RE: State of Hive - Let's Talk About It

in Threespeak - OLD10 months ago

Onboarding for communities! I am determined to onboard thousands of new users this year. Working on bringing language exchange to Hive now, I'm sure many will end up being 3speak users :-D

Speaking of scrutinizing:
I like how you are incentivizing people to get off youtube completely, but i think we need to be understanding and accommodating to youtubers who aren't ready to risk their entire following.

For many of them, we can get them to double post first, then get them talking about hive, then get them investing in hive, and then get them to quit youtube :-D I think many more will come to 3speak this way. I think most of them will switch over completely within a few months and bring a lot of their followers too

Hope everything is alright with you btw

Will they be active after a few months? I saw many people leaving both the Steem blockchain and the Hive blockchain due to their disappointment. Most of the users are focusing only on their own posts, and they do not care about other people's posts. Most of the people are selfish and greedy. There are a lot of content creators, but almost no content consumers. Most of the Steem blockchain and Hive blockchain posts are ignored/overlooked. The real human comments are rare both on the Steem blockchain and on the Hive blockchain. This is what leads to many disappointed users, who eventually leave the platform. Most of the people are ruining both of the blockchains with their selfishness and greed. Most of the users are not grown up to this technology.

And seems like your comment is a living sample of what you are saying. Isn't it?

Thank goodness I'm still a content consumer too!! };)

That's one way to look at it, but I don't see the use in being so pessimistic. People have lives. No one exists just to read your content. It takes a lot of work to be both a content creator and a content consumer, and we still aren't able to support people making a living off being at hive. There is also a lot of good content (and sometimes not so good content) to get lost in and we all spread ourselves very thin attempting to be both creators and consumers.

So there are two answers, we try to encourage people to be both creator and consumer and we all do our best and accept that people are going to be consuming less because they are creating more.

The other answer is trying to incentivize content consumption which gets dangerous because it's easy to game. We already have 50% curation rewards....what else do you propose?

Maybe the real problem is that we are both engaging on Dan's post instead of each others.

I honestly think the problem is that we don't have enough users. The community is quite decent if you don't pay attention to the worst of it. Like I said, no one exists to consume your content, and most people want to be creative more than they want to consume, so?

Keeping users will be much easier now because rewards are being spread much more than before and bidbots are mostly gone.

I did not wrote that anyone should consume my (or anyone else's) content. I write that people should consume more content in general, because nowadays most of the Steem blockchain and Hive blockchain posts are ignored/overlooked. Not just/only my posts on these blockchains, but posts in general on these blockchains. I am not pessimistic, just/only realistic. I see a lot of disappointed users. If people have time to write (sometimes multiple) post(s) per day, then why they do not have time to read (and comment under) other people's posts?

"If people have time to write (sometimes multiple) post(s) per day, then why they do not have time to read (and comment under) other people's posts?" -- there is only so much time and energy in the day, and posting is incentivized more than commenting. It really is that simple, and of course, Hive and Steem have a lot of users who frankly need the money around the world, and that need is growing because of the pandemic.
