Shelf Categories: The Shelf is organized into several categories in which you can fine tune your interests based on your likes and dislikes. After you fine tune a specific category, tapping on that category matches you with people around you based on your specific interests.
Chat: Once you find people you match with, you can send a friend request and chat with them.
Matches are important: When scrolling through people around you, the amount they match with you will be obvious by the size of their image. The larger their image is, the more they match you!
Shelf U: Connect with university students at your University or any University around the world. Find students near you with similar academic or social interests. As long as you have a .edu account, Shelf U is at your disposal.
Spot Mode: Make yourself available by bypassing the friend request stage. You will be able to instantly chat with other people who are also in "spot mode".
Specific Matches: Want to look for people around you based on only one specific interest? You can match on specific interests by holding down that interest.
