In order to improve the user experience in Duby, we are currently fixing issues involving duplicate photos/videos. Your Duby images which were voted on multiple times (by one user) will see a decrease in score as a result. We apologize for the inconvenience, but don’t worry your score will increase with future votes!!! 🙂
Everything you share is called a Duby and is passed to users nearest you.
The users who receive the Duby can pass it on or put it out, but how many people it gets passed to each time depends on your Duby Influence.
The more popular your Duby’s are the more people they are passed to next time.
Duby is a Gamified Social Network
- We mixed a game with a traditional social network.
- The quality of your content, not the quantity, is more important.
- The more your content is passed, or “liked” by others users, the higher your Influence Score.
- A player with a higher Influence Score passes Dubys to more users, making them powerful, or “Influential”.
- Users have followers like other networks, but the Duby Influence Score is unique and will fluctuate based on quality and frequency of content published.
- The end result is a fun way to socialize and an assurance that top users must consistently produce quality content to stay on top.
Users can ensure complete anonymity by using a username and avatar image that do not reveal any identifying information. Some users may wish to use their name/pseudonym and real photographs, this is at the discretion of the user.
The best Dubys are high quality, well lit, and show you (and friends) in your natural environment so other users can see what using Cannabis looks like to you. Originality is key to trend and, of course, show pictures containing cannabis.
Personal Influence – Represents how many users you pass Dubys to. It increases or decreases depending on your activity and popularity.
Duby Influence – How many users a duby has been shared with. It increases by users passing the duby, but will never decrease.
A Featured Duby is the best Duby of the day. It can be an image or video, and is hand selected by the Duby staff daily.
- Being a daily user and creating great Dubys will give you the best chance of being Featured.
- You will be notified in app via your notifications screen, and the Duby that gets featured will be watermarked.
A Duby Story is a Private Message sent to all of your followers (versus sent anonymously to nearby users like a regular Duby).
Private Dubys, whether sent to all followers or just one other user, expire and are completely private… think Snapchat style.

Yes! Dubys that are “shared with you” by users near you appear on your Home Screen.
However, in the Search Screen (Duby Explorer) you can pass Dubys to users near you that are from anywhere in the world and start a new trend in your area.
Remember: Duby requires “a” location (not your exact location) so you get content nearest you automatically, and anonymously.
You are free to set a location manually in settings to another location to protect your privacy.
Audio problems are usually just the mute switch on the side of an iPhone or a broken speaker.

Duby requires a location, but it does not need to be your actual location.
Duby does not use your actual location unless it is explicitly allowed by the user. Upon account creation your profile is assigned a random default location. This is a temporary default for new users and after entering your profile you will have the option of automatically using your gps location or a manual location of your choice.
You have two choices in setting your location:
1. Automatic location – Allows Duby to detect your location and update your profile to your current city and state.
2. Manual location – Allows you to set a fixed location anywhere in the world.
You can send a Private Duby by visiting another user’s profile page and selecting “CHAT“.
You may also “Reply” to another users private message to you, from your Activity page, but only if they have sent you a private message in advance.
Duby messages are sent with an image attached. Uploading or taking a picture then adding text by touching the ABC✍ in the top right hand corner of the screen.
NOTE: In order to send private messages between users requires that users be following each other. This is for your protection to prevent spam and allow for blocking of users by simply unfollowing.
From the Duby Explorer, Click on the search bar and enter #vid to see all of the most recent Duby videos.
This probably means you are using an iPad. The duby app does not officially support the iPad at the moment and therefore it will run in iPhone mode which can cause images to look pixelated.
Images uploaded from an iPad will be in low resolution until we have developed the official iPad version.
