Since I started making friends and talking to people on here, I’ve heard a lot of creators say something like, “I’m gonna make a second account for my not-edited/less planned/candid content”, ex: @zaxbyte for Kevin Saxby. People who prefer to make more edited/planned out content, like me, want to post more candid content too, but hesitate because it doesn’t “fit our style” so to speak. Then we make second accounts for this purpose but only end up using them for like a few weeks (because switching accounts is awful).
A great place for this more candid, off the cusp content would be profile stories, like on Instagram/Facebook/Snapchat/almost every other social platform. It would create more space and more motivation for content among these types of creators, as well as others. This would let creators more directly interact with the goings-on of the app, motivate non-creator/spectator accounts to start making content, create more content in general, and keep people on the app longer.
Being able to switch between accounts without having to log out/in all the time would be great too, for the creators who use 2 accounts for this, or other purposes.
DM’s And a Live feature would also keep people on the app longer, which will DRASTICALLY help grow the app user base. There’s a lot of disgruntlement going on about copying TikTok too much/at all. I don’t think implementing any of these features would count as copying TikTok, even though TT has them, because almost every other platform has these features too, and at this point they’re pretty much necessary for any social platform (and for good reason).
Byte Dev team, we know you all have a priority list of developments in the works, but consider bumping these ones up a bit, if you haven’t already. These features are crucial to apps that keep people on them for long periods of time. Get people to stay on the app longer = more people making more content = Byte grows.
Thanks for your time. Sorry that was kinda long.
