FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS SHIMMUR?

Shimmur is the go-to place to directly interact with the stars you love. The Shimmur app makes it easier to get REAL responses straight from your favorite social media celebs.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

First step: download the app & sign-up! ;)

Then, here’s how you get noticed on Shimmur:

  1. Find your favorite stars on Shimmur and join their Tribes

  2. Create posts for your Tribe stars to see: ask questions, share stories, post photos, fan art or anything!

  3. Help each other get noticed by UPVOTING the best posts in the Tribe (and other fans will return the favor by upvoting YOUR post to the top!)

  4. The Tribe Leader will see the MOST UPVOTED posts in their Tribe FIRST - so the more upvotes your post gets, the higher the chance that your favorite star will respond!

  5. When the Tribe Leader responds to posts you’ve created OR upvoted, we’ll notify you!

 

WHAT IS A TRIBE?

A Tribe is a star’s inner circle of fans - it’s all their biggest, most loyal fans coming together to interact. Being part of a Tribe is more personal than “following” your favorite stars on other social media - you’re part of their Shimmur Fam and they want to feel closer to each of you!

 

WHAT IS AN "UPVOTE"?

An “upvote” boosts a post to the top of the Tribe. The more upvotes your post gets, the higher it ranks in the feed and the better chance you have of being noticed. The Tribe Leaders will see the most upvoted posts when they log into Shimmur!

 

HOW DO I GET MORE UPVOTES?

Well first, take your time creating thoughtful, original, awesome posts! If other fans like what you post, they’ll all upvote it for you! You can also share links to your posts with friends on Twitter or via text, and they can help you get noticed!

 

WHY DID YOU CALL IT "SHIMMUR"?

Our name comes from the word shimmer, which is defined as 'a soft glint of light'. On its own, a shimmer can get lost in the darkness (just like a single voice in the clutter of social media), but when a group of shimmers come together, the result is a radiant, powerful shine.

Shimmur gives YOU the chance to shine ✨😊

 

WHY DID YOU CALL IT "SHIMMUR"?

Right now Tribes are just for social media stars with a ton of active fans who want to interact. Typically Tribe Leaders on Shimmur have at least 100K followers on another social platform, and see very high engagement on their social posts.
