Our Story

To date, over 3 million people have visited and over 3,800 donors have contributed funds towards the development of the next generation social media technology.

Since Panquake first discussed a ground breaking idea of a crowdfunded social media application where the users are the customers ‒ not the product ‒ Panquake’s build has achieved a series of major milestones, from network design proof of concept to a fully functioning application interface.

Members of the public have flocked to apply to become Panquake BETA users and Panquake is in its final build phase in order to launch the BETA offering.

Visitors to are:

  1. joining a community dedicated to the delivery of a product which will bring next generation solutions to a market that is hungry for change

  2. successfully crowdfunding to contribute to the product development at, and

  3. spreading the word that things can and will be different.

With Big Tech algorithms, AI moderation and massive data breaches rendering outdated, monopoly platforms obsolete, Panquake offers a vital and timely solution.



Panquake Me makes sharing links safer than ever before. It removes nasty trackers, archives source content and shortens links all in one easy click. It is free to use for members of the public and an enterprise version is in the works. Read the FAQ page for more details, download the press release or if you're a techy, check out our source code at this link.

Founder and Chief Product Officer, Suzie Dawson, said:

For too long journalists, activists and the general public have had to fear the links they share. Never knowing what was really hidden inside the link or whether the content would still be accessible in the future.

Recognising the urgency, we sliced off a piece of the cake of our Panquake technology to bring forward an early release of our application, in the solution that is - a simple, free, link sharing and archive tool in one, that's safe for you to use. This is a big win for internet users the world over, reducing the fear of digital profiling from big corporates and governments who map your networks and track who you share content to.

Panquake Me Metrics

Panquake Me user adoption metrics are outstanding. In November 2023, only 6 weeks after release, it was announced that 86.38% of users visiting were successfully engaging with the product and completing the link creation workflow. The click-to-link ratio was 395.82%, confirming that the links created by users were being circulated online and clicked on by other users. The total domain validation checks performed by our team stood at an impressive 20,483. In April 2024 updated metrics were released: showing 56.52% increase in average daily link creation, virtually no drop-off in visitor-to-user conversion, a vastly improved click-to-link ratio and more than 4x growth in domain validation by our team.
