What is an echo?

"Echoes are words, left by one person at some precise place, that can be later listened to by anyone, as if their author was still there. Echoes can be about anything you want, from history, art or curiosities to personal memories or advices. An echo can even a poem."

There are three ways of locating echoes:
  • Using the Map. Select 'Map' in the 'Explore' tab. A full screen map will appear. Next to the map there will always be a list with the most popular echoes for the region viewed. Zoom in as much as you need to locate the echoes. Remeber that using the search box that comes inside the map is always a shortcut.
  • Browsing the Directory. Select 'Directory' from the 'Explore' tab. The directory allows you to quickly select a location by going through its continent, country, area and finally location.
  • Use the search box. On the top right corner of the page you will find a search box that can help you to quickly locate any echo.
