Best friends: with a GREAT idea!

Donation protected

We're Josh Namm and Charles Haspel. We've been best friends for over 30 years. A few years ago, a few friends of ours were sending us links to articles when we thought "why send links through email just so a few people can see them? It makes more sense for everyone to see these stories right? Definitely." We also realized that when it comes down to it, Twitter is Twitter because of status updates, and Instagram/Pinterest are only about sharing graphics and videos (in totally different ways) but no one created a site to share articles (article sharing, status updates and graphics uplaods are the three principle functions of Facebook).


So we were inspired to change that! On our own, we created "Moptwo." It is the ONLY social media site dedicated to articles only. It is social media with substance.


It's called "Moptwo" because we needed a name that wasn't taken, we love animals and Josh's dog was named Moptwo when he was little kid (Josh still says that he was the best dog that ever lived).


The URL is:


We launched a while ago and have done pretty well with almost no resources. We have hundreds of registered users. They have posted 30,000 articles and those articles have 7 MILLLION article views. But, we want Moptwo to be the social site of choice for a maturing social media audience.


To do that we need to hire more people, get professional ad services and have the resources to spend as much time as possible on the site.

We have no "plan B." We, and our families, are depending on the success of this for our futures and our families' futures. Getting a major social media site off the ground with no resources requires A LOT of energy, and we worried that a "plan B" would be an "escape hatch." We are committed to making this work.
