Sharing stories go back to the beginning of time.

πŸ’¬ They communicate our values and reflect how we form connections naturally!

⚑️ Stories capture things we have in common or what we're curious about.

πŸ“ Shuffl Bios helps share your story to everyone in your new Shuffl group!

🧊 Instantly and naturally form icebreakers before getting together for your activity.

✨ Once set, it magically accompanies every intro at shuffl time: voilà!


If you prefer to toggle Bios and Intros off, instructions are at the end of this article.


Feature Demo

I am logged in as Matthew:

πŸŽ‰ It's shuffl time! A new group DM appears! Clicking into it, I've been shuffl'd with Lauren, Chris, and Leslie. Instantly, I can read their bios and get to know them.

This helps personalize the experience and introduces a little familiarity before we meet on a video call or get together for an activity. Brilliant!

If it is my first-time shufflin' or if I haven't set my Bio yet, Shuffl will send a contextual private message!

Clicking "Setup your Shuffl Bio" opens a new window. Now, I can fill out my bio and it'll be ready for the next shuffl!

Shuffl Bios is an easy, fun and smart way to get to know each other by sharing stories with every new shuffl group.
