ShareChat, is an Indian social media platform developed by Mohalla Tech Pvt Ltd. and founded by Ankush Sachdeva, Bhanu Pratap Singh and Farid Ahsan. It was incorporated by Mohalla Tech Pvt Ltd on 8 January 2015. As of 2019, ShareChat has over 60 million monthly active users across 15 languages in India a. The company’s application offers features that include private messaging, tagging and a personal messaging feature, enabling users to share videos, jokes, songs and other vernacular based social content with other unknown users. Sharechat was designed to make it easy to share content from the platform on to WhatsApp. It was designed to work on even the poorest connections – “wherever WhatsApp works” – and initially, its users were mostly sending text updates.
This app can be used by people from remote places to solicit business. Astrologers, plumbers, tailors, carpenters, electricians, beauticians, home chefs and so many other home based, local and regional professionals are able to promote their wares, posting their phone numbers and picking up orders offline with the help of the app. There is no doubt that this is a very helpful app for the Indian audience.
Language is not a barrier here as well.To change the language,we need to click on the present language (next to your profile picture) on the top-left. We can select our preferred language in this application.
Initially, ShareChat primarily worked as a content sharing platform, without any scope of users generating their own content. In April 2016, ShareChat enabled user-generated content creation on its platform, allowing its users to share their own posters and creative content. At around the same time, it also introduced open tagging for users, which would allow anyone to create their own hashtags depending on the content.

Share Chat App is also a medium to earn money – per refer it is Rs. 15 instantly. When we signed into the app, we chose Hindi, and were taken to a trending feed showing the popular updates in Hindi. You can’t change your language settings, which means that the only way you’re going to see content in other languages – and many people in India are trilingual, or speak even more languages than that – is to follow someone using that language. A Hindi user could add a friend who is a Punjabi user, for example, or a Tamil user, and then see those people’s posts.
