So Byte is gonna do its thing and it’s clearly going to be a TON of fun. I’m really excited and I think it’s definitely going to be a great place to be… at least to start.
The main thing I’m worried about is that a lot of people will be extremely hesitant to download the app.
The biggest thing that will keep most people from downloading Byte is their worry that it’s just going to be a “wannabe” vine. That people are just trying to relive the glory days of what once was, and this app to them will share the same fate and have to get shut down.
The second biggest thing that will keep most people from downloading Byte is the fear that it will be cringy like Tik Tok.
Our job once Byte is to make SUPER sure that we are in it for the right reasons. We just have to stay genuine and do our own thing. If we try too hard to recreate vine it might push potential users away. We need to form a welcoming, diverse, non-cringey community. Which is essentially what we already have! We just have to persevere and nurture the community within the app.
Just my 2¢, and my main worry. People LOVED vine. It was huge. This app can be great too, but for its own unique reasons.
