Yandex.Aura selects companions and communities by analyzing the interests of the user. It recommends friends with similar interests and those who live nearby. The friends feed is formed by AI. The privacy settings allow to manage the access to the posts for other people.
The social network has five tabs: feed, list of communities by interests, form for creating a new post, notifications and menu with settings. Aura has communities divided by interests, where the user can share his impressions, ask for advice or leave comments to the other users’ posts.
In August 2020, Yandex announced that the project will be closed in its current form.
