Online social media platform designed for creativity and collaboration:
All those hours you spend finding the right words, the mixtape you could not record fast enough, and the apples you carefully peeled for the birthday pie, are all gestures of care expressed in creativity. The endeavour is not always easy, but that’s what makes it personal and true.
We believe that when you dedicate yourself to making something special, that’s an act of beauty, an artistic moment. We love these moments. We wish they would happen more often. That’s why we are building To Be.
To Be provides a space and a set of tools to compose with all the senses of the internet, in a setting as private or open as you want. Where creators and dreamers can make things together for themselves, for others, for everyone.
Open a field, drop in images, add songs, paint something, invite a friend or two, find new meaning and make it yours.
Certainly a great amount of potential here - each post is a ‘field’ to place images, videos, music etc in a collage-like way … Impressed to see the GIF file limit at 9MB (so could be a good solution for hosting large files). Each field is zoomable and manoeuvrable in a straightforward manner.
You can even invite other users to create something in these spaces, such as this gif collage here. There is also a collaborative drawing mode.
It is currently in beta, but you can reserve your username at present. If you are lucky, you may even get the chance to sign up for a beta account (like I did).

They even have a Tumblr blog featuring highlight examples here
