The future of social is multiplayer
Thank you for sharing great insights all the time, Josh!
As I'm an international founder who failed once before, I really resonated with this article!
Here's a list of my highlights that I really resonated with from this article and my notes:
>> A true social network doesn’t just make consumption social (Likes, comments, reshares), but makes creation social too by insisting on collaboration.
✍️ Note: Multiplayer is the future of social app
>> Profiles don’t show how many followers someone has. [...] the goal is having fun, not world domination.
✍️ Note: I like the concept that tries to focus on what matters more than social capitals. Status as a service is an interesting concept though.
>> The Future Of Social Is Multiplayer
✍️ Note: I think so too!
Thank you again for sharing this!
the future isn't "multiplayer," it's "metaplayer" mode. it's "both / and".
It's pretty sad that even an app that downplays self-promotion is all about self-adulation. Still, it's a smart angle from which to approach the market but not likely a sustainable or massively scalable one.
If I save one of my friend's pics on their profile does it notify them?
So Signalfire didn't get in on them?
Didn't you learn ANYTHING from Michael Arrington?
Use your position of power and influence to hype a startup and get them #1 WITH A BULLET to the Top of the Charts - but only after you've bought in on that startup, at a great low-valuation price.
With this simple model - you'll go far.
Honestly, a super well thought out concept and also super well executed. Supper bullish on it being able to grow fast and retain users!
