Meet :space_friend: aka Space Friend

We want to tell you a story…

As we started planning Social Media Pulse in 2021, we knew we wanted a theme and mascot strong enough to build a constantly evolving community around — something that could grow along with us for years and years.

After searching high and low — rejecting everything from the ocean to the jungle — we landed on the spacey theme you’ve seen these last several months! :rocket::rocket::rocket:

How did we get there? It all started with the mascot.

After tons of research and design back-and-forth, we fell in love with and adopted the creature we endearingly called “Space Friend” :space_friend: as our official mascot.

We had no real plan to keep that name, BUT the team couldn’t agree on anything … other than the fact that we kinda liked Space Friend, and maybe … it was the name!!!

So, while you’ve seen our mascot and maybe thought about it a little bit — you haven’t been formally introduced. And we’re here, today, to remedy that.

So please welcome the compadre we consider such a vital member of the Social Media Pulse team — and, if we do our jobs right, hopefully, you’ll consider Space Friend a vital member of your team, too!
