PLEASE DO NOT FLAG THIS
Might belong in Idea Category; This is simply an idea running off of this topic:
With Vine, it seemed like a lot of people were concentrated on making content rather than creating a better community. A way I think we can combat this after the v2 release is having a start-up tutorial type thingy. When a user signs up, they can go through a basic tutorial. Once finished with that, they can complete different tasks to unlock new features and earn badges (or something along the lines of that). These tasks could be:
- Liking 100 videos
- Reposting 70 videos
- Follow 25 other accounts
- Add 20 friends
- Comment on 30 videos
The tasks can strictly be based around connecting and growing the community or can also stretch out to be fun tasks (Ex. Completely designing your profile)
It may only help make v2 welcoming for a while, but it may get people into the habit of connecting to others more.
Thanks for reading, let me know what you guys think!
