Several months ago I shared a discussion called Loyal Byter and I gave some tips on becoming your best byter self, so I wanted to extend that a bit here again.
I do not want to incite another wild 500+ comment thread, but I did want to say I just finished reading a Forbes article talking about how many TikTokers make over $1mil and I was astounded, but this article got me thinking about the last booming forum post.
If OG Byters don’t get to be verified on the platform they chose to represent over these last 8 months (and in some cases two years), then they could miss their chance to get their content out there to a broader audience. My OG friends and I gave a lot to creating content on this app alone and it would be unfortunate for our content to get suppressed by the influx of already famous verified users. They have several platforms they’ve built audiences on, so if they bring their audiences to byte, their audience is going to follow them anyway. They don’t need additional spotlights.
I guess all I’m saying is please give us the chance to make ourselves into the creators we aspired to be since the beginning. Anyone who has posted consistently since the first 3-4 months of release should be afforded the opportunity to be verified even if they aren’t famous on TikTok or Instagram.
We’re all trying to make something of ourselves. Help us flourish like we aspired to help this app do for so long.
