Snacks are spontaneous, time-restricted video conversations with icebreakers.
#snack-clubchannel. You will receive a message with instructions.
/snackcommand in the
#snack-clubchannel and select "Snack Now!" option.
Participants take turns to extend the duration of their Snack by clicking on the "Add x minutes" button at the lower-left hand corner of the video.
Taking turns to extend Snack time ensures that one person never controls Snack duration for extended time.
/snackcommand in the
#snack-clubchannel and select "Recurring Snack Time" option.
Tip: If your team is spread across multiple time zones 🌍🌏🌎, then we suggest to schedule multiple Snack Times, e.g., one for everyone's lunch hours in different time zones.
By default, Snack is activated only
#snack-club. However, you can invite Snack to one of your existing channels (like
#generalor even a private channel).
To use Snack in channels other than
/invite @Snackcommand in the desired channel.
We fight remote fatigue – the feeling of isolation that leads to sadness.
Snack is popular among organizations that care about improving their remote team engagement.
Snack is also used as a networking or icebreaker tool during conferences and other online events.
See our mission.
Snack emulates serendipitous encounters. We believe that limiting the time keeps the interactions attentive & human.
Snack randomly pairs 2 people to have 1-to-1 video conversation. When there is an odd number of participants, one person will not be able to have a Snack for that instance.
But fear not, being the "odd one out" has its perks! We will prioritize matching you with a Snack Buddy in your next Snack Time.
You may also volunteer to be a Tiebreaker.
Snack prioritizes pairing participants who have selected similar interests in their profiles.
Depending on your use case, you could change the pairing mechanism to A/B group pairing instead. This means that participants who have identified themselves as Group A will only be paired with Group B participants.
Admins will define the metrics for Group A vs Group B (e.g. Mentor vs Mentee, Speaker vs Attendee, Employee vs HR, Newcomer vs Team, etc). Participants will select the group that best describes themselves, and they will be matched with participants from the opposite group.
Tiebreakers skip Snack Time where there is an odd number of participants. Their function is to ensure that everyone always has a Snack Buddy.
Anyone can volunteer to be a Tiebreaker by updating their Snack Profile. However, this feature is designed to be used by community managers.
Snack and Donut are both Slack bots that pair people. However, they differ in when, how and what happens after people are matched.
