Social networking services bring people together, but they do not necessarily ensure close friendship. Without face-to-face communication which guarantees intimacy and close bonding, people are still drifting apart with friends, even though we can know exactly what our friends are doing through their microblogs or WeChat moments.

Firefly, an events social app developed by Shanghai-based startup Guanxi. Inc., aims to restore traditional interpersonal relationships by allowing users to invite friends to participate in offline events together, like concerts, exhibitions, parties, so as to facilitate regular face-to-face interaction between humans.

The app will recommend offline activities based on the event categories pre-set by the users. It also allows one-click sharing or invitation to friends to join the activities together.
