Create Social
fallback image



Today everyone can connect and get in touch with someone at the click of a button. It is the era of socialites. What social network would you create?

Challenge details

Social networking has taken over most of our lives and completely transformed the way we communicate and keep in touch.

Just when we think "nobody could come up with something better or different", something new takes over.

So we are asking you to create a brand new social network. Think about a real problem you face when trying to keep in touch or meet new people who share the same interests. What could be a great solution? Try to avoid just reinventing Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Vine.

Think about who else would want to use your social network. What would you call it?

The Prize

The winner of the challenge will have the opportunity to experience TCS for a week, by participating in "MISSION YOU". The Mission You programme is for people aged 14-18 and spaces are available in London, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Peterborough . Entrants must ensure that they are available for the duration of Mission You (18th - 22nd August) before applying.
