UMD student launches Turf, a hyperlocal social networking app


TurfLast year, Facebook’s CFO admitted that the social media goliath was losing younger users, a trend that has widely been attributed to the site’s increasing transformation from personal tool to business apparatus. That’s a cautionary tale for any newcomer looking to enter the social space.

In that spirit, a new app called Turf is focusing heavily on ease-of-entry and community-based networking in an effort to cut through the noise and provide users with what they really want: the ability to connect with those around them in a meaningful way.
