Welcome to Nomad’s listener map, the place where online connections can become offline communities.
In a nutshell
Wrestling with questions and doubts can be a lonely and isolating experience. So Nomad is providing the technology to help you connect with other listeners. Simply register and your profile will appear on the map. Other listeners in your area can then see you on the map and message you. And then, if you like, you can hang out. Easy!
But before you get going, here’s some important details…
What the map is, and what it isn’t
If groups form out of these connections we can’t take responsibility for them, or oversee them in any way. They won’t be ‘Nomad Groups’ — they will simply be groups of people who have Nomad in common. While you may wish to discuss episodes of Nomad in a group, or experiment with Nomad Devotionals and Contemplations, these gatherings are entirely free to become whatever you need them to be.
How it works
When signing up for the first time, simply register your town/city, county/state and country on the map (if you’re in London, enter the area of London in town/city, e.g. ‘Shoreditch’, and ‘London’ as the county). Please fill in all these fields, or the algorithms will get confused and connect you with people all over the place.
Please add a profile picture and a bit of blurb about yourself, so we can feel like we’re connecting with other humans.
You can then search the map to see if there are other registered listeners nearby (you can navigate back to your profile at anytime by clicking on ‘community’ – ‘user profile’ on the menu). You can reach out to other listeners via the messaging service. During the registration process you can also opt in to receive an email when someone new registers in your area. We suggest you add our email address email@example.com to your contacts, so these Listener Map emails don’t go to your junk/spam folder.
If there’s no one in your area yet, don’t worry. Why not also try our Nomad Gathering Facebook group. And head over to our Patreon page, where you can access our closed Facebook group where we’re exploring online community.
If you do meet up with other listeners in your area and decide to form a group, please come back and register again as a Listener Group.
The pin on the map won’t reveal your exact geographic location. It’s only an approximation. And people can only contact you via our messaging service.
It’s as safe as you make it
A lot of people have met through the Listener Map and many friendships and groups have formed, without incident. But obviously platforms like these can be abused. So if you receive a message that leaves you feeling uncomfortable you can block the user and contact admin firstname.lastname@example.org. Meeting up with someone you only know online also carries risks. And while Nomad cannot take responsibility for your safety, your safety is really important to us, so please read and implement our safety guidelines before meeting up with someone.
