The platform Boblberg is a digital community platform that allows users to meet others with similar interests such as running mates or new like-minded acquaintances.
In the context of the Covid-19, Boblberg has launched the SnakSammen service. SnakSammen, litteraly "Chat together" in Danish, is a digital visitor service from which users can receive virtual visits. Through a simple and secure virtual chat, they are in contact with a volunteer interlocutor from the Red Cross and can discuss any topic. The service also has the option to activate the camera and see the interlocutor while talking to him/her.
The Snaksammen service was developed by Boblberg and the Red Cross in collaboration with the Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality, but is now available throughout Denmark. It targets the elderly and isolated citizens and aims at reducing loneliness and isolation that have been exacerbated due to the lockdown.
