I’ve not seen a super large amount of talk about Direct Messaging on Byte but from the few searches for posts I’ve done, I know they will be coming. So this won’t be a post about how DM’s should be, instead it’s a simple idea I believe adding to DM’s would make quite fun
First off, I don’t know if there’s any announcement out there about when DM’s would roll out in the first place. I’m in no rush for them to come out and that’s not the point of this post.
But enough of that, onto my idea.
My idea is simple. Make collaborative bytes an option through DM’s
Basically you would start the creation of a byte like normally through the app but instead it would be in a DM to a different friend of yours or even maybe just an acquaintance you’re wanting to collab with.
After you record a little bit. They add a part to that byte by recording from their end.
This would help people create collab bytes who don’t easily have access or know-how for creating collabs outside the app.
Once the byte is created, have both parties approve of the byte.
If there was no system of approval and the byte could be posted outright, it could very well lead to toxic videos being created. And here’s what I mean by that
Imagine you are in a DM making a byte with someone.
You make a script for the byte and start going back and forth recording your parts.
The person you’re working with flips the script and says something completely different than planned. Something that makes you look bad or something disrespectful.
Without the addition of an approval system for the byte you collaboratively created, they could easily post that byte and it not be something you want.
I think this would be something that honestly would be very fun and also set apart the DM’s of Byte in a sort of way. I do realize there are similar functions across different apps. Like how on Instagram you can go live with someone else. But if this is done right I think it could go over really well.
Anyway, just to be clear, I realize DM’s aren’t top priority. That’s fine by me but I still think this would be a really cool idea.
Any and all responses welcome. Do you think it’s a good or bad idea. Ideas for how it could be improved upon. Just let me know what y’all think.
