Mylivn, a Munich, Germany-based social network, raised €5.5m in seed funding.
The backers were not disclosed.
The company is using the funds to continue to expand operations and its development efforts, with the addition of new features.
Founded in 2015 by Lars Luethke, Mylivn is a social network which allows people to design their own social networking universe to connect and share in a way that fits all parts of who they really are.
On Mylivn, users can create an unlimited number of private and public group channels. In each of them, they can create a story, post photos and videos in a common feed, and even share their footprints on a map. An interactive map shows local posts, stories and businesses.
The company has just launched its app, which is now available for iOS users globally.
