Free social media platform

LYKA is a free social media application with an interesting twist. Not only can you share your interests and connect with others, but you’ll earn Gems rewards for various activities. It lets you exchange this currency for goods in any of their partner stores.

What is the LYKA app?

Formerly known as Things I Like, LYKA has been in operation since 2017. It’s a social media platform for connecting with others and sharing your interests, much like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It lets you create group chats while also giving you the ability to separate your connections into family, friends, and other categories.

What are LYKA’s top features?

One of LYKA’s most praised features is Gems. You’ll earn these points for posting, sharing, and engaging with content, with each activity holding a specific value. Once you have enough of these rewards, you can head to the LYKA Mall to redeem Gems for gadgets, food certificates, toys, and more from select partners.

How can I earn in LYKA?

There are several ways in which you can earn LYKA Gems. For instance, merely posting a photo will net you 0.05 Gems, while signing up rewards you with five from the start. An LYKA verification gives you 15,000 GEMS, and other members can also contribute to your stockpile.

How do I log out of LYKA?

If you’re accessing the program from your mobile device, the chances are that you’ll remain logged in even if you close the application. Logging out of LYKA is relatively easy, though, if you follow these few steps:

  • Select your profile photo;
  • Tap on “Settings;”
  • Choose “Log Out.”

Our take

Most social media apps merely let you share posts and connect with friends. LYKA chooses to reward you for your activities with more than just likes and comments. It’s an excellent way to encourage you to engage with your followers, and there are plenty of fun goods to exchange the Gems with in the Mall.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you're willing to try out new social platforms, this app's unique reward system for incentivizing interaction among its community alone is enough of a reason to try it out.
