As any creator will tell you there has been a significant dip in engagement since the first month or two. But before I get into that I just want to thank the creators that stuck around even after the dip especially those who didn’t get accepted into the partner program. That kind of dedication and effort is what I miss from creators anywhere on the internet. So thank you.
Now we all know that byte has been in a steady decline recently and I thought that if we all just keep posting eventually people will join slowly over time. However I’ve noticed that the community has become more creator than audience members and by audience members I mean people who don’t post but are still actively liking and commenting on others. I’m worried that eventually every user that’s on byte will be on there solely to and try to become famous instead of going on there just to be entertained. Because when that happens no ones going to be able gain an audience, not even the byters at the very top regardless of how funny or talented they are.
Now what I’m asking from everyone who’s reading this (because more likely than not you’re a creator too) is ideas for a plan. An actual plan that we can all put into effect to try and bring more people from outside of byte into it. I am especially hoping to call the attention of the really big byters because we will not be able to do it without them. I have some ideas on what we might be able to do but seeing as how I’ve never had a large following on any app I tried to post skits on, I lack the experience and know how to execute such plans.
I am willing to talk to anyone about this but realistically without the support of large and/or partnered creators I don’t think we stand a real chance. I love byte and the creators on here and want them to get the recognition they deserve. I’m worried that if we don’t do something this app will eventually fizzle out and we’ll have nothing to show for it. During this time a lot of us are under quarantine and I feel like it’s the perfect time to do something because we all have the time and energy to come up with something. I have been thinking about this a lot and truly believe that with the help of creators and even the developers we can make this app something great even greater than vine. If you have any ideas or are interested in this in any capacity please let me know I have so much more to talk about and want to learn more about how we can help eachother out. Thank you.
