mobile application-based social network created by Dom Hofmann.[2] Peach is available as an Android and iOS application. Hoffman is a co-founder of Vine. It was introduced at the January 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.[3]

Peach has been compared to Ello, Path, and[2][4][5][3]

Peach has "magic words," which have been compared to Slack's similar slash shortcuts.[2][6] These allow the user to access commonly used functions such as typing the letter "g" to send a GIF or "c" to bring up a calendar, similar to a command line interface.[6]

Peach eschews the traditional news feed, hashtagging, and tagging common to social networks.[4] The editor-in-chief of The Next Web described Peach as a hybrid of Twitter and Slack, while noting that some users of the social network were creating fake celebrity accounts.[7] Bloomberg Business noted that when it was introduced, "[e]verything about Peach... seemed hip, down to the URL", but that by the end of the month it appeared that "interest in Peach softened".[3]
