Flunx Areas - Shared value for your community

A community, a learning organisation. Highly dynamic with enormous potential. Realize and profit.

What does the Flunx app do?
The Flunx app helps people to find each other by way of common interests and topics (within topic areas or outside of them). In this way, they discover countless starting points for further interaction, which can be used instantly for mutual benefit. For more information on the Flunx app, please visit www.flunx.com.
What advantages does the Flunx app offer our organisation in combination with a topic area?
Does your organisation have employees or registered users, current members or alumni, conference participants or trade fair visitors? Is your organisation involved in some really exciting activities? Perfect. Flunx areas will help you to further improve and enhance the operative effectiveness of your learning organisation or community:
Your topic areas are not visible or accessible to outsiders. They can only be viewed by the parties involved.
Countless small and large topics become visible to those who have the same or similar interests. For this reason, people with the same interests can find each other immediately. It creates an environment for shared value – for what helps individual people, ultimately benefits all, and your entire organisation profits from it.
As the operator of a topic area, you can identify the hot issues and trends in your community.
What other options are available?
  • Reports module - Compiling facts and figures from an area
  • Hashtag module - Central blocking of undesirable terms
  • Info module - Feeding appropriate information and links into hit lists
  • Licence module - Operation and management of the Flunx technology on own server
How does a topic area work from the point of view of our users?
Imagine you have an idea be it large or small, a question, helpful suggestions on or interest in a particular topic that is relevant to your organisation. Let’s assume you write a flunx about it and post it in your topic area.
On the basis of your post, the Flunx app lists the current entries of other users in your area who match your post because of the same or similar hashtags. Naturally, your flunx is also displayed in the hit lists of other users if your hashtags correspond to their entries.
If you found a particularly interesting and helpful flunx in your hit list, then you would respond to the writer of that flunx. Initially, you might only want to get a feel for how others react to your idea. Or you might like a quick reply to your question.
If this brief chat proves fruitful, you might then introduce yourself using the “Hello button”. If the other user responds with a confirmation, you become “Favourites”, and the valuable contact continues. From then on you can also connect with each other directly.
Do our topic areas have to be moderated?
No. There is no need to moderate a topic area. Flunx follows the principle of self-organisation.
If a user finds a flunx interesting, s/he would get in touch with the writer. On the other hand, non-relevant entries receive little or no response; they expire and are permanently deleted from the server.
Your own expired flunx remain on your smartphone so that you may edit and re-post them at a later time if required.
How do our users reach our topic area?

Blutetooth transmitter

The community is informed about the usage location (Flunx Point) of the transmitter. Your users in the vicinity activate Bluetooth on their smartphones for a short time and after receiving the signal switch it off again. Now they are permanently linked to the area, irrespective of where in the world they are afterwards.
Does your organisation have multiple locations? The transmitters should be installed at all locations in order to enable access to the same topic area.

QR code

Different methods can be used depending on the scenario.

a) General QR code for everyone: This QR code can be shared quickly and easily, e.g. via email or social media. Anyone can scan the code to reach the topic area.

b) Specific QR code for each person: These QR codes are all different. Each code is issued to a specific person. These codes only work once, i.e. once they have been scanned and validated, they can no longer be used.


QR codes are scanned using the Flunx app.

F3-L5-U5-N8-X5

The key is entered in the Flunx app, and the smartphone immediately displays your topic area. As in the case of QR codes, we distinguish between general and specific keys.
Why can’t I see the identity of the person writing the flunx in the hit list itself?
Employees, e.g. in organisations, are encouraged to connect with each other even if they belong to different departments or organisational levels.
Otherwise, many good ideas, important know-how, and countless suggestions for improvement could be lost. However, you might want to unearth these hidden gems yourself. For this reason, the initial focus is only on the operative topic for which contact was established. The users can then introduce themselves in the chat.
Is communication via Flunx encrypted?
Of course! All chats are encrypted. Only the chat partners can read the messages. You can find further information on privacy and security on the Flunx app website.
I have specific questions regarding the Flunx app and the topic areas. Is there a knowledge base available?
Yes. For answers to your specific questions, please visit the Flunx knowledge base. You will also find our contact form there.
How do we avoid undesirable entries?
Block hashtags: every user can block hashtags. If a flunx contains blocked hashtags, it will not appear on your hit list.
Block users: every user can block other users. Flunxes by blocked users no longer appear on your hit list.
Report users: anyone can report the flunx of another user to the server. After a specific number of notifications, the user in question receives an email with a notice that other users are frequently objecting to his/her entries. If this user’s entries continue to be reported, then his/her account will be deleted.
