    A friend from Oberlin College posts to Facebook, "There has got to be another way, personally and professionally, to keep in touch with all you wonderful people besides Facebook."

  • Mar 2018

  • Dec 2017 - Mar 2018

    Tobin’s experience as a content marketing expert in Facebook’s sprawling, chaotic publishing environment combines with the social deterioration Facebook was causing in society to transform Unpublished.Space into USpace.

    Tobin envisions giving valuable content a much better context. This desire merges with the idea of private access blogs and the first version of USpace is born in sketches.

  • Nov 2017

    Tobin purchases www.Unpublished.Space for 99¢ with an idea to host unpublished manuscripts by author friends with access controlled by the author - a kind of cluster of private blogs with authors controlling who has access.

    This is the idea that eventually becomes USpace, where every member can share sensitive and essential content with safety, security, and privacy baked in from the start.
