RE: What do we want from content?

in #hive2 years ago

I'm a multi-faceted content creator/performer, and what really hooked me onto Steem back in the day was the engagement.
I uploaded a cool music video I made the other day. I don't fully yet understand communities, but feel like communities is key.
I have posted my video, and put it on threespeak, but can I repost it or share it with the music community somehow?
I think unlocking and building communities is the way forward, but I'm still scratching my head at how it works, or how to utilize it. Like some sort of way to just post, and also cross post it to different relevant communities would be sweet. Maybe that is already possible. I don't know, but I am going to HIVE more frequently until I get the ins and outs of it.

Also we need more people which will come with time. Is there any sort of Discord for HIVE? I would like to see, discuss marketing ideas, and how to grow our global influence.

Long live HIVE!

Great feedback, thank you!

First, yes there is a Hive discord and it’s full of helpful people - https://discord.gg/Uk9kDY

I hope one day we will have a help desk/Q&A community that can replace discord but for now it’s a great tool.

Peakd.com does offer cross posting but I’m not exactly sure how it works with 3speak. I would imagine you could login into peaked and cross post your 3speak post.. but discord would be a good place to ask this.

I also agree that communities or some type of organization of content is vital for it to be seen, as currently it’s very hard to find what you are looking for. I’d also like to see an incentive for creators like yourself to build an audience .. that would be the goal imo.

I am a polymath and relatively a bit anti-social. I think that a lot of excellent creators are somewhat anti-social, as they are possessed by a genie who drives them to constantly create. They have less energy than other people to socialize.

If the system is designed for creators to build an audience, it will be generally the mediocre-good "bubbly" content creators who rise to the top, excluding the anti-social outliers/cream of the crop.
I was very fortunate when I first started Steem, due to being seen by curators who upvoted, and resteemed me, giving visibility for others to see my works.

I have put on a lot of theatre performances for example, and I always use a different production company name, and never try to create a following, so the audience won't know what to expect, and will be blown away by the performance (letting the performance speak for itself). It isn't in my nature to build followings, and I don't think I can be incentivized to go against my own nature. And I believe this to be the same for a lot of creators who fail to get recognized on HIVE, and on Steem. It just isn't in them to bring people to their content, when they are chiefly or solely driven about producing content. To make it about building an audience would kill the flourishing of art.

The majority of people who use the internet are "downloaders". They consume content. With a minority being uploaders. They produce content.
It makes more sense to target the "downloaders"/consumers of information/content, and bring them to the content creators. I think this can be achieved through better use of communities, curation, and possibly some sort of recommendations, like youtube does. I generally don't search for things on youtube, and find them through recommendations.

They (downloaders) are more important to the success of a social media platform, so, yes, they should be where the members of the community who want to drive success here aim most of their resources.

That said, a fairer reward system for content creators than currently exists would almost certainly have a massive positive effect, too. And the fairest reward system that I can conceptualize is one that pays out to the content creators 1 to 1 to the collective amount of time that the content consumers spend consuming their content.

Attention is the most valuable currency within the human species, but that isn't currently reflected in the voting rules, neither here (on Hive), nor on any other social media platform (that I'm aware of). I do believe that YouTube includes "average viewing time" in their algorithm for recommended feeds, which indirectly rewards attracting a lot of collective time spent consuming one's content (more people being directed to the content that will likely lead to more ad views, subscriptions and future viewers), but I'm convinced that directly rewarding time spent is a more accurate and objective measure of how valuable one's content is (perceived to be by the collective).

There is a Q&A community and we have @askanything.
https://peakd.com/question/@askanything/askanything-is-back-on-hive
Questions with the tag question always get an answer.

Cool looking community! between AskHive, AskMe and AskAnything we are getting things solved! 😌

I hope one day we will have a help desk/Q&A community that can replace discord but for now it’s a great tool.

I have a userhelp community here. Been waiting to use it when Steem said they would have a huge influx of new users.It was designed to be a "help desk/ticket system" in which people could tag #userhelp in their posts and we'd be alerted to it. Which reminds me I need to clean it up to take off the Steem references haha... But if you ever need to leverage it let me know!
