A Chat Feature for V2
Considering that V2 is a social media platform, I wouldn’t consider abnormal for it to have a chat feature. Actually, I would consider it abnormal if it didn’t have one.
How would this chat feature work?
My idea is similar to that of other applications, either a top corner menu button or a tab at the bottom of the screen with a mailbox symbol or a paper airplane symbol. Chats would be a great feature to have if Artist want to keep in touch with each other without having to distribute their personal info. This can help create group collaborations and bring people closer together, even the community!
Features of this feature
If one ends up being a popular user, it can be a hassle having to go through a lot of DMS/chats in a day trying to find the one you actually want to see, that is why I want to implement one important feature:
**“Only Artist you follow can message you.” **○
This little feature can change the way the app works completely, big time Artist will now only be able to talk to the people they really want to talk to. But don’t worry, this feature can be enabled for the small beginning artist too, or even if one just is a small artist!
At this point, everyone knows that the majority population hates spam mail, so why have spam in your inbox?
But what about the little guys? What about the fans?
I also want to propose the idea of a fanmail/fanbox tab for Artist, small or big. This allows the Artist to see the small messages or big ones that have been sent to them by their Fans.
(On that note, since V2 users are referred to as Artist, I believe their followers should be called Fans)
The Artist can then interact with said Fans in that same fanmail/fanbox tab/section so that they can keep priority mail and fan mail separate and organized!
