What is Revolver?
Revolver is a social network platform that allows anyone to easily create an online community or join an existing community.
By uploading digital content such as text, pictures, and video, and sharing it with friends, you can find new friends and interests.
Current, top musicians such as Kumi Koda, Anna Tsuchiya, Tomomi Itano, and writer and opinion leader Yasuo Tanaka are using Revolver and their original communities to interact with fans.
You can use Revolver to create a school circle or class community, a citizen's group or corporation user community, or a fan club for a rock band. It's up to you.

A/B Test? Yes or No?
Revolver has a function that allows you to post A or B, or Yes or No two-choice questions. You can post them along with articles and utilize the site for user-based polls.
Automatic Posting to Facebook page and Twitter
The owner of a Community can automatically post their content to their Facebook and Twitter simultaneously in real-time. It is possible to fully automate your Facebook page and Twitter account. It is a useful function that should be called a Social Hub.
The owner of a Community can easily manage their Community with the "Revolver Manager" function.
It allows you to register or freeze users, edit the content of articles, and set banned words.
Revolver Manager's Insight gives you access to the number of registered users, percentage of active uses, gender ratio, age distribution, etc.
This information is very useful for marketing purposes.
Revolver allows you to create Open type communities which anyone can view without logging in (posting and commenting requires login), and Closed type communities which require users to log in.
Open types are good for product galleries and for announcements. Closed types are good for normal communities.
Three types of User Account
Each user has either an owner, staff, or member account. For example, a classroom community would have the each as an owner, parents as staff, and students as members. For example, a rock band's fan club would have the band members as owners, the staff as staff, and the fans as members, leading to smooth operation of the community.
A new Kind of Blog.
The owner of a community has complete control of the activities of its registered users. It is possible to set it so only the operators can post content, while the users simply browse, comment, and rate content. This allows you to utilize Revolver as a new kind of blog.
Registration-based, or Invitation-Only? [ENTERPRISE]
Revolver provides two types of user registration systems, Registration-based, which allows anyone who registers to join, and Invitation-Only, which only allows people you invite to join.
