Feel a connection with the people closest to you.
Uchi is a social platform (not a social media) that makes conversations easier. Feeling connected is not about how many followers you have and “going viral”. It’s about connecting authentically with the people who matter most to you. It is your uchi that has the greatest impact in your life.
Uchi ( /ü-CHē/ ) means “in-group” or “inner circle”, in Japanese.
My 12-year old daughter had not spoken to my ex-wife in more than a year. Within a week of using the Uchi platform, they’ve started talking again. Thank you!

uchiTribe is an excellent team building activity that helped us shift from “me” to “we” thinking. It was a great way to refocus from the stresses or work to learning about our coworkers and building connection by getting to know each other in ways that wouldn’t always come up in the context of the usual day to day small talk.

Uchi may be the easiest EdTech I’ve ever reviewed and approved.

I thought this experience behooved our team immensely as I was able to gain some insight into what my team members are like outside of the classroom. Sure, we communicate in our breakout rooms about the upcoming assignments and project, but this gave me an opportunity to get to know my teammates on a different level. Since class is predominately online, there is not much networking to be done, but communicating on Uchi gives us a chance to form friendships with our peers by answering interesting and thought-provoking questions.

The best things in life require effort. Aren’t your relationships worth it?
Uchi is like a gym for your relationships, but a lot easier.
Uchi helps get real conversations started by asking questions. It’s like those card decks of questions but Uchi is available 24/7/365 from anywhere in the world! The questions are like the exercise equipment at the gym. When you do the work, you’ll get the benefits.
You don’t have to wait until you’re together and in-person, to connect. With Uchi, you can feel a real connection even if you’re not in the same place.
In fact, it’s often easier to share your unique perspective in writing than when speaking, in-person. This is why letter-writing and books have been so effective for 2500 years!
WHAT MAKES UCHI SPECIAL?
Safe. Private. Secure. We Don’t Collect Your Data.
No ads. No user search. No profiles since you know your uchi. Your “Feed” has no algorithm. It consists of ONLY your uchi’s answers and comments and is delivered in chronological order. That’s it. Say goodbye to all the ads, noise, cyberbullying, trolls, and predators.
Your Words Matter Most
Uchi uses the power of written conversation. Pictures and videos often don’t tell the whole story even if they’re easier. But sharing your perspectives, in your own words, tells the real story. Afterall, the book is always better than the movie, right?
True Two-Way Connection
A big problem with social media is you can consume content without sharing anything. The only way to have a real connection is if both people are sharing and listening. Uchi makes it easy and in order to read one of your uchi’s answers or comments, you must first answer that question. Reciprocity is our #1 rule!
Quality Not Quantity – Take Your Time
How often do we think of exactly what we want to say, when we want to say it? What are we really feeling? When we slow down to read and write, we become better listeners and communicators. Ten minutes a day using Uchi will help you feel more connected to the people who matter to you than hours of scrolling on social media. That means less screen time and getting what you really want, connection.
“I’ve been off FB and IG for a while now; the posturing of connection there got to me and stoked more anxiety than community. Uchi, on the other hand, has been a compelling way to deepen relationships. It feels real, thoughtful, and without the performative aspect of social media.”
