“I love AtmaGo because it gives me a way to help other people. All the other social media is ‘ego media’—look what I am wearing or look what I am doing. AtmaGo is something different.” — AtmaGo User Fajri
Just a few weeks ago, Meena and Nick were in Jakarta, Indonesia to meet with Atma Connect’s Indonesian staff, talk with users and launch the new version of AtmaGo. Pictured above is a group of key users who came out to tell us what they love about AtmaGo—and how we can improve.
Along with holding our first user meeting in Kalibata City, we also met families and small business owners in the low-income neighborhoods of Bukit Duri and Halim—both of which had been inundated by recent floods. What we learned is that smartphone ownership has taken off in Indonesia but that, despite rapid economic growth, the country still faces a host of challenges relating to infrastructure, transportation and economics.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to our first user gathering in Kalibata City— and a special thanks to our Indonesian Field Director, Alfan Rohdi, and our Indonesian Graphic Designer, David Kohriel, for all their great work.
